ladies and gentlemen, the world we live in.
reblog for the last gangnam style.
Will anyone take a moment to read this?
This is my brother Mikey.
He has autism, and his birthday party is tomorrow.
My parents and I love my brother so much, I just wished other people felt the same way.
His birthday parties with relatives have never spent time with him or given him a gift. As if he didn’t understand.
His best friend (who was paid) never came back to see him since the summer …
and since then, we’ve been trying to find him new friends to hang out with.
My mom starts crying because she wants the best for her boy.
Most people don’t want to be friends with someone who’s “too different”… but I want to challenge this.
I want to show my mom and my brother how much people care about him.
He’s not going to have a big party like most would at 17, I will be thanking God if three people show up.
But could you spare a post on your blog for him?
I know someone out there thinks he’s worth it.<3
Book quote from The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
“Kev was like my brother – we would have done anything for each other.
We said that whoever died first, the other one had to wear a pink dress with green spots to the funeral – and we shook on it. It was mainly his idea and the more I think about it, I’m sure Kevin knew something was going to happen.
I looked for the exact dress but couldn’t find one anywhere.
I eventually picked up the green one in Primark and bought the pink pop socks to make it look even sillier. It’s what Kev would have wanted.
Kev told his whole family about the pact, so I couldn’t back out. I had a word with him at the graveside and asked if he liked the color – I’m sure I could hear laughter coming out of the ground.
Kev was a true hero and someone I’m proud to call my best mate.”
this is the manliest thing i’ve ever seen.
