Mondays are not really my favorite days of the week. I know I am not alone in this.
This morning was particularly harsh because I spent the last half hour of Sunday night watching a YouTube video that had my heart breaking and sobbing uncontrollably. (I’m sure you all have heard about this and I am the last person on the planet to get clued in to popular media…)
A Facebook link took me to the video about Zach Sobiech, an 18-year old boy who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, at 14 and in 2012 was given months to live. What is even more tragic is that he passed away less than three weeks after the video was published on YouTube. I didn’t know this going in and it made it so much more poignant.
In the video, Zach talks about being able to express himself through music. There is a video for one of his songs “Clouds” on YouTube as well as a celebrity-Skyped version as well. You can also buy the song on iTunes to raise money for the Zach Sobiech Research Fund.
“You don’t have to find out you’re dying to start living.”
– Zach Sobiech
It is really touching and emotional and really makes you realize that Mondays might not be so bad after all.
