One Paragraph that explains Life

Have you ever asked God ‘WHY ME’ in your bad times, if yes then you need to read this:

Arthur Ashe(July 10, 1943 – February 6, 1993) the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS-related pneumonia which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983, he received many sympathy letters from his fans. His fans loved and respected him for his sportsmanship and one of emotional letter conveyed: “why did God have to select you for such a bad disease?” To this Arthur Ashe replied: “50 million children start playing tennis; 5 milion learn to play tennis; 5,00,000 learn professional tennis; 50,000 come to the circuit; 5,000 reached grandslam; 50 reach Wimbledon; 4 to the semifinals; 2 to the final and when i was holding the cup i never asked God ‘WHY ME?’ and now in the pain i should not be asking God ‘WHY ME?’

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.
We have no right to ask when sorrow comes, Why did this thing come to me? Unless we ask the same question for every  moment of happiness that comes our way.

By his words it is very prominent that Arthur Ashe had a strong faith in God. I am not of his kind. But even in that case I am not going ask God “Why me?”, because I am a follower of Stephen Hawkins and God is merely a fictitious character for me. Things that happen to us good or bad are just probably mere coincidence and the way we and others make things for ourselves. In case of Arthur I would call it a coincidence. But his story teaches a lesson, we must be strong enough to take things that happen to us, than to curse God or the situations around.
