A Message of Thanks

I am thrilled to publish a new story Live The Dream by Tony Armenti.

He was just seven when he found himself lying in a hospital bed with his eyes bandaged. He would lose an eye. There was concern he would lose sight in both eyes.

In the middle of this dreadful time he was visited by a young girl Francis who had also recently lost an eye. Francis told him, “Don’t worry. It’s not so bad. You get used to it.”

Tony never forgot how much that visit meant to him. All these years later he sends his thanks to Francis and tells his story of how things worked out for him.

At the end of Tony’s story there is a link to a story by Francis about how things worked out for her, I’ve Been Proposed To Five Times.

Both of these stories highlight something Jenny and I see every day. Eye loss is an awful experience but it does not need to define you or your life.

One advantage of losing an eye was that i got to wear a black leather eye patch for quite a while. Weirdly enough it made women take more of an interest in me.
