In Memory of Brian O'Neill

I don't know the man that died on March 17th, but I feel like I do. I have read about Angie and Brian for some time now and the honesty with which Angie writes is heartbreakingly beautiful. Brian struggled with cancer for 11 years and lost the battle yesterday. Please visit Angie's blog Keep Believing for a beautiful and unbelievably inspirational account of their struggle at http://aboneill.blogspot.com/2009/03/1245-am-on-march-17-2009-brian-oneill.html.

In honor of him and his family, I am not going to post the silly post I had planned for today. I am, instead, going to be silent in honor of the O'Neill family, who I don't know at all, but touched my heart.
