A Birth Certificate shows that we were born.
A Death Certificate shows that we died.

Pictures show that we lived!

 I Believe... 
That just because two people argue,
that doesn't mean they don't love each other.
 And just because they don't argue,
that doesn't mean they do love each other.
I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.

I Believe...
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time to become
the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones
with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe...
That you can keep going
long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude
or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do
what has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the  consequences.
I Believe...
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe...
That my best friend and I can do anything,
or nothing, and have the best time.

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect
to kick you when you're down
will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do with
what types of experiences you've had,
and what you've learned from them,
and less to do with
how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe...
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life forever.

I Believe...
Two people can look at the exact same thing
and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours
by people who don't even know you.  

I Believe...
That even when you think you have no more to give,
if a friend cries out to you,
you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life
are taken from you too soon.

I Believe...
That you should send this
to all of the people that you believe in.
I just did.

The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of every-thing;
They just make the most of
everything they have.
