I am a C4-C5 Quadriplegic from a forced landing airplane crash in the Minnesota River Valley due to engine failure immediately after takeoff on a beautiful July 2nd summer evening in 2003. At that time, I was a 26-year-old electrical engineer and taught quality verification and testing to the likes of Samsung in Korea, Sony and Japan, Microsoft, Motorola, Intel, a fun list of the Who's-Who of the high-tech world. Suddenly I was thrust into a world in which I didn't quite fit. A world designed for the "standard human". I was still human, still me, but my hands and fingers didn't work. I found myself like a dolphin unable to return to the water. For those who might enjoy a dash of science fiction, I could just as well be a member of some alien race stuck on some strange alien world.
