On most days I receive at least one email that according to the sender must be shared with as many people as possible in order to ensure the wellbeing of some aspect of the human condition. It seems the fate of too many issues or too many people hinges on whether or not I respond to the friendly persuasion and electronic coercion of the digital age. Perhaps it does all come down to me, because ever since I’ve applied an extremely liberal use of the “delete key,” the world really does seem to be going through a rough patch.
So in order to atone for my sin of “being part of the problem, because I’m never part of the solution,” I am going to share with as many people as possible one of the few stories that I’ve received via email that is truly worth sharing.
Below is the email and images that I received from my friend, Warren Spindler regarding the recent loss of one his good friends:
I made up a poster to tell people who knew Sam that he passed away months ago and posted it on the back of a sign on the bike path we used to walk. Last Sunday, I noticed the sign was removed and muttered about it for a few minutes walking home. Today, as I turned onto the path I noticed a new sign. At first I thought it was a parity of the original. Not at all! What a wonderful surprise it was and the following kilometers flew by the rest of my run. This made my day and I want to share it.
There really is hope for the human kind!
