  • This story teaches that a state of despair is no manner in which to live.

  • Often, when someone has been in a coma, they come out with memories (more likely hallucinations), that seem so real they really appear to have happened. Coma patients frequently remember things so vividly they appear to be real memories.

  • This story imparts the healing power of a person who is simply "willing to care" for someone, even if it can cause them pain.

  • When we lose everything, we tend to gain nothing back without help and support of loved ones.

  • This book describes the many trials and tribulations that coma patients go through. One would consider this counterintuitive, being that one is considered "unconscious" when in a coma. I can testify personally, however, that when you are in a coma, you are not asleep. It's a sort of dream sort of state.

  • Most of all, this story tries to convey the message not to give up the tough times for easier ones if it's not right. Sometimes we must all bear seemingly unbearable pain.
