Introducing Nicholas

Welcome! Take an inspiring walk through this site as wise, young Nicholas shares his heart-inspiring messages for all of you to hear. "I might as well tell you I am not an ordinary guy. What makes me extraordinary is not the fact that I have been in a wheelchair, yet from an early age, I have had amazing clarity about my spiritual mission in life." When Nicholas was 2 years of age, he began independently reading and at 2.5 years, he began writing showing extraordinary talent.

At 3 years of age he announced to his parents, Susan and Norman, "Listen up, I have a tremendous purpose in life. I am here to teach Our Creator's messages." Young Nicholas has been fulfilling his life purpose through authoring poems and insightful messages, giving public talks on topics such as peace, meditation, inner power and the environment. Nicholas himself was inspired by the great examples of Marshall Stewart Ball and Mattie Stepanek.

Nicholas, a young boy who gives so much, is an inspiration for us all. He continues to demonstrate what is possible beyond and within physical limits. While he is a boy who has intellectual talent, he does live day to day with speech impairment and limited mobility making use of his Love Mobile wheeled chair.

"Trust little with your eyes, the spirit never lies" Nicholas tells us.

Key Quotes from Nicholas

"Love is an absolute power in hidden disguise, even though logic dictates the power of money will rule absolutely, in fact, love is a greater force."

"We can all make energy more efficient, by loving more with loving energy."

"Don't you see we are not here for our own purpose, we are here for the universal purpose"

Matthew "Mattie" Joseph Thaddeus Stepanek (July 17, 1990 June 22, 2004) was an American poet and advocate. At the age of 3, Stepanek started to write poetry to cope with the death of his older brother. His first five books are: Heartsongs, Journey Through Heartsongs, Hope Through Heartsongs, Celebrate Through Heartsongs and Loving Through Heartsongs. All five works made the New York Times' Best Seller list. He wrote that a "'Heartsong' is a person's special gift to be shared with others... or a person's 'reason for being.'"

Stepanek had a rare form of muscular dystrophy, dysautonomic mitochondrial myopathy. His sister and two brothers died from the disease, and his mother has the adult form, diagnosed only after her children were born.

Stepanek wanted to be remembered as "a poet, a peacemaker, and a philosopher who played." His mother fulfilled her promise to Mattie and edited one last collection of poetry, entitled Reflections of a Peacemaker, another NY Times bestseller. His final book, a collection of essays and e-mail correspondence with Former President Jimmy Carter also became a NY Times bestseller, and was awarded a Gold Medal in the IPPY Outstanding Book of the Year 'Peacemaker' category in 2007. Children's Peace Pavilion offers a membership program called Peace Champions inspired by his work. In 2008, the We Are Family Foundation hosted the first annual international Three Dot Dash "Just Peace Summit" based on the message Mattie offered in his "Just Peace" book. During this summit, 30 teens from 18 countries gathered to study the inspiration of Mattie's book, and then learn to use tools such as photography and public speaking combined with the power of the media to spread their own messages of hope and peace. Three Dot Dash, the morse code sound for the letter V which is commonly used to express the 'peace sign' is now a year round peace initiative for global teen leaders who are seeking, making, and bringing peace to groups of people around the world by addressing basic needs of human beings.

In 2002, Stepanek became the Muscular Dystrophy Association National Goodwill Ambassador, due to his national high profile because of his poetry and related appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, and Good Morning America.

In 2003, Billy Gilman - singer and friend of Mattie's - released an album called Music Through Heartsongs: Songs Based on the Poems of Mattie J.T. Stepanek. The album reached number 15 on the U.S. Top Country chart and 109 on the US Billboard 200.

Stepanek died at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, June 22, 2004. His funeral was held on June 28, 2004, at St. Catherine Laboure Roman Catholic Church in Wheaton, Maryland. Nearly 1,350 people attended, including Oprah Winfrey and country singer Billy Gilman. A eulogy was delivered by former President Jimmy Carter, who said, "We have known kings and queens, and we've known presidents and prime ministers, but the most extraordinary person whom I have ever known in my life is Mattie Stepanek. His life philosophy was 'Remember to play after every storm!' and his motto was: "Think Gently, Speak Gently, Live Gently."

Madison Cross, the daughter of singer-songwriter Christopher Cross, a good friend of Stepanek, wrote and recorded a song dedicated to him entitled "He Was Just Like Me" in 2005.

So high. . .
Wind tickles my tummy
Plays with my feet
Gives my hair a ride.
So high. . .
Grab a leaf from a tree
Reach a so-far-up branch
See over the edge of my earth.
So high. . .
Meditate on being
Touch all my thoughts
Think about friends
And families and
Brothers and sisters.
So high. . .
Leave this world for a bit
Jump into Heaven for a moment
Then, swing back into my life again.
So high. . .

I have a song, deep in my heart,
And only I can hear it.
If I close my eyes and sit very still
It is so easy to listen to my song.
When my eyes are open and
I am so busy and moving and busy,
If I take time and listen very hard,
I can still hear my Heartsong.
It makes me feel happy.
Happier than ever.
Happier than everywhere
And everything and everyone
In the whole wide world
Happy like thinking about
Going to Heaven when I die.
My Heartsong sounds like this:

I love you! I love you!
How happy you can be!
How happy you can make
The whole world be!

And sometimes it's other
Tunes and words, too,
But it always sings the
Same special feeling to me.
It makes me think of
Jamie, and Katie and Stevie,
And other wonderful things.
This is my special song.
But do you know what?
All people have a special song
Inside their hearts!
Everyone in the whole wide world
Has a special Heartsong.
If you believe in magical, musical hearts,
And if you believe you can be happy,
Then you, too, will hear your song.
