A real Hero

My hats off to Miran Istina. She's only 18, and she's dying, but she's a leader, and she says

"My heart is finally satisfied."

A few decades back my son had the same disease as Miran. There was no cure back then, but the doctors pitched in and did everything humanly possible.  They couldn't save him, but today there's a cure and people like him and Miran don't have to die.  Don't have to, that is, but will, because they won't get that cure.

Miran won't get it because it would cost the insurance companies a buck. The doctors spent approximately a million dollars trying to keep my little boy alive, but that was a different time,  in a different country, before this one became the "homeland".

I feel sad.
