    5,000 sing Zach Sobiech's 'Clouds' in his memory at Mall of America

    Video.....Absolutely glorious!

    Zach's mother, Laura Sobiech of Lakeland, wiped tears from her eyes.

    "It was incredibly moving, and it was such a fitting tribute to Zach and his song and his legacy," she said.

    His father, Rob Sobiech, said the huge crowd showed "the kind of community we live in here in Minnesota."

    "Everybody came together, and it was for Zach, and it was for everyone in the room, and it was for other kids who have cancer," he said.

    The event was organized by the KS95 for Kids Radiothon, which started Thursday. The two-day annual radiothon, a benefit for the Children's Cancer Research Fund and Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare, has raised more than $12 million since it was started in 1999.

    Sobiech, who died of a rare form of bone cancer in May at age 18, got his first big break during the radiothon last year.

    The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington

    Ah, how wonderful...I heard the angels singing there, along with so many folks singing Zach's song, and may all of them be blessed and have a tad more courage, a tad more hope, a bit more strength to keep fighting whatever their own battle is...and to win.

    Zach is, indeed, 'up, up, up' where the view's a little nicer...and is grinning in joy...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
