    A friend of mine shared this video on Facebook and I have watched it a dozen times, just this morning.  I had no idea who Shane was, but in watching this video I have done a little research and discovered that Shane Koyczan is remarkable.  Watch this  video.  It is important, it is beautiful, and it matters.  Everyone should see it, share it, understand it, and learn from it.

    Dating can be scary. Dating in a foreign country can be petrifying.
