-You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life-
I don’t think I will ever understand why things like brain cancer happen to such innocent families, or how anyone is supposed to deal with it- especially the people immediately affected. The only thing I know right now is that students are putting differences aside and learning to appreciate each other and to stand up for what’s important, and this community is all coming together getting through it with each other and it is truly remarkable.
Rest in peace, Ali, you were the best daughter, friend, sister, and cousin, and you will never be forgotten. You were someone everyone should strive to be like. I only wish I could be half as brave and strong as you have been these past two years. Long live Scituate High School’s beautiful homecoming queen of 2012. <3
