I was writing a thank you to KI for a very kind thing they did for me. When I was writing the email I got a little sappy and mentioned some cases where Wizard has helped me or friends of mine through tough times.
When I got a call that my brother had been in a life threatening car accident there was nothing I could do. But my friends gave me a lot of comfort and helped me get through the worry. In time he made a full recovery against all the odds and is walking and working again. (he's a rocket scientist :)
When my mom died of cancer my friends were there to help me through it. That's not to say my IRL family and friends didn't help--they did a lot. But it was a real comfort to have an expanded circle of friends who wanted to know how things were and were willing to talk or not talk about things depending on my mood when I had time to play Wizard.
I could go on and on but I found a lot of understanding and kindness from friends on Wizard101. Have you?
Post a comment with your story as a thank-you to Wizard101 staff that work so hard to make the game a true community.
See you on the game,
