worldpool: “A tiny nation of people began to take shape.”

My disabled son’s amazing gaming life in the World of Warcraft

“While we are gathered here today, a candle is being lit for Mats in a classroom in the Netherlands, a candle burns in a call centre in Ireland, in a library in Sweden there is a candle lit, he is remembered in a little beauty parlour in Finland, a municipal office in Denmark, many places in England. All over Europe, Mats is remembered by many morethan those who had the opportunity to come here today.

“I met Mats in a world where it doesn’t matter a bit who you are, what kind of body you have, or how you look in reality, behind the keyboard.

“There, what does matter is who you choose to be and how you conduct yourself towards others. What does matter is what is found here,” – Kai Simon laid his hand on his temple, “and here.” Kai Simon laid his hand on his heart.

  1. So now I’m in tears after reading the story, so I guess that post was successful! What a touching and amazing story. You know I’m not a gamer and have always not really understood about the why and how of it, but this was a truly amazing story.
