No one can make you feel inferior without your consent- Eleanor Roosevelt


I've seen a disaster happen in a day.
I’ve seen a whole community get destroyed in less than an hour.
I’ve seen people I know turn into people I knew.
I’ve seen total strangers pay for my meal because of where I was from.
I’ve seen people look at me funny because of the way I talk.
I’ve seen people listen to what happened.
I’ve seen people donate a lifes savings to help us.
I’ve seen a school get built in a little over a year so we could get a good education.
I’ve seen kids cry because of no reason, when inside, you know that they’re thinking about it.
I’ve seen people get excited because a Walmart was opening.
And then I’ve seen a miracle happen in a day.
I’ve seen a losing team win.
I’ve seen people say “WHODAT?” for months at a time.
I’ve seen a championship game win.
And I’ve seen a Superbowl win.
I’ve seen people cry over it.
And people rejoice because they’re prayers have been answered after 43 years.

"Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away."

I love it, really. It was even better reading it the second time.
