Mattie Stepanek, a 13-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy, passed today. He was a poet (and a peacemaker) and often appeared on Oprah and Larry King. His books are absolutely beautiful. He wrote of the beauty of Heaven, and now he's getting to see it. I know this has nothing to do with music, but I wanted to share my sorrow (and joy for his homegoing) with you all.

He seemed wise beyond his years...also such an optomist through his own adversity and hardship...God Bless his soul.

I am very saddened by Mattie's passing. His poetry was a gift he shared from his soul. We should all take a lesson from him.
