How Todd and I Wound up Crying at 11:36PM

We watched the MTV Music awards on TIVO, whizzing through the whole thing. Only stopping for Pink, Alicia Keys, and then Taylor Swift at the end singing her bubble gum new single, We’re Never Getting Back Together.

And then HT says to me, “How old is Taylor Swift? Is she 25 yet?”

And I’m all, “Hell no. She’s younger than that.”

And then I went to the computer to do my fact checking, and stumbled upon the following video. Taylor Swift wrote this song, inspired by the blog of a mother who lost her beautiful four year old boy to cancer.

FYI, Taylor Swift is just 22.

    Played this for ‘Gela and had me churned up again – I’m an emotional person but not normally given to being so moved by songs or films

    It’s too beautiful and too sad.

    I saw this too. So incredibly sad.

    I was sent the link to another mom’s blog and story that is equally gut wrenching. Justin Beiber met with the sister of the 12 year old boy who died in a tragic accident. The blog is called “An Inch Of Gray” and the mom is a very gifted writer.
