There are few people who are worth their place on this planet. Rom Houben is one of those.
The Belgian man, surviving a horific car crash was thought to be in a vegetative state for 23 years, however he was conscious all along..he has lived in a state of non-communication with the outisde world until now. I admire this man.
If Esther Rantzen was still alive i’m sure a ‘heart of gold’ badge would be winging its way to Liege. And deservedly so.
Rom with his special keyboard
After a new head scan, doctors found that his brain was active and he can now communicate using a special keypad.
It made me think of other so called ‘vegetables’
and the stories they might tell if they were given special keypads.
a vegetable with speakable pad allowing communication
Fotunately for Rom, he is from belgium, so he didn’t actually miss anything.
