The noise escapes my ears and silence takes its place. Oxygen fills my lungs taking in all the fear. The worry, confusion, doubts, and loss vanishes. 30,000 feet in the air and I'm speechless.Finally i took a deep breath and jumped. The weight that i carry all of the sudden is gone. My focus is on the earth as seconds pass like hours. I reflect on my past, the good and bad moments and decisions. The people I have loved and hated, left out and bullied. I compared how small we all are to Earth, but yet the changes one human can make for a better world. I realize greatness has no size or shape but, greatness is a state of mind anyone and everyone can achieve.
