Feeding the Good
There are two wolves inside us all, as the old parable attributed to a variety of sources goes – one good, one bad. The tale is typically framed by a grandfather imparting this wisdom to his grandson. The grandfather describes the dueling wolves: the bad wolf represents negative mindsets, like anger, sorrow, regret, guilt and self-pity; the good wolf embodies the positive, like joy, peace, love, compassion and hope.
The grandson asks, “Which wolf will win?”
The grandfather answers, “The one you feed.”
In March 2012, 5-year-old Justin Hudsco of Northampton prepared to leave Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital after two weeks of learning how to walk with a prosthetic leg. With roughly 50 family members, friends and a special guest in attendance, a party was held at Good Shepherd in celebration of his release. Local media even showed up to cover the occasion.
Justin’s prosthesis – designed by Boas Surgical – on which he walked independently little more than six months after losing his leg, displayed the mask and logo of his favorite WWE wrestler, Rey Mysterio.
