Jesus.

I was managing to keep it together until the end, but but yeah the last line broke me.

Like everyone else I've done great and also horrible things, but I'm trying to get better in general.

For a while I think I will try extra hard.

Thank you, Steel. We miss you.

Also thank you, Steve.

That’s right, you have the young gaming with the old(er), white people gaming with black people, men and women, Asian countries gaming with the EU, North Americans gaming with South Americans. Much like world sporting events like the Wolrd Cup, or the Olympics will bring together different nations in friendly competition, (note the recent Asian Cup; Iraq vs. Saudi Arabia, no violence there) we come together. The differences being, we are not divided by our nationalities and we do it 24-7, and on a personal level.

We are a community without borders and without colours, the spirit and diversity of the gaming community is one that should be looked up to, a spirit and diversity other groups should strive toward.

is it wrong to think that to some extent, people like steel exist to teach the rest of us lessons about ourselves and our lives and humanity? people like steel are here as an inspiration to others more than they are here on this earth for themselves? i am so very sad steel has gone. i feel like he had so much more to teach the world. people often lament the dead by commenting on how far that person might have gone, but i have very little doubt in my mind that he would have gone much farther in life than the rest of us.

i feel like we are all white noise without people like him. i'm glad that his last message was to try and inspire others to be a little more great.

Beautiful. Everything about that was just beautiful.. I take all that was said and will try to live by it. Everything there is pretty much 100% true, I wish I'd known the guy in person, he seems like the type that could always cheer you up, the person you could go for advice knowing he'd be 100% sincere.

R.I.P man. You had such a great life to look forward to.

Wow... Man, that was beautiful ;_; I will live by those words. Steel was amazing and I'm so glad that we got to read that. Thank you Steve! I want everyone in the world to read and live by Steel's message... God, I didn't ever meet him but I can definitely say I love that guy. I have never been so inspired yet upset. Steel, please rest in peace knowing that your influence has been so great on so many people.

Wow, what a beautiful message... I've felt a lack of motivation during the last week or so, but this letter has certainly helped me back on track. Thank you so much for posting that, it feels good to know that steel is still making an impact on people's lives. I'll save the letter myself, and definitely do my best to live by these words.

Christ. 

I've been gone for a bit and just found out about all of this.

Words have very rarely moved and inspired me in the way his letter just did.  I really don't know what else to say. 
For every moment of triumph, for every instance of beauty, many souls must be trampled.

I've always felt a bit sad at his passing, because we've all been here together for several years now, but it wasn't until I read that that I'm really having to hold back tears. That was beautiful, Steel Paladine.
