ଯ "WHY ME?"

Million thanks to Edmund Choong for sending this awesome email on the letter written by the late Arthur Ashe to his fan and would like to share with all. Arthur Ashe the legendary Wimbledon tennis player, was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From the world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does GOD have to select you for this bad disease?" To this Arthur Ashe replied: "The world over 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 play professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to the semi-finals, 2 to the finals. When I was holding the trophy cup I never asked GOD, 'Why me?'" "So, today in pain, I should not be asking GOD, 'Why me'?" Happiness keeps you Sweet, Trials keeps you Strong, Sorrow keeps you Human, Failure keeps you Humble and Success keeps you Glowing, but only Faith & Attitude keep you going.....

How is the going? You are the person who got me interested into 'POWER' power point presentation and would like to take my hat off for your creativity. You are my sifu & mentor who gave me all the inspiration to excel in pps. Kinda sad you have stopped doing pps after your computer crashed (agreed that yesterday is history & life is impermanent) and last heard you are into blogging. Kindly email me your URL please.
Take care
