    Truly amazing how inspirational he chose to be understanding what his fate was. He made a lasting impression in his short life and should a be model for  all on how to live life.

    I wanted to correct the spelling of his name... ( sorry, sam ) my name gets mis-spelled all the time too.  Oh well. 

    Thanks to Bob Kraft and Sam Berns (with an e) for reminding us that  a lot of really interesting people come in all shapes and appearances... and just need to be appreciated in general but also for their uniqueness and their perspective .

    Re: sam burns thread

    I was at a Progeria Research Foundation fundraiser event on the North Shore a while back and Sam spoke in person at the event -- not so much as an emcee but rather that he made his way around the room speaking to groups of people.  He was as articulate and gifted as any speaker as I've ever seen.  Never once did he say anything that could be construed as feeling sorry for himself.  It was always about how he was just trying to live his live and make a difference with the limited time he knew he had. I've never seen anyone have a perspective like that boy had.   

    I was on the train to work the other day while live streaming the radio on my phone and I started weeping when I heard that he passed away.  Not ashamed to admit that.  I am sure Sam would have told me not to weep but to do something to help someone out instead of  shedding tears for him.

    Thanks for sharing those thoughts...  Trying to remember all the things he did.  Was he in the booth for a game doing commentary...?  Have to look it up.  Totally relate to wht you are saying about the kids spirit and his personality.  Truly amazing and you're not the only one shedding a tear or 2. 

    Sam was  a big Bruins fan as well and he was in the booth for a visit with Dale arnold during a game this year.

    Chara was buds with him too. Sad story.. i think using sam as our "12th man" is probably what is happening.

    it is like MHK year. someone close to the boss has passed.

    Win it for the kid boys
