"Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one." -Bruce Lee.

Over the course of my life,
I have crossed paths with some very talented people,
Some I have been with for a while,
Some I have only the smallest interaction,
All have left me changed.

Thanusha taught me that friends are family. We bring each other up.

And that alone is worth living for

The author's comments:

What inspired me was the people that I meet. Some of the people listed I see every day and it took me a while to learn their lesson. Others I only had a short while with them, but I learned their lesson faster. For me, I personally believe that everyone we meet has an unspoken lesson for us to learn, it's only if we are willing to listen, then we can hear it.
