We all do what we feel is proper for the common purpose of supporting Daniel, Cathy, their children, his family and friends, in these times of dealing with sadness, fear, hope, and the frustrations of medical unknowns and greedy insurance companies.
Whatever works for us as individuals to help cope with all these array of emotions, is what is “real” and “right” to us. As human beings on this planet we all have earned the right to choose the means by which we express our spirituality and there should be no judgment casted on anyone who differs from your own chosen method. Trust me; Daniel would not want it that way. Instead we should embrace and respect each other’s individuality and remind ourselves of our common goal; to provide our continual support and hope for Daniel’s recovery.
Daniel’s blog serves not only to keep us up to date with all the recent news of his condition, it also provides a therapeutic means for us to share our fond memories of Daniel, our bond with him, learning experiences with him, struggles we overcame together, his influence on our lives, or anything that ties us to him in some way. Whatever it may be, it is more than okay, because it comes from a place of love.
I highly encourage all of you to keep doing your vital part in this process, whether it is praying for Daniel to Allah, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Coatlicue (aka.. La Virgen de Guadalupe) etc… or reading scripture in the bible, Koran, or whatever it is you have chosen to believe in, please continue to keep Daniel in your thoughts and prayers. If you have contributed to Daniel’s blog, keep it coming, and if you have thought about it, but have yet to exercise your awesome blogging skills, don’t be hesitant, your words are just as important as the rest of ours. If you visit him daily, weekly, or monthly, just keep coming to see him whenever you can, everything we all do matters.
