Broken Pieces in Broken Places

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” ― Ernest Hemingway This is more than true. The world breaks EVERYONE.

It's an animated book about Baby Groot going to sleep. Perfect right? Well here's why I'm telling you...I open Facebook, at which I told… Continue reading Make It Count
