Zach Sobiech: Reminder of a Good Life

Zach Sobiech: Reminder of a Good Life


We need reminders to get some perspective on life. We are fragile, and we need help to remember what matters.

I cried watching Zach’s story because one cannot help to feel a sense of loss when realizing that a person with Zach’s philosophy and gift for giving is no longer with us.

I cried because I was reminded of how weak I am and that the things that I care about the most are already close to me, and I take them for granted frequently.

I cried because it reminded me that I shouldn’t complain about the cards I was dealt, but rather, like Zach, follow Viktor Frankl’s philosophy:

“Man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”

The way we do this, like Zach’s sister Alli puts it, is by believing “Things are OK when you believe in something greater than yourself in the world.”
