A Story to Break Your Heart

January 7th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized

I warn you, this is extremely sad. You should know in advance that the kid in the videos, Ben Breedlove, died not long after making them, and on Christmas. You will fall in love with him and then know that he is no longer on this earth. I don’t even know why I’m posting about him, it’s like spreading heartbreak. I guess I just want to acknowledge the passing of this impossibly sweet kid.

There are two videos: part one, and part two.

    Such a sweet boy and I don’t even know him- Just his smile tells me. I think that it is wonderful that he can show to not be scared and that there is peace on the other side. At least that is what I believe for all the people that I love and have passed, and also for me when my time comes.

    Some of the lyrics to the piece of music that accompanies the videos:
    “I find it kinda funny
    And I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I’m dying
    Are the best I’ve ever had.”

    Thanks for posting the link.

    Yeah, he clearly picked that song very pointedly.

    Karen, yeah, he seems like he was the sweetest kid.
