I never expected…
I never expected to find a meaningful friendship online. A year ago, I received a social media request from a severely disabled man. His name is Sean. He shatters stereotypes about the disabled. He is funny and spirited and supportive. There is not a single day that goes by that he doesn't tell me that he loves me. It is thoughtful but it reminds me to do the same. I get busy trying to make a living, a life and I forget how important it is to tell the people in my life I love them. That is Sean's "gift." We share a love of Irish Folk Music. I am African-American. He is white. With all that is going on in the world it is nice to be reminded that when you strip away all of the things that make us different what remains is love, friendship...and Irish Folk Music.
