Mattie Stepanek dies
    #2819835 - 06/23/04 03:40 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

A 13-year old boy, who was dying from muscular dystrophy and was a poet and advocate for world peace, passed on today. He was bright and optimistic and a minor celebrity known for his unbridled optimism and hope; basically a little Buddha in disguise.

Farewell Mattie!  :heart:

Try a search. They are showing an older interview on Larry King live. Quite an a amazing boy. "Only the good die young..."

Yes, a beautiful soul left too soon.
Bye for now, little bro.

I was watching the Larry King re-run last night while I was working out. I don't usually watch T.V. except when I am running at the gym, so I feel very lucky to have seen this feature.

This kid was amazing, and I agree that he seemed to be a Bhudda in disguise. It gave me a renewed resolve in my slipping optimism in my life.

He said we all have different heart songs, and each song plays differently, and that it was his job in life to help people to find their heart songs.

Sigh.

Bufo & Seuss: What disguise?

I stand corrected!
