Why Me?
The legendary wimbledon player was dying of CANCER…
From world over, he received letters from his fans.
One of which conveyed:  -“Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?
To this Arthur Ashe replied: 50,000,000   children start playing tennis. 5,000,000   learn to play tennis
500,000   learn professional tennis. 50,000   come to the circuit. 5000 reach the grand slam…
50 reach wimbledon 4 to semifinal 2 to the finals.
When I was holding a cup, I never asked GOD: “Why me?”
And today in pain I should not be asking God “Why me?”
Happiness keeps you sweet. Trails keep you strong.  Sorrow keeps you human.
Failure keeps you humble. Success keeps you glowing.
And only God keeps you growing.
and only faith & attitude keeps you going…

  • Thanks, MAHINUR, for this beautiful reflection. It made me to consider how thankful I have been with THE CREATOR, the GIVER OF LIFE. It made me to consider that there are so many reasons why we have to give thanks even for things we consider, humanly speaking, tragedies. OUR CREATOR IS LOVE. Thans for the images, they so eloquent.
