Jon Blais (August 30, 1971 – May 27, 2007), also known as Blazeman. He was diagnosed with ALS and this is his moment of trump and inspiration… This is inspiration at it’s best…

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for. It doesn’t interest me how old you are, I want to know if you’ll risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. I want to know if you can live with failure, both yours and mine and still shout at the edges of a lake, river or mountain, ‘Yes, I am a warrior poet’. It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have, I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what need to be done for someone you love. Live more than your neighbors. Unleash yourself upon the world and go places, go now. Giggle, no, laugh and bark at the moon like the wild dog that you are. Understand that this is not a dress rehearsal, this is it, your life. Face your fears and live your dreams. Take it all in, yes, every chance you get, come close. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and truly like the company you keep in the empty moments of your life and still remember me, your friend, the BlazeMan, ALS Warrior Poet.”
