There’s a difference between saying good bye and letting go. Saying good bye is 'I'll see you again when I'm ready to hold your hand, and when you're ready to hold mine.' Letting go is 'I'll miss your hand. But I realized it's not mine to hold, and I will never hold it again.'
Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can't control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That's what it was like for me.

We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it.

I wanted to do it. I wanted to take out all my anger at him. But... I couldn't. I don't know if it's because I'm too weak to do it, or if it's because I'm strong enough not to.
After all, you still need time to just sit there and take a look around.
I think a night like tonight shows a lot of young girls and young boys that if you can shoot you can shoot. It doesn't matter if you're a girl or a boy, I think it just matters the heart that you have and wanting to be the best that you can be.
