Great moments in tv history
The best part is how the hand giving the cigarette doesn’t belong to anyone in the room—no one is wearing that shirt.
A Story A Day #216 by M.D.L
My younger cousin looked at me and said, “There are some bad people in this world.” Her hair has grown so long, her legs, so slender, and her pale face is now filled with little freckles that she can no longer keep count of. I still remember the day when I was holding her in my arms and when she graduated elementary school. It feels like just yesterday but now, she is almost an adult. Yet, I still fear talking to her about the evil that this world beholds for I still wish she was small and fragile and innocent.
But I know, like me, she shall learn by herself one day that this world is filled with people who hold knives and chains and guns. I know she will befriend those who will stab her in the back and love those who will break her pure heart into pieces. I know she will feel the love she’s watched in romantic comedies and meet people who will make her feel worthless. I know she will encounter all of that. But that is not what I am afraid of.
"The worse thing in the world isn’t discovering all its evilness. It’s not hating people. It’s hating yourself. Sometimes, you become the person you despise and that’s when you start to fall down. You become your own worse demon, the monster you hide under your blanket from. Don’t hate yourself. First thing first, love yourself before you let anyone love you. Because when you love yourself, all the hurtful things you encounter seem so small." And that is what I want her to remember the most.
