Make a difference today for someone who is fighting for their tomorrow. Jim Kelly 2018 ESPY’s
Every block of stone has a statue inside it.
It is the task of the sculptor to discover it – Michelangelo
Never before had the words:
United under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.
Ever had more meaning to me.
I was in the drive-thru at a Sonic when I got a phone call from an unknown number.
I answered it.
It was my doctor.
I lost my dad suddenly, my freshmen year right after counties.
It seems to me that later on, neither I nor anyone else will be interested in the musings of a thirteen-year-old schoolgirl.

I know you want to lie down amongst the rubble in your life, to just blend into the destruction.
They say the greatest mistake is in giving up.
It is your duty to build again.
When you do, the rubble will miraculously transform into a foundation on which you will build again.
Before any of this ever happened, I thought I knew what it was to be grateful.
It has been said the way you value a life lived is by the army that comes together in its time of need.
We have more work to do. Hard work. Frightening work. Uncertain work, unending work. Work that may test us, work that may defeat us. Work for which we may not get the credit, but work on which the whole world depends. The time is short and the odds are long, but I believe that we are ready nonetheless.
