Continuing to Triumph
When I started to read the article (see “An Unlikely Scholar,” Dec. 14), I thought I was going to read another ordinary article of someone who turned his or her life around. But, instead, what I read is someone who continues to triumph even though there are obstacles still placed in his way.
I am a firm believer that we are the sum of our choices, and Dr. Cooper, while his illnesses are no fault of his own, continues to make choices that change the lives of others for the better. I am going to share this story with everyone I know, because this man, Dr. Cooper, embodies what it means to give selflessly.
