Some good people get diseases and die. Some bad people get diseases and die, sometimes absolutely neutral peoples (neither good nor bad) get diseases and die. There can be much debate regarding who is good and who is bad and the meter by which they are measured, but nobody is correct.
Sometimes people get sick, and retreat into their own darkness and vanish.
Sometimes people get sick, and lash out making others pay for their pain or feel sorrow and remorse over their pain – whether they are right or they are wrong.
Sometimes people get sick and influence others, or get sick and get off their own asses and make something different. The thing that might be different may be an attitude, may be an opinion, may be a line of research, and may be a new medicine.
It's these differences that either make the world a better place or make it a hell.
I got sick, it's not that I was good, or great, or bad, or needed to be punished. I am neither lucky nor unlucky, neither chosen nor damned for anything I could have done or even though about doing. I just got sick.
I believe that sometimes, the things that happen to other people may be a lesson for me; which also means that I may ultimately end up as a lesson to another person. Regardless, the only failure is stagnation, is for nothing to change… is to learn nothing from a lesson.
Natural selection is for hamsters. Hamsters get sick and die, leaving only the strong to reproduce. This will ensure a strong population of hamsters for generations to come. Hamsters will not leave a mark on this world, nor will they ever learn a lesson..
So change something. Get off your ass and change something. I am not smart enough to make new medicines, so I build the buildings that hold the machines that make the new medicine. It's all I can do but I am damn great at it, and (humor me) consider that I was supposed to be dead 31 years ago (if there was no insulin) I believe that this small effort has made a change, a positive change that is a result of a different positive change (the discovery and subsequent availability and manufacturing of insulin). Things are changing; you are either in it or watching it go by. You don't get to decide if you get sick or not, but you do get to decide how you participate - and this may affect how you feel about the whole thing.
