A Strong Spine

My Dear Child,


The back or spine has a very important function in our body, since it allows us to have support and also protects the spinal cord. The spine has about 120 muscles. Did you know that you would be taller if you went into space? For example, if you could go to the moon, you would grow a little more. Astronauts who return to Earth after their missions, usually grow between 3.8 and 5 cm, although they then return to their normal height because of the earth’s gravity. Thank God for our spine that helps us maintain an upright position. Let us keep strong and always be a support for others too.


“I have made you today like a fortified city, like bronze walls.” Jeremiah 1:18
