double vision

sometimes we see things and we think that's how it is. that's how it'll always be. a lot of times, it's not the case at all. especially when you bring in other perspectives on the table. it's a wonder to me at all how backwards this world can be. how the good get treated bad [...]

remember

I honor you today for your service. For having been one of the most interesting, brave and admirable people I have ever known. I think of you all the time. It is who you were as a person that I constantly follow as a role model for me; to be kind and to be honest. [...]
