hands

POST #    438

i think everyone would agree that hands are pretty damn important, but there was this unbelievable story on good morning america today. as a three year old in korea, woosik chung, had his hands severed by the fan on a tractor engine. his dad, who was a surgeon in the south korean army, looked for a specialist, but couldn't find one, so he did the operation himself. he re-attached the hands, and woosik eventually regained full use of his hands. now, 28, woosik chung is now dr. woosik chung and a first-year orthopedic resident at columbia-presbyterian.

read the whole story here.

your year in school? did he go to your school?

and it's nice to know someone else watches gma. unless you flip around, which is quite possible as well.
