Re: “Honoring Bill Of Rights Day,” by Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson’s article in the Dec. 15 issue of The Citizen.

Dr. Hendrickson writes: “We poorly understand the elementary concept of rights ... The Declaration Of Independence specifies two essential points we need to understand about our rights: 1) They are God-given; 2) they are inalienable ... nobody has a right to anyone else’s property.”

Will’s physical therapists needed to set goals for him, both short ones to get him through each day’s therapy sessions, and a long one to work towards. The long term goal would show Will, and his family, just how far he had come in a short period of time. On Nov. 6, Will would walk the Strong Legs Run in Atlanta, a 2K race, in his walker.
