The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.

Ernest Hemingway 

(via slebhy2772)

How would your life be different if…You stopped making negative judgmental assumptions about people you encounter? Let today be the day…You look for the good in everyone you meet and respect their journey.


"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."
Davey would have been 33 today. Wow. That’s time for you. Thank you so much for the life you lived and the impact you had in small amount of time I knew you. You left a huge imprint and influence on me. Happy birthday, Davey! #birthday #happybirthdaydavey #brother #latebrother #family #fbf #flashbackfriday #mylife #instagood #people #influence #impact #wow #davidmichael

The blue ocean the red sun used to wash its face with has turned blackThe white sky, the clouds, the rain, and the wind turn grayI leave behind the darkness that found its way to my heart
