Remember Aaron Swartz


Memory of Aaron

Dear family and friends of Aaron,

I didn’t know him until this sad event,

I have learned a lot about him since then,

And in a memorial of my own,

I have retraced his thoughts and aspirations,

If only from the web, the sphere that he so loved,

I look at his pictures and see,

that sincere, open, loving quality and strength of spirit,

Which only the pure of heart and lovers of humanity have,

I now, know your dear Aaron in my soul and spirit, even if only in heartfelt imagination,

I feel love for your dear one, and know your sorrow,

… yet those who have moved on are always with us,

May you be blessed, and love and healing flow into your life,
