I just got done watching the video below, and I have to say that I feel like the most superficial person in the world. I would imagine many of you have heard the story of Brenden Foster, but for those of you have not, I will briefly summarize. He is an 11 year old boy who died of leukemia last Friday. Instead of doing the Make A Wish thing or asking for something for himself, he did something for the world. Given two weeks to live, Brenden said that he wanted to feed the homeless. Well, people all over the country have done just that. With Thanksgiving here approaching, and the economy in shatters, this boy who was dying didn't think of himself but the people he considered less fortunate than himself. That is inspiration. It also makes everything else going on in the world of celebrity meaningless. Paris Hilton seems pretty insignificant after viewing this and reading about what this boy did.
Below is a video from ABC News and if you click here, you can read and watch more video from one of the local Seattle stations which is where Brenden lived.
