Happy Esther Day! Love, LeakyCon

If you have read/seen/heard of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green you’ll know the story of a 16 year old girl with cancer. There was a real girl who inspired that story and her name was Esther. But Esther’s story is entirely different from Hazel-Grace’s. Esther was an amazing person who used the power of Fandom and online community to spread her never-ending optimism and enthusiasm for life and love without shame. Esther not only inspired an author to pen an award winning story, but also an entire community of creators and youth.

As Esther’s health ailed, Vlogbrothers John & Hank Green asked Esther what they could do for her birthday. The wise 16 year old didn’t ask for anything extravagant, but asked rather that they take the time to say ‘I love you’ to their friends and family. Since Esther passed away in 2010, Esther Day has continued on her birthday, August 3, and grown exponentially.

Year round, Esther’s legacy is remembered through the charitable foundation This Star Won’t Go Out, but once a year we take a day to show our gratitude to all those in our life who make us better people.

So this is me, saying to you, that if you are someone in my life who has greeted me with a smile, given me a hug in time of need, listened to my stories, laughed at my stupid jokes, put up with the bad times as much as the good; if you are someone I talk to daily, or once a year, if our lives have moved on or if I’ve only recently met you if you live close or far away; if you are any of these things: I love you.
Pass on the love to your own friends and family. Thank you Esther, the world misses you.

Rest in Awesome.

These two are fed up with how women are portrayed in country music videos… and do some role reversal
