“as i drove by a colorful, inviting car dealership today on my way home from school,
i saw one of the balloons that had been attached to a vehicle simply detach itself.
i watched as the bright yellow balloon floated fast away from the one object that held it down.
i could not turn my eyes away, noticing that it was the only balloon to spring away from the rest, in such a fashion that would catch the attention of an entire highway.
in that moment, i wished nothing more than to be that balloon.
…because no matter how pretty a site it was to see the many colorful balloons attached to brand new, shiny cars, and no matter how perfectly fit that balloon seemed to be, that balloon was intelligent enough, quick enough, and strong enough to break free when it desperatley needed to.
i need to pull through.”
