For any boys or indeed girls with DMD what to do if some bully or ignorant person says you're 'weak',

You can say I'll tell you what strength is,

Strength is seeing your muscles waste away but still smiling!

Strength is missing out on things everyone else takes for granted but saying hey, whatever!

Strength is out thinking small minded people and coming up with a new way to do something!

Strength is seeing your wheelchair as an extension of your body, its my legs nothing special!

Strength is watching others eat what you cannot in front of you and imagining what you can instead!

Strength is being honest when it hurts and stopping fun things to rest, we're looking after our bodies!

So if someone says we're weak, we shall say our muscles may be weaker but we're stronger than Arnie!

We showed you what Strength is!
