The worst day on the calendar...

Turned out to not be so bad...

I've got lavendar spray paint on my fingernails and a heavy heart.

I'd like to say that I am never surprised. And most days, I am not. But incredible acts of violence will always horiffy me. And I want it to stay that way. That is how I remember that I am human. The shooting in Ventura County, Ca...Well...I guess part of me is not surprised...I guess I am just naive enough to not understand it. Something Kevin Jennings said keeps running around in my head: "Schools must teach that we may not like one another, but we must respect one another." And it is sadly true. I am sick of violence and I am sick of hatred.

Amy tagged a building today. Well, what was left of a building. That's where the lavendar spray paint came from. I've got spray paint on my shoes too...I laughed so hard, I needed my inhaler. I love my best friends...There is never ever a dull moment. No matter where we go, we laugh constantly. I actually made Amander laugh so hard she fell down yesterday...But when one of the James lit some stuff on fire today at the park, the other 4 of us, would have ratted his ass out if he burned down the park...He's kind of the odd one out, but we keep him anyways...But fire is still beautiful....Reminds me of the Frost poem about the world ending in fire or ice "but what I know of desire, I side with fire" or something to that effect.

I've got poetry in my head...It just doesn't blossom out of my pen as easily as it has on other days...

I wish I could make her hurt dissapear without it costing me everything...Twice burned and all that...
