Comparing the struggles of a person living with Parkinson’s Disease to a runner in a race who needs a team of encouragers, columnist Sherri Woodbridge writes that “being an encourager is what we need to be in our race. Sometimes we will cheer others on with tearful understanding. Sometimes with much-needed humor. Sometimes with righteous anger when we see someone giving up. We need to help others push back the dark.”
