R.I.P Steve Jobs

Death is hard to deal with no matter who it is. Whether it's someone really close to you, or someone you just know of. Either way, as humans, we are compelled to feel sadness and sympathy whenever we hear about someone's sad passing.

Yesterday a true visionary in the world of technology sadly passed away after struggling to fight against pancreatic cancer. At the age of 56, Steve Jobs sadly passed away after changing the world with how we think about technology. As the C.E.O of 'Apple', he helped people around the world open their eyes to the way that we see technology and think about what is possible for the future.

The only thing that I own that is 'Apple' related is an iPod Touch. Even though most of us think that iPods are just regular everyday objects now, if we went back 20 years, there was nothing like that in the world at all. I find it hard to believe that only a couple of decades ago, people weren't even dreaming that technology like this could ever exist. However, it only takes one person with an idea to change this. That man was Steve Jobs. And no matter how long 'Apple' lasts for, whenever I think of technology now, the only person that I can think of is Steve Jobs. For he was that man that was brave enough to keep on pushing through when people told him that his ideas would never work. But that's the point in dreaming isn't it? You keep going when people tell you that you will never make it, and you don't stop until you reach your goal.

R.I.P Steve Jobs, and thank you for showing us to never give up on our dreams.
