Matt-Speak: A Time for Mourning


If you will notice on the left column of this blog, you will see a list of my favorite links. One such is "Matt-Speak." Matt is one of the very first people to visit my blog (which is coming up on it's first anniversary on April 5th) and comment. I appreciated it and he kept coming back. He is a very profound commentator on politics, religion and whatever crosses his mind. But, people visit his popular blog due to his common sense approach to life. I respect him greatly.

Sometime in February, Matt lost his brother, Duane, who was only one year young than Matt. Duane's death was very unexpected. Matt has not made a post since February 15th as he and his family try to cope with this tragedy. I just wanted to make mention of this on my blog. I don't visit his blog as I did so regularly at the start of mine due to many different reasons. But, whenever I want to get a straight forward approach to political events, I know I can go to his blog. Matt-Speak is an extremely popular blog and I encourage everyone to visit whenever Matt comes back on a regular basis.

Why am I mentioning this almost two months after the loss of his brother? I am making it out of guilt, I suppose. I should have done it immediately after he made a post about the loss of his brother. Plus, I know how painful it is to lose a sibling. I lost my baby sister back in 1989 when she was just 25 years old. She had been married for only six months. It is like a part of you that aches and aches. They say time heals all wounds. I disagree. Losing your sister, or in Matt's case, his brother, is something from which you never really recover. The pain dulls somewhat over the years. But, the heartache is always with you.

God Bless you and your family, Matt. Come back when you can.

Hello...there should be no guilt. It is now that counts..I am sure that Matt is more than appreciative of your now gesture.

I am sorry for his loss...to lose anyone is a hardship and when they are younger..it is almost inconceivable.

My thoughts are with him and his family..anyone for that matter that suffers loss.
You are a loyal friend and your thoughts are commendable.

~D~

Matt is a good guy. This gesture is quite kind, and I'm sure he appreciates it.
I, too, look forward to his return.

Dorothy, Matt is a truly nice guy. I mean, I have never met him in person. But, I believe personality can transcend the media in which we meet on the internet. I hope he comes back soon.

Da Old Man, agree with on all counts concerning Matt. A truly nice guy.
