Dear future Me,
Today they shut off our electricity, again. Sitting in a barely lit room, watching Mom struggling to sort through the bills, I dread going to school tomorrow. It’s hard to come up with another excuse for candle-wax marks on my homework.
If I could give you one piece of advice it would be: Don’t falter. Be hard, but don’t forget to be gentle. Fight for your place in the world, but don’t forget to be kind. Above all, don’t forget to smile. I have high hopes for you.
Dear past Me,
I made it. Thank you.
And that, my friends, is a true story.
