...I'm in a thoughtful mood.
I often get bogged down in hearing all the terrible things that happen in this world.
The hatred for our neighbours.
It's there.....24/7 in the news.
It can often make one lose faith in humanity.
I feel that my faith has been a little restored hearing Stephen's Story
A heart breaking story actually, and one that has left me red eyed every time I read his story.
But.....totally overwhelmed at his courage and bravery.......and all those people too, who have been touched by it enough to donate to his just giving page.
With help of Jason Manford and celebrity figures tweeting his plight to help him get to his target, it has reached a much wider audience and touched so many hearts. That's where the internet comes into its own. I'm sure the Teenage Cancer Trust is overwhelmed by the support, and the money raised will help so many teenagers having to go though this in their lives.
Cancer is terrible. Many of us have been touched by it, either directly or indirectly. It's cruel. No one should have to suffer, especially young children and teenagers who haven't even yet begun to experience what life has to offer.
Life can be hard, life can be cruel.......but Stephen's just giving page and Facebook page show just how many caring and wonderful people there are in this world.
