Courage and Resiliance

Last spring, I witnessed a young bike rider fly through the air, and land near my car. I was terrified for her. But Laura Quade is a woman of courage and resilience.

Today, she is learning how to use a walker and even do handstands in the pool. She is  starting to use crutches.  She is now able to take physical therapy


But there is still much work to be done. Her double vision has stayed, which may require  surgery to correct it. Her bone growth has been slow, which may mean  a bone graft.

 I have been summoned to testify in court soon about the man who drove his car into her bike, sending her sailing about 30 feet, before crashing on the pavement.

Despite the random craziness of this crash, Laura continues to exhibit a positive outlook, giving she and others a brighter outlook.
