I was going through videos the other day and stopped by one of our most favorite vidmakers Biel and as I was watching one of her creations I was reading the sidebar description that she wrote and it made me a bit wistful and reflective… she says:
“When I started making this vid I selected some of my favorite Robert funny moments; but, I don’t know why, yesterday I decided to change the former song and keep up editing with Thinking About You (in my opinion, a devastatingly beautiful song about an impossible love and all the feelings that the loved one will never hear from our mouth). Then I unconsciously began to include other clips… the type of scenes that had caused me a sort of disturbing -even sad- feelings. The result is a video sometimes funny, sometimes bitter-sweet…”
And it got me thinking about this whole thing and how most of us will never meet you and will never really be able to share all the things you’ve done to and for us just by BEING. Both UC and I have heard countless stories from readers and friends and acquaintances and even have our own about how you and the Twilight series made their lives better if even just for a few short moments every day. And maybe I’m a gushy person but I think you should know those things. You should know that you have made a difference in people’s lives just by being.
And of course that snowballed into thinking about how that must make you feel. It seems like a bit of a burden and a job to know that you influence people and their lives that you’ve never even met. That people’s entire image of you is portrayed through the media and may never really know YOU. As Marty McFly would say: “Heavy.”
Now I’m sure you’ve probably never thought about this cause you’re a boy and you’re too busy smoking and reading whatever random novel Amazon sent you this week to care. And that’s probably a good thing, cause I’d need a Valium if people thought of me the way they think of you.
Keep on keepin’ on!

So what do YOU think? Has he/Twilight affected your life for the better? How do you think knowing all these stories would affect him? Should be know?
