If you’re going to stay, stay forever. If you’re going to leave, then do it today. If you’re going to change, change for the better. And if you’re going to talk, make sure you mean what you say.
“Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.”
― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby
Life is about choices. Some we regret, some were proud of. Some will haunt us forever. 'Black Rain' was very much about choices. The message - we are what we chose to be.
Part of growing up is realizing you learn to love so many people. It's about forming those relationships and finding what will last forever.
