People who change the world

There are people who change your life and you don’t even know it. You’ve never met them, you’ve never even been in their proximity, but somehow their life influenced yours in a way that they didn’t predict and most importantly you didn’t predict. I’ve never met Steve Job and the closest I’ve been to him was watching the Stanford commencement speech on YouTube many, many, many times in awe. Yet today at the news of his death, I felt this terrible sadness as if I had lost someone dear to me. I read the news on my MacBook, while talking on my iPhone…and somehow he was and will be part of my life. Somehow I felt sad for the loss of a man I never knew, who never knew me yet who was part of my life and had me as part of his.
