i remember.

words can't really describe the kind of sadness i feel on a day like today.
it is a wistful kind, making me yearn for simpler days, days free from fear.
it is a kind that makes my heart hurt for those lost, & for those left behind.

but with that sadness, comes thankfulness.
thankfulness to be alive, to be safe, to be free.
and with that thankfulness, the urge to love fiercely.

i will always remember.
and that memory will push me to be thankful for every day.
every breath.
