We’ll Only Get The Afterglow

[Summer Fades To Fall – Faber Drive]

Last night I stayed up until 3 reading GivesMeHope on my phone. It was a liberating experience. If you like those inspirational stories on MyLifeIsAverage and if you’re sometimes weary of the misfortune on FMyLife and if, when you’re reading MyLifeIsG you think to yourself, “Oh for fuck’s sake I get that you’re happy stop crowing about it,” then this is a good site for you, because it doesn’t necessarily happen to the writer, but it’s guaranteed to jerk a few tears from feeling hearts.

This was one of my favorites, and it was also one of the highest ranking ones:

A little girl was dying of cancer and her younger brother had a match for the bone marrow she needed. The doctors told him it was a matter of life and death. After he had the surgery, he asked the doctors how long he had to live. He thought if he gave his bone marrow to let his sister live he would die but he did it anyway. GMH

On some level I guess it’s good that there’re these sites that sort of…document the good and the bad of life. But I hope that everyone can experience something worthy of a story on each of these sites themselves – yes, even FML, because how can you measure a perfect life when there was nothing bad to compare it to?

Alex.
