the "its" of this world
If you haven't read this book you really should.
I read it when I was younger and I reread it tonight. It takes about 2 and a half hours, a pretty quick read.
I am reminded of why I love those that are unloved. It is such an incredible story.
I signed up to volunteer some months ago at an orphanage here in Anderson. They have yet to get back to me, and well, I really haven't had the time to get back to them between all my exam preparation and job hunting/freaking out. I do need to contact them, though. I really want to be a part of kid's lives--especially the kids that aren't loved well. It's something I have always wanted to do.
I think as a person that's who I'm attracted to (as people in general). My heart goes out to the ones I know are outcasted and pushed aside because they're weird, or they talk funny, they are just odd. Everyone deserves to be loved and I want to love them well.
I will contact the orphanage ASAP. I will let you know what happens!!
