The courage of a young LEGO fan
A young LEGO fan just passed away. His journey had touched the lives of thousands.
We tend to think of LEGO as just a toy or a hobby... something to do... something to collect... But for some it is a lifeline to a kinder world. With their bright colors and logical structure LEGO makes more sense then the reality they have to face every day and the fightening future ahead of them.
It is actually quite amazing how many children (and likely adults too - although we don't hear of them as much) use LEGO as a creative medium all the way to the end.
You can read Mitchell's story here, written by a LEGO fan who was deeply touched by his journey: http://thebrickblogger.com/2013/03/remembering-lego-fan-mitchell-jones/
I definitely appreciate just the simple ability to snap my LEGO bricks together more since learning about Mitch...

Incredibly sad story. I'm glad that LEGO was there to inspire and be a companion to him, even in his last hours.
I believe many of us, including myself, often take the simple plastic brick for granted.
