I just cried my eyes out. Literally. I was hanging out playing video games and I had to leave the room. THIS is why I love animals so much, and have a tattoo on my foot that says "Always faithful, Always loved" I also cried. Beautiful, I will greet beasts in Heaven this way!
Everyone needs an education... Not only for what you learn in class, but for what you learn about yourself and the rest of the world. Getting an education is a huge part of personal growth and this is something I realized in undergrad, but it really hit home in grad school. The more education you get the better! Remember that.
