"As one day slips from white and bright into purple and permeated by shadows, so too does the summer. The summer of our lives, one might say. The summer during which we must enjoy ourselves the most, for it is our last as youth. This may not be true, though. I see already the many things that eat my time from within. Work and soccer and work and water quality sap the life out of the day. Pity those in pain and those who do without, but pity those who are alone the most. For alone is a horrible place to be by yourself. Maybe...no, not maybe. I am scared. Scared of change and growing up and moving on. Things were good when we were young, or so they say. I think they were right." -Derek Walton

The more I think about that, the more I realize how true it is. Life is so short, and this is our last summer before we're out on our own, no longer living life care-free.... or as care-free as it could ever get. I'm finally realizing that I'm actually going to miss it. I mean, after all, I am going to be leaving sooo much behind. Friends, Family, the only life I've ever known. I'm looking forward to the days ahead... but dreading them at the same time. I guess this is it. I've only got one more summer as a kid. I guess I better get to work.

God Bless,Peace Easy, Pray for Alimo.
