People of Georgia

Just one photo for now. This is of my great friend Dennis Holt, from California, USA, living with his family in Georgia (thus a fine candidate for my People of Georgia series) and involved in all sorts of humanitarian and spiritual work. Yesterday he managed to break his 2 lower leg bones in 3 places while playing soccer, and this is him today, about 18 hours and 1 operation later, 5 screws and a bunch of amazing stitches into the bargain. 5-7 more days in hospital, up to 3 months on crutches, they say. But still smiling - good pain drugs, maybe? Seriously, you can't keep a good man down, and this is one of those. Hang in there, bro.

Sorry to hear that, what a bad luck. Hope his leg fixes soon but it's probably going to be a slow proccess. As far as I can see he's not the kind of guy who will whine and complain about it ;)
