Peyton :Bless me father for I have sinned. You see, lately I've been having impure thoughts about... Um... actually, I haven't been doing very well lately. This is the first time I've been in a church since my mom died. I think about her every day I just... I wonder what she would say to me right now if she could see me and see how I've been living. And I wonder if she knows and most days, I fall short of being the person that she wanted me to be. Or I wonder of she saw me do that line of coke last week. And the thing is...I don't even know why I did it. You know, my life is pretty good, it is. Um... but I was just searching for something to make it great. Something to make it matter so I don't know, I guess last week when I had the chance to change that and it was it was right there in front of me, I guess I was just scared to let that go. Um... but I know it was wrong. And I want my mom to know that and um I want her to know that I am not that person. And I'm not going to be.
I just wanna live a life I'm gonna remember even if I don't write it down.

away asylum-seekers, fed us suspicions and fears. We didn't raise our voice, we didn't make a fuss. It's funny
there was no one left to notice when they came for us.
Peyton : Anna, it's not about who I am, okay. It's about who they are. They are people who hate, and they divide, and they feed off of people who don't fight back. Yeah I could laugh this off, but what about the girl who can't? Who's gonna help her? Silence only makes them stronger.
"The courage of life is a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy. A man does what he must, in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures. And that is the basis of all morality."
Brooke :I thought I knew you, but I guess it's easier to see what we want than to look for the truth. You think you know
me, but you don't. And that means that you don't know what I can do. You see me as someone who's popular
and has all the answers. That's not true. I may not always know what I'm doing, but I'll try to make things better.
And when I make a mistake, because face it, we all do, I promise I'll ask for your help. I can't do this alone, but if
you'll take a chance on me we can do great things together. I promise if you believe in me I'll find the courage to
