about true love

Journal Entry: Fri May 6, 2016, 10:15 AM


so yesterday i was in biology class and the period was drawing in to a close. for some reason, though, the topic of the death of my teacher's wife came around again. until this point he'd only mentioned about her death and when it happened but this time he decided to tell us the full story.
28 years ago, he had a very happy life working in a hospital and was looking forward to moving out with his fiance. she'd been the love of his life and they'd been friends their entire lives and dating for 10 years (ever since he was ten). he'd recently proposed to her and she said yes. everyone knew they were the perfect match.
fast forward several weeks later and they were in his car during the weekend headed out to eat. during a sharp turn, however, he lost control and they crashed. he barely survived and had to have brain surgery but she died on the spot. everyone blamed him for her death and he lost his job at the hospital.
fast forward again 28 years and here he is now - working as a high school freshman biology teacher. and yet, he is one of the most optimistic and happy people ive ever met, despite having never bought the house he dreamed of, being stuck renting a tiny house with a roommate and his fiance's family as well as his own blaming him for her death. of course, everybody asked him how he isn't miserable. all he said was this: "the memories i have of the time i spent with her will last me for far more than a lifetime. im very grateful for the time i spent with her and having met her in the first place." since the accident he has never been in a relationship with anybody and he says he never will. the accident happened when he was 20 years old. he is now 48.


a guy with a gun crahsede through the widow and shot sherlock and hefell to the floro dead and john said OH NO and held him in his arms
a single tear droped donw his check and it was sad. every one of the cnadels in the restarnt was blone out. it was sad
