There was a sixteen year old girl, that died of thyroid cancer Wednesday morning. I never knew her, or even met her. I barely watched her YouTube videos, and I only began to know of her a few weeks before she was gone. I just started watching her videos ( , they are so funny and creative, I'm glad she made them. She made such a big impact on so many lives, and I'm sorry I missed out on her. I am so, so sorry.

Why does life dish out world-suck like this? Esther was such a charming girl. A big nerdfighter, and an avid Harry Potter freak. The scariest thing about this is, her age. I just don't know what to do, when I found out about her death, I sat there and bawled my eyes out. I watch her videos and bawl my eyes out. Why did this happen? I want to do something about it, I want to donate to her family. I'm going to. Esther, you touched my life after yours ended. Thank you for your color, there will be no other like it.

I realize this is an old post, but I just have to say that I completely agree. I only just found out who Esther was yesterday, and went and watched some of her videos. She was so optimistic and cheerful. It is unfair that she had to leave, especially being so young, but I thank her for the videos she made. She's an inspiration to us all.

I think you're absolutely right.

I kind of think that life dishes out world suck so that we feel more motivated to reduce it. It sucks that Esther died, it really does. But if nothing bad ever happened, we'd have nothing to fight. It's easy to end up inside a community that is so great, and so filled with awesome that you forget that the point is to reduce world-suck everywhere. Sometimes suck has to happen inside nerdfighteria, so that we remember that it happens everywhere, all the time. It reminds us that we have to fight, because we aren't just nerds. We're nerdfighters.

She was sixteen....she has touched literally hundreds of lives, helped and inspired people to raise thousands of dollars for charity.
If she could do that while fighting cancer, why the hell haven't I done more?
