I just became addicted to a TV show called Touch. It is about a child who can only communicate through numbers but when his father follows them his interactions cause chain reactions across the world (Butterfly Effect). I'll paste a quote from the show (Jake, the boy, narrates) that really resonated with me:
"If two points are
destined to touch the universe will always find a way to make the connection.
Even when all hope seems lost certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we
are and who we become across space, across time, along paths we cannot predict.
Nature always finds a way."
I feel that Celiac brought me to this Forum because I was meant to meet all the wonderful friends I've made here. I was in a new state, didn't know anyone and was a shut-in until recently. The Forum saved my sanity.
Ever since my near death experience I've felt a need for a purpose. A way to help others. Be it tutoring for free or saying a kind word to a stranger. The ripple effect is amazing. If you've missed the first season and this season's already aired episodes you can get them on Hulu.
I think the show can give us hope at the times we need it most.
