What concerns you in the world: The lack of education in what is going on outside of our own bubbles, and even the lack of concern for what we can contribute to help
Best friends are people who: Love you unconditionally and without boundaries. They are there in the good, bad and horrible, but the friendship always stays the same. They’re the ones you can laugh and cry with at any hour of the day or night, and you can just look at them and communicate. You don’t have to talk all the time to stay close, because there is that unbreakable n=bond that no matter how far or how long spent apart, it never bends, or breaks.
A thank you to someone who helped get you to where you are? Cliché, but my parents. They have been through so much in the last 8 years, but they still show unwavering love to each other and even my brother and I, even when all they want to do is quit. They have shown me that no matter what you may go through in life, you can make it through anything as long as you have people that love you, and that you love just the same. You can hit rock bottom and from there, there is no place to go but up, and I never would have learned that, and found my place in this world, without them showing me that even in the darkest times, there is a way to find a light to guide you where you need to be, and for that I couldn’t thank them enough.
