It's taken me all day to come to terms with the news of Clint Miller's passing. My thoughts and prayers have been with his family and the struggle that he went through with his battle with cancer.
Would it be a shock to learn that I never personally met Clint? To many on ActiveRain members, it wouldn't. They know full well how he could reach out from cyber space and make you feel his love and respect. I met him first through ActiveRain, then we connected on Twitter. If you never read his blog, I'd suggest you go there now. He had a way about with his writing that really drew you in.
In my on again, off again relationship with Twitter, it was Clint that showed me what you could really do with the platform. Just watching him with his Twitter account, @TheRealClint, I saw that it was far more than just spamming links at people. It was even more than responding to people. It was about making real relationships. Clint made it look easy. His last tweet, just a day before he died, was wishing a person that they have a great day. Clint was really a special person.
For those that think social media is a waste of time, all I have to say is that you weren't a social media friend of Clint's. I never met Clint personally. To be honest, I wasn't as close of an online friend to him as many of you were. Yet, when we did speak (usually through
Twitter), he still made me feel like I had his attention, that I was important to him, that I mattered. That's difficult for most to do in person. He could do that through a computer. That takes a really special person.
I hope that one day, I can be half as good as Clint was online (and I can only imagine his impact in person) at touching people's hearts. Clint, you will be missed and I am sure that you affected far more people than you could have ever imagined in your short time on earth, my friend.
