    "Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round-remembering that the man who fights one more round is never whipped."
    ---James Corbett


    I wanted to share a little of my will to everyone who reads this. 2 weeks ago, I received a "well wishes" card from a long lost friend, and this quote was written in it. I read it over and over again till in was clinging in the cores of my weakened heart. I have AIDS, which is in its critical stage.

    Later that week, it was about 2am when I started to get really, really sick and couldn't even get up. It felt like someone was choking me to death and I was all alone in my apartment. Just when I fell to the floor and gave up any hope of getting any help what-so-ever, that's when I remembered this quote.

    Fight one more round.....it kept ringing in my ear and I decided to fight. I struggled all my way to the medical centre about 2 blocks away from my place and fainted right at the counter. I wouldn't be sharing with you all of this if I hadn't chose to fight my one more round, my one more battle. If I have to fight another, I will. My only wish, to all those who are confronting death, don't succumb to it. Don't give it the opportunity to show its power to you. Fight it, it doesn't matter if you lose, just fight one more round.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
