  •  I suggest the "Diving Bell and the Butterfly" (0+ / 0-)

    a movie that won a Cannes movie festival award in 2007.

    Then you can tell my son who has lived trapped in a body that doesn't work for him to wait.

    My son is 19 and lived like that since age 7. Luckily he is not dying like Christopher Reeve and others who simply couldn;t wait any longer.

    •  Okay (0+ / 0-)

      I feel for you, and for your son.  But do you honestly believe that the things that he has been working on won't affect other people in ways just as profound as you hope your son will be affected?  People are out of work, losing their houses, dying from the lack of health care, even starving to death.  They aren't any more important than your son is, but they aren't any less, either

      Many Christians believe that God took six days to create the universe, and that's with omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience to help.  Let's give the mere mortal President Obama a little longer than that for the huge job of setting the country right again.
