    I say, "What a woman"!! I can not imagine that I could ever be so strong. She has more guts than most women, and she survived along with her child. If that is not a miracle, then what is?

    Ya know Scrubs, I really like you!!! LOL!!

    This woman was incredible. I don't think I could have done it, but I am a real baby with pain most of the time.

    wow is that really true. how has she got by with no electricity, water etc,it amazes me. but i say what a brave woman. i just cant believe that could happen.

    The no water, no electricity is fairly common in other countries -- and unfortunately -- even in ours!

    I don't think I could have done the section on myself either!

    Scrubs -- big time brownie points to you!! What a perceptive and intelligent guy you are!!
