Life is full of mysteries and even when we try to unravel the mysteries of life, the more confused we are. Sometimes, we find ourselves in a situation whereby we just want to die and leave all the wickedness of this world behind, and in a second thought, we ask ourselves, if we truly die like this, what would the other world be like? Will it truely bring the peace we seek for or continue another struggle?

There are people who are born weak while others born a fighter (those who never give up on life easily) and so we are going to be reading a story of a Lady called Hydeia Broadbent, who was born a fighter. Hydeia was born in 1984 with HIV at a Las Vegas Hospital. Her mother abadoned her in the hospital where she was born after Hydeia and her mother was tested positive for HIV.
