Love, Life, and Laughter
By Emily, age 13, Ohio
Love, Life, and Laughter are three of my favorite things. Love is just so hard to resist. Life is just so great altogether. Laughter is something I consider my drug - I'm addicted.
Oh dear, love may be great sometimes, but sometimes it tears at your heart until it's in tiny little pieces. Actually, correction there, love doesn't tear at your heart, the boy you fall in love with does. Almost every single girl falls in love with a boy who doesn't love her back, and it eats at your heart, don't you think? Maybe it's time you stand up for your heart and tell that boy the truth, and maybe he'll understand.
Life is a major thing. It's your soul, your body, your personality, and everything. Your soul is the biggest part of your life, just keep it straight. Your body is how YOU make it! Nobody else is here to tell you how they want you to look. Your personality is yours, all yours. Show it off sometimes.
Laugh like nobody is listening. Let your laughter ring through the halls, and show the world you aren't scared to laugh. Laughter is the best medicine. When you feel like crying, show the world a thousand reasons to laugh. So just laugh, and never, ever stop, because somewhere, somebody loves you. ♥
