To the Man Responsible for Me Living

On this day in 1921, Dr. Frederick Banting along with colleagues at the University of Toronto successfully isolated insulin from a Pancreas of a dog. He would then use this insulin a year later to treat a 14 year-old boy who had Diabetes. The rest is history.

Thank you Dr. Banting, for giving me and anyone else with Diabetes a chance to live out our lives to the fullest. I, along with others probably, are truly grateful for this discovery in medicine.

Love Lost... But Not Forgotten

This idea has been on my mind lately. The idea of loved ones that have passed on still living among us - not haunting us or anything like that, but just living among us, and observing the lives the rest of us continue to live. I guess there's plus and minuses to that (like all things). Anyways, enjoy!
