Hi! It’s me! Lily!
Subscriber content inserted, you know the drill.
Life is a little scary right now.
I don’t pay much attention to politics and wars and stuff. I mean, I’m a seventeen year old girl! My biggest worry should be whether to get the black or pink dress at the mall! Right?
Well.. kind of. You know what I mean.
But Dave and Sabby sat us all down last night and told us about all of the stuff going on in the world, how there’s a chance it could impact us, and how we need to be careful and protect ourselves if necessary.
It’s scary!!! I don’t know who’s right or who’s wrong but the idea that someone can bomb us from the sky!!! Awww!!!!!!
But they also said that even if that happens it’s not the end of the world, life will go on somehow. I hope so. But I hope it doesn’t happen more. I guess we just move on and hope for the best.
Tonight I drove over to Jack’s house and spent some time with him after he got home from work. I told them how I was feeling and that I was a little scared.
His mother gave me a hug. “It’ll be alright,” she said. “It will.”
“I know,” I said sniffling. I went home, my heart heavy and light at the same time. I really do love him, and now’s the time to spend with your loved ones, I think.
