Since MSNBC seems to have shoved it down the memory hole, here is the video of John Green’s interview on the Today show, where he gives the most poignant quote I think I’ve ever heard.
When I realized it was a ten-minute piece, I intended to cut it down to the relevant portions around the Quote of the Year. After I saw it though, I realized that would have been pure Blasphemy.
If you can’t watch the whole thing, the quote is at about 9:30 into the video, but I do encourage you to watch it all. I do warn you, it’s a tear-jerker – this man’s heart-rending pain is plainly evident, and purely honest.
Our hearts go out to you and your family, Mr. Green. I don’t have the words.
(h/t to Linoge at Walls of the City for the Youtube location of the video. It’s now saved to my hard drive, so that it will NOT disappear again. I hope others have done the same.)
