154-155: Joplin

Day 154:

Yesterday I found my diary from when I was 10 years old in the garage.  Looking back at it now...I was a goofy kid with awful handwriting.  The stuff that I could actually read was hilarious. None of it was really even important enough to be considered worthy of being written down in a diary.

My mom has really pretty handwriting, so she wrote the Dear Diary seen in this photograph.

Day 155:

We got a kitten today...don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet.  It's name is Joplin after Joplin, Missouri; in honor of Will Norton; an 18 year old who was popular on YouTube. Sadly he died because of the tornado that hit Joplin.

I've watched a few of his videos.  I didn't know about him until he passed away.  They are really good.  He was funny.  Everytime I watch one though I start crying....I wish I could have known him, seems like he was really awesome (cute too! :) )

Here is one of his videos; in this episode Will shows you how to get ready for a date:

R.I.P Will Norton, you are missed!

Even while being held onto by his dad and wearing his seat belt...Will was sucked out of his sun roof on the way home from his high school graduation ...good thing is he was quoting the Bible as this was happening.  I have no doubt that he is with Jesus now.
