I can't believe I'm making a post of a friend and brother from another mother @stevenalexander, to express shock instead of happiness. This is really not among my favorite kind of posts.
I still wish it was a dream and some sort of nightmare that I could easily shove aside. As many people would have noticed, I have been away for some time now due to the volunteer assignment I went for inside the rural areas of my country. I mentioned that in ANNOUNCEMENT POST .
I got back last night with joy of the wonderful experience I and others have had in assisting people in the rural areas for some weeks. Unknown to me however, such joy would be short-lived by the time I come online.
The news came first when I decided to check my mentions on busy.org. I saw a mention from @thealliance group among other mentions, I opened it and saw what I never imagined not expected. The news of the death of @stevenalexander was not even among the weirdest dreams I've been having recently.
I was planning to have a Skype interview with @stevenalexander before I traveled to the rural area with no good internet. He informed me of his trip to Mexico and how we could have the interview ones he gets settled down there since he would be there for about a month.
My WhatsApp chat with Steve.
My last WhatsApp chat with him before I traveled.
To people that have had some good interactions with @stevenalexander, they will relate how much of a great guy he IS, (.I can't imagine using WAS for him) despite the challenges he battled. He loved his Music 🎶 so much and was still very hardworking in other projects. I even had a chat with him about a certain RUN2PLAY project he was part of, and how much that could affect people's lives positively when it comes to fruition.
He believed and had passion for this.
I still wish I was not making this post reminiscing on the good moments I shared with @stevenalexander because of the painful reality that such moments will only be a memory. I had planned on sharing some amazing things I experienced from my volunteer ,journey but I'm willing to sacrifice that and many other things if only @stevenalexander would come back alive with his cheerfulness.
I had made the videos below to show when we were leaving the area I traveled to as well as when we got to our destination late at night.

I know how much a great and promising musician @stevenalexander is, but because my heart is broken, I will sign off this post with a song that will always remind me of great friends and family I've lost.
My thoughts are filled with lots of memories and anxiety. I wish I had some super powers now.
All the Steem earned from this post, will go to @youarehope foundation ( a global assistance organisation @stevenalexander and I believe in their project)

Dear @stevenalexander (Steven Steen Alexander), I wish you could Unbreak My Heart. I will miss you.
