the next time you visit that boy, tell him life is never over, and that no matter what other people say, he can reach the skies. i once new someone that had cancer, and she did not let anything stand in her way, she died doing what she loved best, art, so i would let the boy do what he loves, and let his spirit shine free.
Wow. Just wow. The poem is amazing and give the little boy a hug for me please!
This reminds me of when I lost my great-aunt to cancer...I wasn't alive then, but my mom was always so sad about it because she'd really loved her. Cancer is an aweful disease. Hopefully one day there will be a cure.
Oh, this is so nice and straight to the point. The cause is lovely too. I would have reviewed this story before but I'd never heard of it. It should get more publicity!
Author's Response: I'm glad you feel that way about it! I'm not exactly sure how to get people to know of it though. Thanx for the review! iggybaby
Poor kid! I will definitely remember him in my prayers. The poem was beautiful. I'm going to add this to my favorites. ~God bless
Author's Response: thank you. by reviewing this you have made sure that he will like it. i wasn't sure of it. iggybaby
The power of positive thinking...
I think your poem is one of the nicest things you can do for anyone(I'm guessing you've read this to the poor kid.) Such a few words can really make a difference, especially for little kids, as they wouldn't have possibly the idea that the first eight years of a person's life "reaps" less than a following eight, and quite possibly I think there might not be a difference, anyways.
Regarless of the existance of innate ideas (or lack therof) and the purity of children's thought, your poem would make for an excelent birthday card to other children in the same situation.
Author's Response: Actually I haven't read it to him. he lives two hours away so i'm just sending him a card. i'm not even sure he'll understand it because he's french. oh well. And yeah, I should give other kids birthday cards like that. thanx for the idea and review! iggybaby
