I can't believe it's already been a year since her passing.
She was, and always will be, an inspiration and a mentor.
Her spirit lives on, and comes alive within me when I surf or spread cystic fibrosis awareness.
Ironically, Emily passed on the first day of May, which is CF awareness month.
We need to fight to redeem Emily's memory.
We need to get rid of this disease for her and all the other thousands whose breaths have been stolen from them.
Emily, I hope you surf the most perfect waves in heaven.
I hope you dance every day and have sleepovers with other cysters and fibros every day.
Breathe deep, breathe easy.
Oh, and give Annie a big hug from me :).
I love you <3 RIP.

Oh, and let us not forget the great news American received today. Nearly 10 years ago, Osama Bin Laden led the attack on 9/11, and murdered over 3,000 men, women and children. Today, he is dead. Praise the Lord :) God is good, now justice is done.
