    She’s not going to get better Terminal cancer means that it has already metastasis in other parts of the body nobody gets healed from late stages of cancer in this day and age but I’m sure but your thoughts are otherwise appreciated. I’m totally shocked but considering Valerie’s contribution to the arts she will not be forgotten

    It warms my heart knowing that there are students who have that good attitude towards their schools. It does mean a lot to me. I loved my school, but all I can see now is anger and hate in student’s eyes. They don’t appreciate what their schools can give them. They should ask kids from poor neighborhoods who use professional essay writers from service because their teachers have not taught them well enough. But this essay…it makes me smile. It makes me want to have hope for a better future.
