Favorite Quote:
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

I do not understand
Why people have intelligence
If ghosts are real
If there is a soul

But most of all I do not understand
Why we need water to live
(We can go days without eating so why can’t we
Go days without drinking water)

What I understand most is gravity
Without gravity we would not be able to stand on our feet
We would be floating around like we were on the moon
Gravity helps all the planets stay in orbit around the sun
