An artistic legacy doing good things
Just a note about everyone we know and everyone we don't know but learn about along the way thanks to social media.
We're painfully aware of how disease can strike and even take a life anytime, anywhere. But so are you and so are all of those people we don't know. What social media has allowed us is the opportunity to reach out and support everyone needing to connect or needing to be lifted up with a kind word, a prayer or just a simple "LIKE" on their page.
We've learned about so many people who have been affected by Adrenal Cancer (one of the rarest we know) because of FaceBook. We've made friends along the way that we'll know and value for the rest of our lives, thanks to social media.
What is more important than person-to-person connection in this life? Not to get overly heavy, but with everyone going their own way, taking care of their own responsibilities and wrapped up (as they should be) in getting their own lives in order, isn't it amazing and heartwarming when someone tells you they care? Or when you tell someone else that YOU care for them as you and they go through life's toughest challenges?
Spencer passed away six and a half years ago, yet, through the sharing of his art, writings and music and through the generosity of people like you, his talented friends and others, he is not forgotten and good, lasting relationships have formed. I ask again, what's more important than human connection?
Who knew that the same 'tool' that allows me to tell you what I'm eating, the music I'm listening to, the family reunion I'm invited to or the trick my dog can do can also do so much good for people suffering from loss or disease? Thanks to Facebook I am more in touch with others and more able to understand that everyone wants the same thing - to understand and care for others as well as to be understood and cared for.
Thanks to everyone we've known or met along the way - without you there would be no Spencer Bell Legacy Project, and we would not have learned so much about other beautiful people along the way.
