I came across an article about a teenager, Zach Sobiech, and his journey through the last months of his life. It is sobering... humbling... to listen about his perspective about dying and living. His mom suggested that when he received the terminal diagnosis, that he should write letters. Instead, he began writing songs, one of which "Clouds" hit number 1 on itunes. He recently passed and the a youtube video "My Last Days: Meet Zach Sobiech" has gone viral. I recommend you watch in (warning: You WILL need tissues). So inspiring.
