In our modern world in which rudeness is a way of life for many uneducated people, many of you might say that internet relationships don t matter and that friendships don t exist on the computer…I don t agree.
When you talk to a person on the net, no matter if you are nice or not, you are talking to a REAL person. When you are hurting through disgraceful and rude words, you are actually hurting some real feelings.
I have developed, through the years, besides my real life friendships, some friendships through the net. I also had the chance to talk to several of them cyber friends on the phone. I was even lucky to meet a fellow blogger who travelled 350 kms to meet me.
Kasey Jay of Pontiac was one of those dear internet friends. We both shared a common dream of success in the hip hop business and i did anything to help promote Kasey Jay s Flosse Wear, the best I could.
Not only did we share our dreams and hopes, Kasey also had this genuine passion for rap music in common with me.
Like me, he knew what it meant to come from a hostile environment and to keep grinding, having been raised by a single mom in the ghetto. Kasey was one of those young entrepreneurs that is very much needed in America. He was a model of courage and hard work to me.
At only 28, he had to die. The circumstances of his death are still unclear.
Dear Kasey, thanks for being a friend and a confident for a little while. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me on the Detroit scene. You will always have a special place in my heart. I will never forget you.
I will bring a symbolical rose to you today made of scented thoughts that represent the respect and friendship i had for you.
Your friend always and ever,
More about Kasey Jay can be found on his my space account and on my personal website.
