Most often in life, we are inspired by the stories of others that might have never been told when turns couldn’t have change hands or destinies fulfilled in one way or the other.
Life has taught us nothing but to appreciate the little life we own as far as we can breathe, smile, eat, walk around, do the things we love doing, and above all have the hopes of the better days that never came.
Meet, the 40-year-old man who goes by the name Everest, who one day woke up and had his whole body aching. He was rushed to a hospital and in the course of receiving treatment his breath stopped and doctors pronounced him dead.
Miraculously, Everest came back to life two (2) days after as doctors, nursing staff, hospital administrators, and the entire community received the miraculous news in shock.
He was diagnosed with hepatitis B; a potentially life-threatening liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) which affects largely the liver that can make one grow weak. After the diagnosis, Everest was giving medications but it never changed anything since his case even became worse.
Later, Everest was diagnosed with Tuberculosis; a potentially serious infectious bacterial disease that mainly affects the lungs thus the respiratory system of humans.
The family of Everest has sold all the cattle they own and is now poor due to the numerous visits to health facilities just to seek the wellbeing of their brother, husband, friends, and blood who was once a family listener. The wife of Everest is now charged with working for other people so that she could provide for his husband and children.
Too much often we underestimated the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an inspiring compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which could have the potential of turning a life around. Let’s be kind to one another because no act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.
