SCI Awareness Month

September is official "Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month."  If you're looking for statistics or other information related to SCIs, you can follow this link to learn more.

I don't have any particularly profound insights to add in commemoration of the month, except to quote the reported axiom of Benjamin Franklin: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

While an ounce of prevention cannot guarantee against injury (if it could, a lot of us would have a lot of ounces), and while a pound of SCI cure is not necessarily available (if it were, a lot of us would also be availing ourselves of a lot of pounds), doing your best to prevent a spinal cord injury is smart when you can do it.
