What is the meaning of life?

Life is a miracle.  It is my belief that we were put here on earth with a mission and when that is completed God will call you home.  You will spend eternal life in heaven, provided you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

God has been good to me, at my age 92 I have been fortunate to play basketball in high school, college, New York Knickerbockers.  Unfortunately, during my junior year at college I rolled over a Navy player and hit the floor on my back resulting in (an injury of the) second disc that prevented me from continuing to play basketball.  It was told to me by medical doctors if I continued playing I would be crippled in six months and for me to stop playing and get a job.  I did and as of this date I feel fine.
