Awesome Roxy

Its Chinese New Year, and I got nowhere to go, so I was like kickin' back and checking on the internet to kill time. I stumbled upon this site, foundmagazine.com. Basically its about stuff people found around them, that intriguing and sometimes funny. Well my ADD infested mind kinda attracted to this 'finding', found by a worker of a physiotherapy clinic in Ontario, Canada.

The note says

"Whoever is reading this I hope you like my drawing. Here is a little story about my life. My name is Roxy and I only have one leg because my other one was cut off because it had cancer."
and at the back of the tissue paper, scribed
"when I was 4 my parents dead cause of a car accident and I was adopted now I'm in grade 4 that's a little story about my life
Roxy"

First, it broke my heart. Kinda feel bad for her. Lost her leg in such a young age. And with cancer, being orphan and adopted, man she's sure must be the unluckiest and saddest kid around.

But, I missed the most important detail. She may be the unluckiest but she's probably the happiest kid alive. Just look at her drawing. The ethereal happy face. With just 3 'magic pen' she somehow manage to say "I'm OK." Roxy, you are my hero. You are the most courageous person I know.

Thank you for the reality check, Roxy.
