The words to the song,
"The Impossible Dream" should be an inspiration to all diabetics, to turn our dream of a diabetes free life into a quest that may not help us currently, but will help others in the near future to live a life free of the aches, pains and complications associated with diabetes.

Every bit, big and small helps !

To dream … the impossible dream …
To fight … the unbeatable foe …
To bear … with unbearable sorrow …
To run … where the brave dare not go …
To right … the unrightable wrong …
To love … pure and chaste from afar …
To try … when your arms are too weary …
To reach … the unreachable star …

This is my quest, to follow that star …
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far …
To fight for the right, without question or pause …
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause …

And I know if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
when I'm laid to my rest …
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach … the unreachable star …

Thanks Mays, you are a very inspirational member of DC. You are very much appreciated.

I have reached for the stars so many times that I got two frozen shoulders. Lol! Physical therapy followed. I still reach for those stars and it has paid off many times. We should try to be the best we are capable of being, for our health, our loved ones and people in general. That is why we help each each other on the diabetes websites.

Richard, thank you for the compliment.
I have always believed that if you don't try, you automatically fail!
I try to encourage everyone to be, rather than to exist.
I am glad to see that you never gave up, or gave in, frozen shoulders and all.
You are the true inspiration to all of us here, and everyone else on the other diabetes websites.

Impossible is a word for those who choose not to do, or to either bother trying at all.

Mays, you are so right. Reach for the stars. That's the ticket. This has always been one of my favorite songs.
