I'm really glad that you realize that you are part of a legacy. Because Stand By Me always meant so much to me when I was younger. Your character in that film meant so much to me in my life because I too had my older sibling die when I was 12. And that heartache they showed in the film with the whole family hit home so bad. and it was just so haunting. I watched this film with her when I was little and I've continued to watch it again and again growing up. It's one of those movies that when I see it on cable even though I own it on vhs and dvd (and will own the blu ray) I have to watch it. Because it's funny and its heartbreaking and it makes you feel better. It makes you feel. But I completely understand about the loss hitting you years later. There's this book by Rob Sheffield called "Love is a Mixtape" where he talks about losing his wife and he has this perfect part where he's describing the loss and he says "the loss just gets bigger the longer you look at it". So sometimes when it happens and you don't feel connected it doesn't hurt as bad. and then one day you can really look at it, or have it shown to you and it's like it just happened. Thanks for writing Wil.

I'm sorry but I in NO WAY thought you came off like that. When I read it I saw it as you getting offended by this person saying that you haven't done anything to advocate. That's the way I took what they were saying and I would have gotten angry also. I'm glad you explained it so everyone else can get your side because I hate people thinking you're a jerk. Sometimes you have to go HULK SMASH. i do it every day! haha.
