This has got to be one of the saddest songs I have ever heard.



The new song by Taylor Swift, "Ronan".



It's about a little boy who's name is Ronan Thompson. He passed away a few days shy of his fourth birthday from Stage 4 neuroblastoma.

In March we lost a little guy on SO's side of the family. He had just turned two years old. He had a rare blood form of cancer that caused tumors in his brain that eventually spread throughout his spine. He suffered for 7 months, surgery, radiation, etc. before passing away in his home. I went to see him the last day. That poor baby, I couldn't bare to look at him. The picture of him will forever be in my head. I so badly want to give his mother this song, I know she would feel connected to it. It's such a powerful and amazing song. It took so much courage to sing that. I know I can't even bare listening. It sends tears straight to my eyes.



I don't know what I would do if I ever had to go through something like this with my child. I just know that these families with sick children, sick anyone for that matter, are some of the strongest people I have ever seen. In those 7 months of the two year olds life, I never once saw her break down. The day he passed, she bathed him, and held him, that's all she did. I could never in my life be as strong as that woman. I would have never made it.



I'm sorry for all of this. Just seeing that story, hearing the song, brought back a lot. It made me think. <3.
