I have always loved this speech from the movie Armageddon (see video below), but now I realize that there is an interesting parallelism between this sci-fi movie and what we are living right now with the quest for the solution of ME/CFS and related diseases. Just as the US president says in the movie (where a menacing asteroid is travelling toward the Earth), for the first time in the history of the planet we have the technology to understand what is going on in the bodies and in the brains of ME patients and hopefully the tools to end this tragic loss of lives. And just as it happens in the movie, we have to join our efforts in order to fight this global threat.
