2012: Time To Believe In Something Bigger Than Ourselves

Since it was shown on the Today Show, many of you have already seen Ben Breedlove’s inspirational video about his brief and beautiful life. The two-part clip has since gone viral and has acquired millions of hits on YouTube alone. But, it’s too good to miss. So I’m posting it here (part one and two) to keep Ben’s message and his memory alive.

Faith is a funny thing. It waxes. It wanes. It weaves its way into our souls even when we most resist it. It speaks to us when we least expect it, in unexpected moments, through unexpected people (in Ben’s case – his favorite rapper). Yet, if we allow it, we are transformed by its presence and restored by its persistence.

Here’s to Ben Breedlove, whose last name alone speaks volumes. And to 2012. And to faith renewed, for all of us.

Cheers, blessings, peace, love, and happiness!
