    I Would Do Anything To.

    It sucks that I can't. I hate to be pessimistic about things, but how can I? How can I go to every single person that's crying their eyes out right now and tell them it's going to be okay? How can I reach out to all the children in third world countries that don't have anywhere...

    On The Nature Of Heroes

    I thought here I would talk about somethings. Things that need to be said. The things I believe in. Let's start with heroes. Heroes are the people who bind us, the personifications of the very ideals we all spend so long trying to achieve. But can we ever? Can we hold our...

    I Know I Can't...but We Can Make a Difference
