“See, we don’t really care who you are. We’ve kind of got the non-essential policy of deciding exactly who we open up to and let into our family. And then who becomes a part of our untied nest of harmony. And it’s time to become thieve less to this song. Through suffering, acceptance, grief, and strive, there’s no right that your puzzle piece fits into our puzzle wrongs, ‘cause everyone is welcome on this stage that we call life. And we don’t really care who you are, everyone is capable of looking up and wishing on a star. So catch it, so contagious: daydreamer’s disease. Hope can be your sword. This like darkness, believe. And we don’t really care who you are, this love is just like who you are. So bring me all the words, of your broken, bruised state. ‘Cause that’s the thing with music: when it hits, you feel no pain. No matter what you did, I promise we’d forgive it. What’s left is your voice, you’ve got a choice. So raise it, all your broken hearts, all your rejected dreams, put your hands in the air, let me hear you scream.”—Sam Miller’s Sanctuary Speech (via last-chance-candles)
“paradise fears had already started by the time we got in, but from what i did see of their performance, they’re an AMAZING band. i had heard them previously on youtube and such, to prepare for the show, but i had no idea they were that good. completely…
"Hey, I’ve been seeing a lot of people talking about download links lately, and I just want to say that it’s really not a good idea to use them, or provide them for people. I understand that it sucks to have to pay for music, but merch sales are literally the ONLY way Paradise Fears makes money. They are not getting paid for the All Time Low tour, and they won’t be paid for their January/February tour either. If people don’t buy their CD’s, they can’t continue making music.
Jordan was helping his daughter with a science project. They were using magnets, trying to get them to attract each other. After hours of this failing, they gave up. They sat at the table, when all of a sudden half of the magnet twitched towards the other half of the magnet. His daughter exclaimed, “The other half wants to still try!” Jordan then toppled off of his chair and fell to the floor, and in between sobs he whispered “remembering words that you said…”

Cole was rock climbing with his daughter. He had reached the top, but was too scared to come down. His daughter then shouted from the bottom, “FALL ON ME, DAD, FALL ON ME!” Cole then whispered “fall on me, nooooooooooow.” as a single tear streamed down his face.
Sam boarded a roller coaster with his son at Disney World. Right as the roller coaster started, his son yelled “I HOPE YOU’RE HOLDING ON TO ME!” Sam then whispered, “like it’s the last breath you’ll ever breathe” and then cried the rest of the ride, remembering what once was.
