A quest to see the world for what it is

Let me tell you about Laurens. He’s a young Dutch guy with a fresh family and I know him because he also plays the game World of Warcraft. He became a member of our guild for a while and we had the opportunity to get to know him through Discord. He is an intelligent young man, with a great sense of humor and he also carries the ADHD label so he’s very energetic. He is running hard so he can stay ahead of the rest of us at all times. Just because he can, not so much because he feels he needs to stay ahead. Sometimes he can be annoying as fuck because he loves to talk. A lot. Because of this there are people who find him annoying. Personally I don’t mind the talking because the things he talks about vary from very informative useful information to general chat, to sharp funny remarks, to playing with words and just making funny sounds. The only time when I ever found him annoying is when he’s in a “Don’t Care” mood.
Laurens saw the video about my colorblindness that I also posted in my previous post, and decided to start some sort of fund raising project to bring in money for a pair of glasses that will allow a colorblind person to see the world how everybody else sees it. I was really surprised by this because it is the nicest thing a random person that I have met through the internet has ever done for me. It might actually be the nicest thing anybody has ever done for me! Check it out here. Now at first I was touched by the fact that Laurens did this for me. But when I saw that other people that I know from our guild actually donated money I was kinda flabbergasted and it made me feel a bit emotional. I didn’t cry of course because me manly man very manly, but it did touch me and it felt good. To me this proves once again that the World of Warcraft community is the best community out there. Great things can be done and achieved within this virtual realm that we can’t grasp that has the power to bring people together and share and interact and love one and other. Life can be good. Praise the internet hallelujah.
