I’ve been thinking about Kyle’s story and his mom, and it strikes me that one of the reasons it’s so very compelling, was, yes, what an incredible gift he gave her. It cost him a lot of planning, time, money, and devotion to pull it off, and he pulled it off, and what an incredible and insightful act of love.  And how many people he never knew, at 25, would be affected and touched by what he was doing.  The whole thing just totally wows me.

But there’s also this: there’s this deep, innate human yearning that every person who’s ever lived can relate to of wishing you could go back, just for one day, and have back something that was dear to you. Something that you’ve lost.

How often do we actually get to?

Kyle made that happen for his mother that day.  To life!

Yes. Exactly. And sadly, not often. But perfect when it happens.

AND! kudos to the mother! Who obviously raised him in such a way that he would be able to do that for her.
