Aimee Copeland and The Miracle of Kindness


 "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal."

Henry Ford

  
Aimee Copeland, the sweet and incredibly courageous 24-year-old UGA graduate, who battled a flesh-eating infection inspired a group of generous builders and designers to create a new addition to her home, equipping it for her special needs.





What began as a beautiful time in nature with friends turned tragic when Aimee encountered an equipment malfunction while playing on a homemade zip line.  Her fall set the stage for the development of necrotizing fasciitis which led to amputations of her four limbs and the failure of her five major organs.



Aimee fought after losing parts of her four limbs to a flesh-eating bacteria, but after numerous prayers, and an incredible will to survive, she is now ready to go home and start a new chapter in her life.


"It's her "can't quit" attitude that inspired Pulte Homes to help Aimee conquer the new challenges she'll face when getting out of rehab; they built a state-of-the-art addition to Aimee's home, designed with her fighting spirit in mind."


Aimee is an absolute inspiration to everyone. Her strength, willpower and determination to live is really admirable. She's definitely a role model for those who always like to create obstacles where they don't exist.


Aimee Copeland tragedy has awaken a need of kindness in our community. All humans have a need for contribution and genuinely want to make a difference in this world. Service and generosity are great ways that kindness and compassion can be demonstrated. 

When our actions are inspired by our desire to help others without an expectation of anything in return we are blessed with an incredible sense of accomplishment and happiness.
 
The key to a happy life is to give back and become less focused on our immediate needs.
