As many know, I am really into music. My favorite bands are; Project 86, Family Force 5, Emery, and Underoath. I’ve actually talked to most of these band’s members by the time I graduated high school.

“Alright see you there”
At that point I couldn’t even breathe, he knew my family, how in the world? So we ended up at the restaurant, I cannot recall the name, but it was a steakhouse type place. This is where the most amazing thing happened. We talked about everything from life to music to music being someone’s life. He said something that made me feel incredible.
