BE THE SPARK
I had a dream one night. A spark. And this is what followed.
This short video outlines our son's fight to live. It also puts forth boldly the idea that sparks can be powerful, but it's what we do with those sparks that matters in the end. A flame without fuel, a desire without doing, a belief without action ... means nothing.
Mitchell's Journey has served as a human spark … awakening in tens of thousands of people across the world a renewed commitment to faith, family and humanity. This was something we never anticipated. In fact, the overwhelming majority of followers are not afflicted with any disability at all - suggesting there are often more than broken bodies that need mending. On some level we are all broken. And perhaps through Mitchell’s Journey people are finding meaning and purpose with their own struggles.
Mitchell’s Journey has also become a beacon for Muscular Dystrophy awareness. And while there are miles to go and mountains to climb in the fight against this fatal disease, Mitchell's voice and story are being sounded from the mountaintops ... and people are listening. What's more, people are doing something about it.
Wherever you are, whatever you do, be the spark. Be a beacon for love and goodness. Be a force for action. Our sincere hope is that all who have been touched by Mitchell's Journey will not only feel the spark, but do something about it ... to join the fight against DMD and to find a cure. Because life and love are worth fighting for.
I would do anything ... anything ... to have my son back with me.
I fight for life. I fight for love.
