Annie sent me this picture. I have no words for this– it’s just amazing! Can I just say just how stupidly honored I am? :D
I got a tattoo on my foot(My first and only tattoo), based on your song. :) I wanted to tell you how touched I was by not only the song but the message behind it.
I got this tattoo because when I was younger I was made fun of a lot for being different then other because I had Leukemia when I was an infant and the chemo that saved my life also effected how my brain developed. In a nutshell, I have a lot of organization and memory problems, so even though intellectually I am very smart, it didn’t seem that way to others: they thought I was stupid (just like a certain delivery pony).
It took many years for doctors and others to understand what was going on and longer to accept it myself. I went through years of thinking I was “stupid, strange, lame”, to quote the song, to realize what made me different made me special and wasn’t something to be ashamed about. So I got a tattoo to commemorate me not being afraid of being different anymore.
In fact it’s Great!
