The Value of Friends & Loved Ones...

I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime and some choices, we live not only once but a thousand times over, remembering them for the rest of our lives, so make the right choices, because your choices will forever have an effect on the lives of others.

I borrowed this from a friend's Facebook status...
This summer- and tonight- I've really experienced what it feels like to be loved.
As I lie here in my bed, I cry as I think of the family and friends who were there to support me this summer after my accident.
My younger brother stayed home with me every day to cook for me and make sure I was functioning okay.
I will never be able to thank him enough.
I've had friends lose people close to them and go through life-altering changes...

My best friends and I have a message thread through Facebook, and tonight, I felt a closeness to them that I never have felt before.
Instead of talking about what we each did tonight, or what we planned on doing the rest of the weekend, we talked about love.

Everyone in "The Thread" (Minus Caitlin & Mallory)

The emotions poured out as we just said how much we loved each other.
Our emotions were fueled by the fact that a few students at our school were in a car accident... that involved a drunk driver.
As if someone being injured in a car accident isn't enough...
The fact that there was
alcohol involved made us that much more upset irate.

It's such an awful thing.. and it always seems as though the person to blame for the accident never has to deal with the physical pain like the others do. Although I'm not exactly sure of many exact details on the issue at the moment. 
I do know one thing though... if the driver of the vehicle that hit the young girls lives through this, they will have the mental pain of knowing the pain and suffering they caused for so many people & the lives they changed for the rest of their life.

You never realize how precious something or someone is until you go without. I don't know what I would do without my loving friends and family.
I just want to thank them all for everything they've ever done for me.
