10 year old Mariachi singer Sebastion de la Cruz was thrust into the national spotlight last year on America’s Got Talent. Tonight, he was once again seen by the nation as he sang the national anthem at Game 3 of the NBA finals in San Antonio where the Spurs took on the Miami Heat.
(Skipped Day 4 and 5 because I’m indecisive like that, so it’s onto day 6 of the challenge…)
Arizona: This is not general surgery on a miniature scale. These are the tiny humans. These are children. They believe in magic. They play pretend. There is fairy dust in their IV bags. They hope, and they cross their fingers, and they make wishes, and that makes them more resilient than adults. They recover faster, survive worse. They believe.
Izzie. Hands down. She doesn’t deserve to have a picture put up of her. I think part of the reason I despised her character was because I despised Katherine Heigl’s comments about Grey’s. I have a hard time liking a character when I dislike the person playing said character.
April Kepner. If Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital were real and I worked there, I would be best friends with her. She may be crazy, but she’s the good kind of crazy. She’s the crazy everyone needs in their life to spice it up a bit.
So, far I’d have to say season 8. After all, April and Jackson FINALLY hooked up! About freakin’ time! Lexi may have died which means no Sloan/Lexie next season, but as long as we have April/Jackson it’s all good!
“One thing we can do is remember these heroes as you remember them—not just as a rank, or a number, or a name on a headstone, but as Americans, often far too young, who were guided by a deep and abiding love for their families, for each other, and for this country.
We can remember Jay Aubin, the pilot, who met his wife on an aircraft carrier, and told his mother before shipping out, ‘If anything happens to me, just know I’m doing what I love.’
We can remember Ryan Beaupre, the former track star, running the leadoff leg, always the first one into action, who quit his job as an accountant and joined the Marines because he wanted to do something more meaningful with his life.
We can remember Brian Kennedy, the rock climber and lacrosse fanatic, who told his father two days before his helicopter went down that the Marines he served alongside were some of the best men he’d ever dealt with, and they’d be his friends forever.
We can remember Kendall Waters-Bey, a proud father, a proud son of Baltimore, who was described by a fellow servicemember as ‘a light in a very dark world.’
And we can remember David Hickman, a freshman in high school when the war began, a fitness fanatic who half-jokingly called himself ‘Zeus,’ a loyal friend with an infectious laugh.
We can remember them. And we can meet our obligations to those who did come home, and their families who are in the midst of a different, but very real battle of their own.”—President Obama at Arlington Cemetery today (via barackobama)

I’m not going to explain why I’m posting this. Yes, there’s a reason. Hopefully, certain people will read this and become a little more self aware. Call me cryptic, but it’s the best way I can express certain feelings at the moment. If you read this and think I’m posting it because of you, I am. Wake up and realize the person you are and will probably always be.
A True Friend..
A true friend wouldn’t hurt you, And put you down. They’d be there for you, To get rid of your frown.
A true friend wouldn’t call you names, And make you cry. They’d wipe away your tears, And lift you up to the sky.
A true friend wouldn’t lie to you, And pretend it never was. They’d tell you the honest truth, And not just because.
A true friend wouldn’t always get mad, And take everything out on you. They’d respect you, And everything you do.
A true friend wouldn’t leave you behind, To make your own way. They’d be there the whole way with you, And always be there to stay.
A true friend is something, That can’t be bought. You may go through fights, But that can be fought.
