Progeria : A tribute to John Tackett

Many of u may have heard of a disease called progeria which is briefly a premature aging. As a result, u can find a 10 year-old child looking physiologically like an 80 year-old person. Usually they die at the age of 15 maximum of cardiovascular diseases. The importance of this , is that the discovery of the etiology and characteristics of this disease, can be considered a big leap in the long researchers quest in figuring out the causes and the cure from cardiovascular disease and this will shed the light more on the processes of aging in general since it's becoming a big issue.
One of these guys is John Tackett who, despite all of his problems, was very happy and thankful for each second he was spending as if when something is rare, it becomes more valuable. He was also a very good drummer. He died exactly 2 years ago at the age of 15 but with a maturity of a 50 year-old guy. Anyway, this guy can be me, can be anyone, because life is short and we never have the time or the chance to do what we want to. We always run out of time.

Progeria Lyrics: Nobils Tobilis Music: Nobilis Tobilis

Life is too short, you don't notice
As years faded ephemerally
Try to escape you won't manage
Doomed to take part in this masquerade

We all fall like withered flowers
With fear and pain haunting our souls
There's nobody here to share your grief
Cherish your days Carry your burden

He spent his lifetime almost content
Although the odds were all against him
Spreading hope and happiness
A morbid fate, is this all he gets

It's so early to leave this world
And farewell this wonderful realm of mine
I've got so much more to show you all
What I am capable of

I'm ready for this bitter end
The moment where the drums will stop
To rhythm my o so perfect life
Mourn me this is what I demand

hey man is not counted by the days he lives but the achievements he makes and the quality of life he leads , who says we all aren't doomed by the same destiny , u never know if i'll be breathing on the next roundabout ...... life is what u make of it , if ur making most of it now , u'll enjoy everyday as if it's ur last then u'll benefit from every second of it and make maximum profit using ur current resources. don't think too much it can kill u hehheheh just kidding!

For the past year I have been finding more and more about progeria. I have also learned alot about John, and think he was an amazing guy and I wish I had the chance to meet him. I'm only 13 but i'm looking for information on progeria for speech, well i'm not sure what to say but thank you John, for inspiring me to help cure progeria in my future!
