I found this kid last night on YouTube named Ben Breedlove...and honestly his story changed my life. It had me thinking about the friends I have, the people who we all claim to mean so much to us, the stories and memories we share...I clearly remember being on stage with two of my closest friends in Nashville, we were so proud of each other that night. Austin told me that our friendship had never been greater, and that we would never forget this moment right here in front of thousands. We became brothers. I thought about my best friend, chase, who lives practically next door. I started to think, what if today was my last day...have I really spent enough time with him, even just chillin playing video games or rating girls on facebook. Would my best friend be proud of who I was, or wish I had been there when he needed me the most? We live our lives so selfishly, not worrying about others, and only caring for ourselves...but what happens when we go? I've never been so sad about something before. Flashes of every friend in my life have been passing in and out of my head since I watched Ben's final video. I wanted to call Austin, and Dylan, and Chase and everyone I knew and tell them I love them like the brothers they are to me. All the people who've hurt me or I've hurt, all the times I've passed up going out with friends to work on my career..I wanted to take them back. Life is too short to let it slip through your fingers.. I don't care if it's not the tough guy thing to do to cry over something like this, most guys would say to man-up, but the people I know, the friends I have, the family I love mean more to me than you could ever imagine. Ben has now become not only one of my inspirations...but my HERO. See you one day buddy, wish I could've met you just to tell you how much you've changed me. -21
