My friend always talks to me about about, he says that he just keeps it to himself but actually he is hurt. I wanted to help him out. I always say to my classmates who always bully my friend to stop it. I wrote it not just for my friend but for everyone who are bullied and for everyone who wants to stop bullying.

Don’t promise anything today if you don’t intend to follow through. Strong but positive feelings are reciprocated when the Moon aspects Jupiter tonight.

If I would be suddenly independently wealthy person, well I would spend my time in charities. I would be helping disabled person who cannot work for their living and they don’t have families that can help him/her. I would help people who are in need.

I would also like to bring peace to change the world. Many of the countries now are in war. If I would bring peace to the world, then maybe there will be no wars that could be happening again.
