The OneLove for Landon
is Many Hearts beating together
joining as One Love
we will be together at the Thirsty Marlin
here in Palm Harbor
where that One Love will be so strong it will rock the town as he is remembered,
his young life will STAND for something powerful as folks join together
and are moved to their feet with sounds and music all day long.
Remembering Landon Korabek;
a son, a brother, a friend to many, a young life with potential.
“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
~ Gone Too Soon ~
Kids often can’t see past the moment they are in; we have all been there in life,
we are swept up in the moment; at times making choices that if lucky we grow up and have families of our own.
Music moves us
Bob Marley said it all
with One Love
and oh how Landon loved Marley and his music, his guitar, his soul that shined.
One Love has carried the Korabek’s through some devastating times,
with the love of family, friends, and the knowing that love will see them through on a dark night when Landon’s love shines through like a candle burning brightly and yet searing the soul at times with pain like no other.
Let the music play on with the Universal drum beat of the heart.
While also playing for change
for awareness and education and HOPE for all that join on May 12
Some of us are able as adults to look back and reflect on our years, being grateful to have survived it all; grateful that we lived through some of the things we did, at other times amazed at the choices we made, or the peer influences we either bent to, or walked away from.
Some are not so lucky; they are either busted at the time; some involved or caught in a web by the associations they run with; others maybe for the first time pay the ultimate price;
that price is loss of life.
Accidental overdoses are second only to suicide among teenagers in this country.
Kids are vulnerable and their brains are still developing.
Well who am I kidding?
Seems many adults need to re-wire, re work the brain in all its wonder as well at times as well; by sending the right messages to their brains in order to live better, prosper, feel better.
a message that has been used and a symbol based on Landon Korabek’s love of Bob Marley has been the theme since his tragic and sudden death in his bed in his loving home on May 7th.
It has sustained his family and friends through the nightmare and reality of his death; through the darkest hour of the grief.
It is that OneLove that allows Hope in heartache; Healing through Hell,
and the music to play on
knowing that love never dies.
Landon is loved, he was given a beautiful foundation; he was a good kid, from a wonderful family.
He made a rotten choice that was probably influenced by his associations and other kids on a night that his defenses were down, and yet he came on by curfew, seemed fine.
His conversation was great with his Dad;
oh what a great relationship he had with his parents; they could and did talk often and about everything.
He had many friends.
He attended PALM HARBOR UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL.
One of the best here in Pinellas County.
However, since I’ve lived here, this is a school that repeatedly states it has no drug problems in or around its schools!
Yet, I also am privledged to know some of their students; they let me know
“you can get anything you want, from weed to pills, and you can get them in the bathrooms, on campus in the parking lots.”
Seems to me,
someone let Landon Korabek and others in that school down.
It is time for parents, community, P.D.,
to stand up and stand on educators, and the school boards with a reality check,
after all we entrust students to their care for 8 hours a day, right?
I am letting all know,
we must be AWARE
and we must EDUCATE
and we must
GET INVOLVED in the lives of our future leaders of America.
Rather than judge, we must realize we have all been there, done that.
However, back in the day, it was safer somehow, not as sophisticated, nor dangerous in the stuff on the street.
We also were innocent til’ proven guilty in schools and we were not as pressured to succumb to things like
Prescription Drugs, synthetic drugs,
and fear of people putting things in our coke.
The thing that was put in a bottle of pop
was usually peanuts!
mark your calendars,
set your timer on your cellphone, IPAD,
TELL YOUR FRIENDS.
MAY 12, 1-7pm
join us with
where you will find yourself tapping your feet, bidding on some outrageous auction items, raffles to make you holler,
feelin the love.
people who will be remembering a good kid,
meet his family, friends,
get you a t-shirt with that jazzy design
and a wrist band
is what we all need
to remember we are all connected.
If you are out of the area?
Want to be involved?
NOT a problem,
you can donate, and your money will be thrown in the pot!
All proceeds will be split between
N.O.P.E and Ruth Eckerd Hall

Thanks for being here!
May you remember
we are all in this together.
Susan, Greg Korabek and their son Kyle
my heart is around you
as you prepare to remember Landon in a public venue.
I believe he will be on that stage
giving you strength and all that you need.
