4 comments on “R.I.P. STUART SCOTT

  1. I love this post. Thanks for sharing. I’m not sure if you’re the same, but it’s hard for me to discuss such personal topics publicly. Thoughts on the Eagles and sports, sure, but it’s different when you’re talking about your heart. Your hopes and dreams. Your heroes.

    Stuart Scott’s passing has me so sad, but I can’t put my finger on why. But much of what you said resonates with me. He was who he was and made no apologies. He wasn’t boistrous. He didn’t shove it down your throat. But it’s who he was. And he knew he had the knowledge and talent to back it up. If that isn’t a lesson for us all…

    My heart breaks that this world has lost another good light to this awful disease. For those daughters he so loved. I know he’s in a better place and he has helped redefine what fighting cancer means. But today, I’m just selfishly sad for us.

    • That’s exactly how I feel: selfish. I never met the man and still there’s a part of me that feels actual (not just remote), grief over his passing. And I feel as if I don’t have the right to feel that way. Like I’m butting in.


    • I almost didn’t write it. I didn’t want people saying I was “using it”. But I just couldn’t let his impact on me PERSONALLY, go unspoken for. It would have seemed like ingratitude.
