people are screwed up in this world. i’d rather be with someone screwed up and open about it than somebody perfect and ready to explode.

Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness. People are just people, and all people have faults and shortcomings, but all of us are born with a basic goodness.

Today, 17 teens will take their own lives due to bullying. Please, think twice before sending someone hate mail, before insulting them, before picking on them, before making facebook or twitter or any other type of accounts to bother them, before spreading lies and rumors about them. Not everyone is strong, after all, we are only human. Do you really want to live your life secretly knowing you’re responsible for someone’s depression, suicide attempt, or death?
On another note, even if you’re not the one doing the bullying, don’t just stand there watching and do nothing. Like Einstein said, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look and do nothing.”
Save a life, stand up for someone that is being bullied.
Protect the victims. They will remember you forever.
Blessed is the person who is too busy to worry in the daytime and too sleepy to worry at night.
