I think that the majority of people that suffer from catastrophic incidents do not get the hype you are referring to but to resent the ones that have seems to make poor sense. Remember we are not in their shoes and yes I have felt resentful myself. It is a human and natural feeling but let it come and then toss it away as it will serve no purpose to resent anyone.
They are the victims that bring to the forefront the need to carry on the special olympics to inspire others, they are the ones in the lime light and they are human beings just as we are.
That does not make their pain or loss less then ours. I am sure everyone here could find someone in the forums who has it worse then us yet here we are all equal and we care and support one another, no strings attached.
