In 2003 Simonne Butler Had Her Hands Severed And Her Neck Cut By A Madman With A Samurai Sword. Today She's Over It, Giving The Thumbs Up To Life...

Ten years ago the late, crazed, drug fuelled madman Antoine Dixon severed this woman's hands nearly completely off and cut the back of her neck just short of her spinal column.
With a Samurai sword.
Today this remarkable woman is an inspiration to those people who might think that life's dealt them a raw deal. You know what I mean.
Who think the world's against them if they can't get a carpark outside their favourite cafe.
My friends, read this
and give the thumbs up to Simonne.
And life...
Thank you Flying Tortoise for re-publishing 
this article. I'm sharing my story with the world to empower and inspire men and women alike to know they can become the hero of their own story regardless of the challenges they have faced up to this moment.
Best wishes to you all as you begin or continue your own healing journey.
