So, I think someone might actually start reading these.

I'm writing again, and I think I'll do this daily. I'm still not EXACTLY sure what a blog is, but I think I'm doing something right. My goal in this is not only to help myself in finding my voice, but also to help and inspire somebody else out there as well. I suppose that you will get to know me as each day goes by, and a new blog is posted. For now, I'll start by telling you that I'm a sophomore in high school who goes by Mitchie. I'm not sharing these things because I find my life interesting in any way at all, but because somebody out there is going to be able to relate, and realize they're not alone, and anything is possible. I'm sure I sound REALLY "Korny" (Yes, I just said that) and cliche, but it's the truth.

Death. Guys, that's a strong subject. It just kind of hits a nerve. Over Summer break, my uncle, a 36 year old navy veteran, passed away. He was the first close relative I've had pass away at an age that I understood what actually happened. I went to his funeral, my first I've attended, and of course it was upsetting. It was really a wake up call, slamming me back into reality. Not fun. Just as I am finally starting to recover, I call my grandfather (also his dad), only to discover he's dying. He has maybe a month, as he is in stage four cancer. It's stressful, and I am hoping that this is a good subject to start with, because many people have experienced a death happening to someone near to them. So, what I want to get across for today is, if you are experiencing or dealing with a death, or dying friend/family member, you are NOT alone, and somebody is here for you. While it seems absolutely impossible, I need you all to know that no matter how bad, sad, stressful, upsetting, or depressing your situation seems right now... It gets better. Trust me, I know. I've had times when I thought I just cannot ever move on, and I've had moments when I thought something would always haunt me. Guys, it gets better. You're not alone. I'm here.

    Definitely. That was a very brave decision. It's probably one of the biggest mysteries because there's no way to know what happens afterward. The only way is for you to die yourself, and you cannot share that experience with anyone. We see it as so sad, but how can we when we don't even know what has happened for sure?

    Death. The ultimate mystery. No one really knows what is on the other side. My Aunt died on Good Friday this year. She was in a bad accident, and she was put on life support. She decided that she did not want to live like that, and while she was surrounded by family, she pulled the plug and got to go out peacefully, on her time, with her loved ones around her. I think that was such a brave decision. I will always miss her, and I will be curious to know if I will see her when my time comes. I hope I will be as brave as her when she decided that it was time to see what is after life. One thing I think is a certainty after death is that there is no longer pain. That is something to look forward to.
