So at school this afternoon a student in my class played this one song over and over. I couldn’t understand why and it was driving my crazy but now I cant get the words and meaning out of my head. The song was called live like you were dying and the course went:
“I was finally the husband,
“That most the time I wasn’t.
“An’ I became a friend a friend would like to have.
“And all of a sudden goin’ fishin’,
“Wasn’t such an imposition,
“And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.
“Well, I finally read the Good Book,
“And I took a good long hard look,
“At what I’d do if I could do it all again,
“I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
“I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
“And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
“And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying.”
An’ he said: “Some day, I hope you get the chance,
“To live like you were dyin’.”
Now that the song wont leave my head I realized how profound the song really is. I dont know if i really live my life like I am dyin. However I feel like I’m living my life to the fullest and helping people I meet. I mean isn’t that the real meaning of life. To touch as many hearts and make a big impact on other people. People tell me including my Aunt that they wish they could make a difference in peoples lives. I always think than why don’t you! If your one of those people that watched the movie pay it forward or listened to a song about giving back and you thought you would like to give back but you are two busy. Here is your big chance to give back to people living with autism. I have a petition that will help people with autism feel like they belong and we are now at over 5,500 signatures. We need 10,000 more so we can belong. I am asking you to stand up and live like you are dyin. You can make a difference in peoples lives by posting the link to my petition, emailing it to your contact list, Pasting the widget to your profile picture or by emailing the talk shows and telling them its time that we all feel like we belong.
I hope we all get the chance to live like we were dyin.
