Yesterday Dana and Justin were told to come by the bus and pick up Macklemore to take him to the hospital. So Justin actually drove Macklemore around Burlington which I'm sure was a pretty epic experience in itself. They ended up surprising Sam and hanging out with him for about a half hour. Before yesterday I liked about five of Macklemore's songs but wasn't really a huge fan. Now he's one of my favorite people. Between visiting Sam and allowing Justin to drive him around so casually you can just tell that he's a great person.
|Sam and Macklemore!|
This whole experience just reminds me how special of a place Saint Michael's is. Upon hearing about Sam everyone wanted to do something to help out. Macklemore's finance said that they got lots of emails and messages from people saying they should visit so they knew that he must be a special person. After the show people who barely even know Sam were posting on Twitter and Facebook to show their support and give get well messages. There is so much love on this campus!
Even off campus there is support for Sam. His picture was on the front page of Reddit last night and Macklemore even wrote a post saying why he visited Sam, which is really moving as well.
Stay strong Sam!
