Today, I learned the story of @kdicicco, @demonseaweed, as well as their friends Kyle, Holly, and Dale. Their story has both reminded me how fragile life is, and shown me how great this community continues to be.
Three or four years ago, I almost lost my mother to a brain aneurysm. That was the first realization in quite a while about how fragile life is, and how death can come so quickly to those you care for. The story that I learned of today just reinforces that feeling of seeing how quickly lives can be taken. From the news stories, to Matt bringing up the news during RTX 2015, to Kevin talking about those lost, and to having Hannah at RTX 2016 during the podcast panel...this community has rallied together to bring some light during the dark times.
Honestly, bringing light to people's lives is the one thing that we should do as humans. There's so much hate, pain, and sadness in the world. Sometimes, the light is important for all of us. It brings out the best in people.
I'm glad that two people (dare I say RT family...) can share their stories with us all, both of those that have passed and the ones they continue to make. I'm glad to see you both moving forward, and continuing to get better and better.
May Holly, Kyle, and Dale rest in peace knowing that Kevin and Hannah continue to bring light and happiness to this world.
