We Need A Time-Lapse Image Of ALS

Again this year the MDA and the ALS Association are featuring vignettes of people with Lou Gehrig's Disease to observe ALS Awareness Month in the U.S. They are snapshots of courageous people and are somehow timeless.

Don't you love the time-lapse images from big events? The royal wedding's was amazing. Every year the Indy 500 gives us a magnificent view of a long day of activities. Football games on time lapse are great fun.

Perhaps next year instead of the still-snapshot vignettes of those with ALS we could have a time-lapse image of the disease that takes a person from being the picture of health to a wheelchair and then to a bed and coffin far too fast. That would make an impression. That would really tell the story.
