My father was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma(a type of blood cancer) a couple of months back. We all were shattered.
I asked god "Why me?" The examples you have cited in this post dawned upon me as I looked around to realize that people go through worst circumstances than mine. At least my lived his life diseaseless till 66 and that he is back home albeit extremely weak and therefore bedridden.
We all should thank god everyday for what we have instead of cribbing over these seemingly "miserable" circumstances.
