In a world of ever advancing technology, some view the computer as evil, some good. I've had experiences with both sides. But with the touch of a keyboard, I can communicate across the world to someone I would never meet normally and form friendships based on mutual hobbies, careers, beliefs, etc. While it's a different kind of friendship, I consider it a part of my life that is affirming, helpful, and valuable. People come and go, but there are those who still touch you, if only for a brief moment. I am saddened by news received in one of my internet XS groups. A member lost her three year-old son to cancer today (recently diagnosed).
Nici, our hearts cry for you, though we don't know each other very well. Prayers and thoughts from all over the world are with you. May God grant you comfort and peace.
In memory of Felix.
