“You’re my Star, a stargazer too, and I wish that I were Heaven, with a billion eyes to look at you!” ―Plato
It’s all too fresh in my mind, all these years later, to talk about at any length.
There are certain things you will never forget. 9/11 is a piece of history and having lived through it, I feel more at war with my country than I did back then, when I was at my most patriotic. Our leadership is abominable. We’ve learned nothing in twenty years, and it is evident if you scroll through a news feed on any given day. We must do better.
“Caring was a thing with claws. It sank them in, and didn’t let go. Caring hurt more than a knife to the leg, more than a few broken ribs, more than anything that bled or broke and healed again. Caring didn’t break you clean. It was a bone that didn’t set, a cut that wouldn’t close.” ―V.E. Schwab
May the New Year be sweet, healthy, happy, and prosperous!
