Every time I read a post by Bill Sweeney, I am strengthened and inspired. Bill has been paralyzed for over twenty years with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). He cannot walk, talk, eat, or even breathe without a respirator. Bill gets his nutrition through a feeding tube. He controls his computer with eye movements. That’s how he writes his blog.
