“our lives are mere flashes of light in an infinitely empty universe. in 12 years of education the most important lesson i have learned is that what we see as “normal” living is truly a travesty of our potential. in a society so governed by superficiality, appearances, and petty economics, dreams are more real than anything in the “real world.” refuse normalcy. beauty is everywhere, love is endless, and joy bleeds from our everyday existence. embrace it. i love all of you, all my friends, family and community. i am ceaselessly grateful from the bottom of my heart for everyone. the only thing i can ask of you is to stay free of materialism. remember that every day contains a universe of potential; exhaust it. live and love so intensely that when death comes there is nothing left for him to take. wealth is love, music, sports, learning, family, and freedom. above all, stay gold”
