And I said: Sister each other, because Sistering is the best part of life. Then I described what Sistering is, what it looks like and feels like. And my brilliant, generous friends at SALT asked me to repeat what I said: so that every single one of you could hear it. Because you are the most Sistering sisters in all the land.

Beloved teen Sam Berns dies at 17 after suffering from rare disease Saturday night could have been a moment for Sam Berns to celebrate -- standing in the middle of Gillette Stadium, flanked by some of his beloved New England Patriots, and no doubt cheered heartily by the nearly 70,000 fans surrounding him.
