Arthur Ashe, the famous tennis player who won three Grand SLAM trophies died of AIDS, because his blood had got infected during a heart surgery suffered in 1983. He received letters from his fans from all over the world. One of them wrote to him: “Why God chose such an awful disease?” Arthur Ashe answered: “There are more than 50 millions of children in the world who start learning tennis, 5 millions learn tennis, 500.000 learn professional tennis, 50.000 enter competitions, 5.000 go to the Grand Slam tournaments, 50 go to Wimbledon, 4 of them reach the semifinals and 2 are in the finals. When I was raising up a trophy I never said to God: Why me? That’s why even today I can’t ask God: Why me?

Trials make you strong.

Troubles make you human.

Failure keeps you humble and success gives you glow, but only Faith gives you the power to move forward…
