Touching Lives in 140 characters or less

Today has been a quiet day on Twitter, at least for a group of Tweeps I, @warriorblue, am privileged to call friends @spacetrucker @babykk09 @kritner @Asimov7 @sherriwilson @lilbughi. Someone who had only recently become a friend to most of us, @BamaRock28 passed away last weekend and we are missing him.

While some of the group have met each other, I had never met @BamaRock28 in person or even heard his voice. It seems strange that you can miss the presence of someone who you have never laid eyes on, but I suppose this is the new reality of life. You can now touch people's lives in 140 characters or less.

@BamaRock 28 - Peace to you, my friend.


  1. Yeah. I actually have cried for his loss, and I didn't get to meet him either.

  2. @warriorblue, Thanks for posting this. I have read it several times. Sometimes people online can be as good a friend as those who live near us. I hope that we all value true friendship when we find it.
