The reason for my tears

I cried this week. A lot.

A friend commented on my latest facebook status about my emotional week. It made me realize that my infrequent, personal facebook posts made it look like I was a depressed, blubbering mess for the week. That’s the furtherest thing from the truth.

My tears were due to the brilliance of humans. I looked at my friends and realized they are my heroes. They refuse to be pulled down and fight adversity with more thought for others than what they’re going through themselves. What would be roadblocks to others are detours to them. I wanted to use the word adventures, but raising more than $1,000 in a “Fuck Cancer” campaign only weeks after major surgery doesn’t really match our definition of adventure.

I am honored to know my friends – my heroes.

I want to finish this with a quote from John Green’s new book, The Fault in Our Stars.

“You say you’re not special because the world doesn’t know about you, but that’s an insult to me. I know about you.”

Thank you for letting me know about you.
