I mentioned before that I went to The New School and when I was there I made a friend named Will.
Will was an institution. He was one of those guys that was so positive and good. It was honor to know him and an honor to call him friend.
Will unfortunately passed on due to complications to an injury. I spent the past day thinking about him and thinking about our conversations, and I really just miss the guy. I missed the dude after graduation, and I’m ashamed that I didn’t visit as much as I should have.
I wish I could talk to him again. Just a hey how are you doing, I want to hear him talk about his son again, or give me advice on girls, anything I don’t give a shit; I just want my friend back.
Us New Schoolers call ourselves a community. Even though we’re fractured, and we have different opinions, and come from different places we’re all proud that we were there. Will was the one man that made us a community. We loved him.
It sounds weird and strange, but its a comfort knowing that there are literally several thousand people that’s feeling the same loss as I am.
The clip is from a student radio interview with Will. I love this clip because this is Will, and it was exactly how he was.
I hope he could teach you and you can take something away from it.
Please keep Will’s son in your thoughts. He’s a young kid and it’s tough to lose someone so close to you so close to the holidays.
