How To Live

Some time ago I watched a documentary about the separation of a pair of 3-year-old conjoined twins - joined at the head.

Doctors had initially predicted at birth they would only live for weeks, but they defied the odds. Learning even to walk, one in front of the other.

Their mother told the interviewer:

"They want to live. They want to show us...how to live."
