It has been a while since you have been gone but your words and knowledge leads me in every day of my life and will continue to do so. Shawn McKenna you are of the best this world had to offer and I couldn't feel more privileged to have learned from you. I will live every day trying to empower the people around me and try to make this world a better place. Because of you I will always aim to "Catch People Winning". Rest in peace Shawn. You are my, and many other peoples hero.

Today has been an amazing day. It was so much fun to get to see the great teachers I've had one more time and I will hope to see them soon. My amazing friends have really made this 4 years possible and I couldn't thank them more. Congratulations to all, we did it and we will continue making this world a better place! -
Couldn't be more proud of my time here, and my group of friends I've made. One of my most proud accomplishments is everything I've ever done with @audreyhoyle @brooketofu and @arabella_14 and the great group we have created. The work we have done, and the people I have grown to be great friends with make me proud to wear this chord, and I will cherish it forever as well as you guys. The Vegan Education and Empowerment Coalition will forever be part of me, and I love you all ❤️
While picking an old song for an old love I realised something I hadn't before. Once after playing with my grandfather she had said "I didn't know you played as well as you did." I'm by no means an expert but I enjoy when I do get to play guitar and I had been with her a year at that point and she had never heard me play. Makes me wonder how much of myself I had lost. I now recognize as I brush the dust off of the guitar I may have done it again. It's so easy to get caught up in someone else's world and you lose yourself in it. Trying to be perfect for someone else when really you should try to give that same love to yourself. You can't be the right one for someone who will never see you that way and as much as you wish they could, you can't change it. Find someone who treats you right and when you do be grateful. It's an opportunity others wish for.
