The first person Eddie meets is Joseph Corvelachick known as the Blue Man. He taught Eddie a very good lesson. It is that there are no random acts. That we are all connected. That you can no more separate a breeze from the wind. He taught him this lesson because little did Eddie know that something he did as a child was the reason of Joseph's death.
It's crazy to think about this because I know as a kid I've ran out in the street after a ball in front of a car. Also just everyday things you do you have no idea who else and how it is affecting someones life. I agree to a point were all connected like Joseph said but only in a certain way as of what one may do can affect any one no matter if they are friends, family or strangers you never know.
