Brandon’s Butterfly Effect

ChrysalisShe had called saddened by the state of her love life and she had called me because of the experience I have in relationships gone bad. At the end she thanked me for going through all the pain I had so that I could effectively understand her feelings.  Hmm, while I was happy to support a friend, the idea of crashing my love life to be a better listener and coach probably would never have been my first choice.  I suspect Brandon will feel the same way in 10 years when the pain in his life, through a variety of unplanned circumstance, will have gone a long ways to changing many lives for the better.

My friend, Dave Cooke, with a heart for humanity and more for his son set out to pedal a mile in his son’s moccasins as a means to understand the difficulities involved in overcoming the sons afflictions.  In fact he pedaled hundreds of miles over a hundred days. You can read the story here, it is inspiring.  www.100pedals.com   Dave blogged regularly on his experience in stepping up to the challenge and overcoming his own difficulties.  At the end of 100 days he had achieved the objective and I expect, surpassed his vision.
