Claire Harper is a disengaged working mother. She does everything she can to deny her four year old daughter, Zoey's Down Syndrome. At times she even goes as far as to deny her very existence. When Zoey and her husband are in a..." Read more of this review »
The World According to Mister Rogers by Fred Rogers
“Part of the problem with the word 'disabilities' is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.”

“The enemy uses those things your insecure about. Free yourself and take your power back by being secure in who you are - flaws and all.”
Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

“When you focus on someone's disability you'll overlook their abilities, beauty and uniqueness. Once you learn to accept and love them for who they are, you subconsciously learn to love yourself unconditionally.”
Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

“Holding on to weight (i.e. anger, bitterness, the past, hatred) will not only hold you back, but also block your blessings. You've got to let some things go to move forward.”
Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

“Some people simply REFUSE to be happy. If they were stuck in a tunnel you can show them the way out and give them a light, but they will just sit there complaining about how they got there. They are more willing to fight to STAY there instead of fighting to coming out. Okay it happened. Now what? Stop focusing so hard on how you got there, focus on how you're going to get out! Keep it moving!”
Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.”
Oprah Winfrey

“What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it. Don't complain.”

Margaret Aranda No More Tears: A Physician Turned Patient Inspires Recovery

Hi Emmie,

In 2006, I was in a tragic car accident with my 3-year old (she is ok). I suffered a traumatic braininjury and this is my Memoir. Chapter One takes you to the door of heaven in my Near-Death Experience. People tell me you have to read it in a quiet place with no interruptions. I hope you like it, as nothing is more real than real life itself. Inspiring and motivating, it shows you how you can beat the odds and be that one-in-a-million that gets to make it. That's me and you. And it can be anyone else with the gumption.

Always,
Margaret Aranda, M.D.
