Why Me?

I received the following story by e-mail. I'm not sure it really happened. Still, I like the message it sends us.

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS. 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 Ashe replied:

The world over --
5 crore (10 million) children start playing tennis,
50 lakh (100 thousand) learn to play tennis,
5 lakh 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.
