What Just Happened? His Kind of Courage

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, December 20, 2011

“I don’t think I’ll ever be the same.” That was my last comment on this site a week ago following my trip to New York. I was privileged to attend three of David’s My Kind of Christmas concerts there. What happened on that stage and the shows preceding, you have all witnessed. A new confidence in his demeanor, a new intensity in his emotional connection to the songs. The clarity and brilliance of his voice was as flawless as a peerless diamond.

I didn’t attend any VIPs this time.  I thought I would leave those spots for others who had never met him. But on leaving the Irving venue he greeted me and extended his hand in a warm handshake and held my gaze for a while as I told him, “That was an amazing performance.” He continued to shake my hand firmly while he replied, “Thank you so very much.” I could tell by the sincerity in his voice and expression that he really meant it. I watched him make his way to the bus, stopping to sign autographs and take pics with teary-eyed children who had waited over an hour in the cold and almost given up hope that he would come out. He got on the bus and a guy who was standing nearby the venue watching all the commotion yelled out, “Who the f*** are you?!”  I turned to him calmly smiling and said, I think almost reverently, “That, is David Archuleta.” This loud, apparently inebriated young man looked at me for a second and quietly walked away. The bus with David soon drove away too. I have thought of that moment and how we watched him go, knowing we had not seen the last of him. Nor would that stranger on a sidewalk in New York see or hear the last of one David Archuleta.

Last night at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, David announced he is going to serve a full two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, of which I too am a member. I know from the above video and the young man I have come to know in part these past four years that he did not make this decision lightly. As proud of him as I’ve always been, I was never so proud of him in my life as I am right now. The courage it took to make this choice, to walk away from a  life-long dream he once thought he had lost forever is, I don’t know…I will never know that kind of courage.

There are people who come into our lives for a reason and stay forever. No tour bus, not even time can long separate what God has joined. I have long believed that in my life I was destined somehow, with all of you, to love and support this very special young man.  I made a promise to him on a bookmark I made and gave him 3 years ago.  It said,  “My gift to you is my undying loyalty, love, respect, and support for as long as I live.  I will always Stand By You.”  That is what I intend to do, with this site, with my fellow admins, with whoever is willing to do the same. We will be right here waiting, till that bus comes into view again.
