WHY ?! – Inspiring [1]

Ada artikel bagus yang layak untuk direnungi, makanya Tiwi coba share di sini :

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player from USA was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. 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:

“The world over – 50 million children start playing tennis,
5 million 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 semi final,
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,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human,
Failure keeps you Humble &
Success keeps you Glowing,

but only

Faith & Attitude Keeps you Going…

“Have great hopes and dare to go all out for them, Have great dreams and dare to live them, Have tremendous expectations and believe in them – Arthur Ashe.”

Kalo’ dalam versi singkatnya isi surat itu, dituliskannya dalam bentuk quotes :

If I were to say, “God, why me?” about the bad things, then I should have said, “God, why me?” about the good things that happened in my life.

CERDAS !! 🙂
