I've learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done regardless of the consequences.
I've learned that true friendship continues to grow even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
I've learned that no matter how good friends are, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I've learned that no matter the consequences, those who are honest with themselves get farther in life.
I've learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon. I've learned to love and be loved.
