You are born, you live life, then you die. People expect this and for the most part this is what you get. This is how my life was going to happen. I never knew this until one unexpected after noon and since then my life had changed. I knew it had changed too. Knowing you are going to die does not make it any easier and at times it may be very hard to cope with. I know this. So then waltzed in this boy. This boy was frustrating, weird and annoying yet he was the sweetest, interesting, special, and most inspiring boy I had ever met. He made me realize the meaning of life and he changed me. Not in the way learning I would die did though. He changed me in ways that I could not imagine. He gave me strength wisdom, freedom. He made me challenge my life. Question things I never would have noticed before. He made me come alive. Me, little Bridget McKenny was supposed to die and along the way had discovered something so magical. What it means to live.
