I, Lauren Laws, do not actually know what is best for everyone and will hereby trust the people of the world to make their own decisions and still love them madly.
I have really smart and really brave people in my life and we're all just trying to figure things out, right? I mean, there are a few things that I am pretty sure there is a clear right-and-wrong, and I'm still going to have opinions about things, but when it comes down to it, we only ever know parts of other people's stories. Because we, unlike the Lord, cannot see the inner workings of the soul.
Living life is the hardest ever, no wonder no one makes it out alive.
an aside: Listening to the Inception soundtrack while reading a fairly epic email was a good choice. I recommend it.
another aside: i am dying a little bit. i don't know what to do with these last days. i need to do the last little bits of things, pick up my glasses, print off pictures of my family, gather addresses (if you're reading this and i don't have yours, i want it!), pack for reals, hug my mother, make phone calls, sleep, write a talk, breathe fresh oregon air before i get trapped in the mtc, mail a few things, etc. listen to No Surprises by Radiohead a few thousand more times, gather churchalicious music, obtain red shoe polish, etc.
