Editorial - Tuesday, September 24: Facing life’s challenges

WE OFTEN say things ike "life can change in an instant" and "you never think it could happen to you".

Those cliches popped into my head after hearing Shaun and Tanya Kelly's story.

How many times have I wandered home in the dark? Countless.

I'm sure many other people have done that walk over the years, but Shaun was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

As Tanya said, everything is on hold for the couple until Shaun gets better.

But I think it's beautiful that she also said she feels lucky to still have her husband.

When things are terrible, it's hard to look past that and appreciate anything.

I am amazed by both Shaun and Tanya's strength - Shaun for soldiering on in his recovery through his physical pain and Tanya for continuing on, supporting Shaun as well as working.

We hope by publishing this story, someone comes forward with more information about who hit Shaun.
