Canadian Tire

They say Canada is a wasteland.

They say summer is too short.

They say the world is increasingly violent.

They say senior citizens are senile.

They say hearts don't bleed.

They say water is contaminated.

They say success is measured by numbers.

They say history repeats itself.

They say disease is spreading.

They say families fall apart.

They say wild animals attack.

They say hockey is a lesser sport.

They say ginger ale is for sick stomachs.

They say I am a robot.

They say I am no different.

They say I am a failure.

Canada is beautiful through and through.

This summer has memories to fill a lifetime.

The people I've met are all peaceful.

Elderly have the best morals in their stories.

My heart bled.

I drink water in nature every day.

Success is in your mind.

Every day is a new experience.

Free healthcare.

My family loves me.

I stood 5 feet from a black bear.

Hockey is life.

Ginger ale goes with any meal.

I am Devon.

I am me.

I have a beautiful future.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

-Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Good work, Devon. Poetically powerful. Thank you.

I like how you threw ol' Captain Moroni in the slideshow (AKA: Tebow 2.0, AKA: Sam Burdick).
Oh, and that oatmeal he's stuffing his Keanu Reeves-looking face with, I'm pretty sure I gave him that recipe. So, I'll take a little bit of credit for that crazy hot physique he's rocking.
