Today I am thankful for life, and for the fact that I do not take it for granted. Today, a student at the middle school I attended committed suicide. I can't imagine the pain of the family and friends, or the feelings of the other students and teachers there. I am thankful that there are people to help those affected through the pain, and I am thankful that I have this life to live and that I feel a purpose in doing what I am doing now. I am thankful that I am making choices in my life that make me happy and I am thankful that what I am doing may help save the life of another.
