Gratitude Challenge ~ Day 14

Today I'm grateful that there are people who are working to unlock the mysteries of the things that ail us.  Autism spectrum disorders, autoimmune diseases, birth defects, heart disease, and all diseases - especially cancer.

It can be frustrating work.   Hopes are often raised, only to be dashed.  Research is dependent on grants.   The many who toil are often faceless, and nameless.  While these people are highly educated, most aren't paid very well.  I'm thankful that they are driven to keep trying so that others may benefit.

The Gratitude Challenge will continue throughout November.  Go to Brenda's Blog, Garden of Learning to join in, or read more posts about gratitude.
