“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” -Marilyn Monroe “I don't fear death; I fear remaining silent in the face of injustice. I am young and I want to live. But I say to those who would eliminate my voice: I am ready, wherever and whenever you might strike. You can cut down the flower, but nothing can stop the coming of the spring.” “Never again will I whisper in the shadows of intimidation. I am but a symbol of my people’s struggle and a servant to their cause. And if I were to be killed for what I believe in, then let my blood be the beacon for emancipation and my words a revolutionary paradigm for generations to come.” -Malalai Joya "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." -Confucius We all have struggles; with self-image, with people seeing us for who we really are and accepting that and freedom of rights. Everyone has these struggles. And yet, we seem to be drifting away from each other as a world. We are at our closest in all of time with the advances of technology, but crime has risen. Terror has risen. People still don't feel safe. We have the power to change these things. Through our writing, our actions, our words. We have the power to make someone find the light at the end of the tunnel. To have them share in on our fun and games, which I truly believe is necessary. Laughter is nothing but the best of medicine., happiness the greatest of wealth. *Rant Done* Get to know me: Likes: -Penguins -Rain -My family -School -Reading -Anything to do in the form of self-expression; Isn't it all fascinating?
