Nothing very much.
Twenty seven seconds.
It took twenty seven seconds of singing Happy Birthday and then it was done.
They thought nothing of it at the time.
Nothing much, they didn't do anything much.
By the time the twenty seconds had been tweeted around the world, it was already too late.
It was a pretty simple meme, nothing to write home about.
It was sufficient to make a message clear.
They were not alone in the room.
There was a wider meaning to their actions.
They had had an effect on a real person.
They had done something with their time.
There were tears in their eyes as they listened to the heart-sang reply.
Extraordinary how such a simple meme can move people to tears.
Thank you Maha.
Thank you Kevin.
Thank you Terry
They now know others care about them.
Twenty seven seconds is nothing.
Twenty seven seconds is all it takes to change someone's life.
Thank you Maxime.
Thank you is a powerful meme.
This is just the beginning.
