this person obviously took this picture trying to make fun of him but hes straight finessin, transcending, hes on a different plane of existence. We are plebs

He took the time to match his shirt down to his socks down to his backpack. He’s draped in Nike and you just know he has a different color scheme for each day of the week. This level of dedication should be admired.

Post

The 15 year old girl found dead and burned badly I knew personally. I remember the day she was born. I remember her puking on me as an infant, and I remember her diaper being the very first one I ever changed.

Her big sister and I were really good friends. We still are friends, but you know how time tends to grow people apart. My heart hurts for my friend and her family. I’m so hurt and disheartened right now. That little girl endured an horrific death for what? She may have been involved in foolishness, but to me all I see is that sweet innocent baby I used to play with it.

I have to remember God has a plan. One that is so divine that it out of my realm of comprehension…RIP Dominique
