Tennis player MaliVai Washington was asked how he
was able to make such a heroic comeback from 1-5
down in the final set of a Wimbledon match. He replied,
"I've been eating a lot of pizza. I'm telling you, that's what
I had last night and the night before."
"Well, she wrote me a letter and we have talked since then, and she said this
is important. She said, 'Please tell everyone, in general I've been blessed with
a wonderful life. Every human being is given some sort of burden in life and
mine happens to be manic depression. It is no heavier a burden than anyone
else's and it is lighter than many. It is simply the card that I drew.' And she
doesn't know this and she doesn't remember this, but when I interviewed
Christopher Reeve, he talked about the card he drew."
