Why Me?

Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr. was a prominent African American tennis player who was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia . During his playing career, he won three Grand Slam titles. The legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
"Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"?
To this Arthur replied:
The world over -- 50,000,000 children start playing tennis, 5,000,000 learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD "Why me? And today in pain I should not be asking GOD "Why me?"

Happiness keeps you Sweet, trials keep you Strong, sorrow keeps you human, failure Keeps you Humble, success keeps you glowing, but only God keeps you going.....
