You can say what you want about the Florida shooting survivors (except that they’re crisis actors โ€” please don’t say that), but you can’t say that they aren’t getting their point across. It’s been a little over two weeks since the shooting atย Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left 17 of their peers and mentors dead, and since then there have already been several other school shootings โ€” and even more that had been planned.

This morning, two were shot dead in a domestic incident at Central Michigan University, which, unfortunately, didn’t come as a huge surprise to many people, especially after everything that’s happened in the past few weeks.

Some of the Florida shooting survivors have taken to Twitter to make a point: that nothing is going to change unless someone does something to make that change. That we cannot let this become the norm. That their classmates deaths will not be in vain.

Give ’em hell, kids. You are the future. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If thereโ€™s one thing we all need to stop doing, itโ€™s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person youโ€™ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love โ€“ one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that weโ€™re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

Let go now

Never give up hope.

How do you come back from your lowest point? How do you drag yourself out of that black hole of nothingness that has consumed your life? For me, being diagnosed withย Hidradenitis Suppurativaย wasnโ€™t easy. I now believe that if I can manage this skin condition, I can do anything.
