On the TV news the other day was a poignant story and video about a bald boy in a hospital bed getting his dream come true -- a visit by Rachel Platten and the opportunity to sing her "Fight Song" along with her. The song was a personal favorite of his. In fact it was Jeremiah Succar's theme song in his fight against cancer. Get out your handkerchief before watching the video.
[OK. Take a moment before going forward.]
Then on the TV the last night Hillary Clinton came along with a passel of women bopping and rocking to the same song. Watch that one here. What a disaster.
It almost seemed like an episode of "Some people can ruin anything."
On the other hand, maybe there's a common theme. When all indicators say you're about to lose an important battle, this song might provide a little bit of solace and encourage others to support you even if they think you're a goner.
But to Jeremiah Succar, all the best to you kid. All the best.
