eleven years.

eleven years ago today, my world came crashing down. i said goodbye to my youthful innocence and discovered the world was full of repulsiveness and hatred. i realized that my precious little spot in the world wasn’t insulated from the terrible things people do to each other.

i can tell you every little aspect of the day; the images scar my memory. but i won’t. instead, i implore you to hug your loved ones a bit tighter tonight, to remember that though people can be unspeakably awful, people can also be unflinchingly kind. though the saying is trite, the message rings clear: life is short, live every second you can.

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine,

et lux perpetua luceat eis

Te decet hymnus Deus, in Sion,

et tibi reddetur votum in Ierusalem.

Exaudi orationem meam;

ad te omnis caro veniet.

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine,

et lux perpetua luceat eis.
