Try This On For Thighs

Headline: Girl's prosthetic legs stolen for second time
Melissa Huff, an Arcadia High School student who uses a $16,000 prosthetic limb to play softball for the school team and another one, valued at $12,000, for everyday use, said both were taken from her bedroom Tuesday.
I've heard of stealing 2nd base, but this is just cruel! What kind of an evil person would do such a thing? I'm stumped. Don't they realize how difficult life must be for this girl already?

I'll bet if the shoe were on the other foot...um, you know what I mean. What I'm trying to say is, until they hop a mile in her shoe, they'll never fully understand the personal trials she has to endure.

I would venture to guess the thing didn't just get up and walk out by itself. Those thieves won't have a leg to stand on in this case - especially since they threw it into the backyard.

Although it is the second time this happened to Melissa, she seems to land on her foot and maintains a positive outlook regardless of her circumstances. She certainly has not been pegged as some sort of quitter.

Just allow me to go out on a limb here and say, if she could only keep her robbers at arm's length, she'd eventually get a leg up.

I am sure she's leaning toward that goal even as I type.
