Dear Unknown Friend,

Yeah, I know it’s a small room, but I assure you that it will be full of memories when you leave. I know what you’re thinking, and I know that it will change for the better. I know that you and I are linked by this room, though we may never meet. I know he sounds crazy, but listen and you will learn something new. I know I did. I know it’s strange, no technology, not even electric lights; you’ll get used to it. I know I did. I don’t know why you are here, and at the end you will be glad because you will have lost a burden. I know I did. I don’t know if you love them now, but you will. I know I loved my mom and dad, and still do, at the end of it all. You will learn to love your classmates as family. I know I do. It might not seem like it now, but this will be the most memorable year of your life, so far. I know it has been for me. So have fun and know it will all turn out great. It’s no daisy, this year, at first, but it will be a beautiful year.
Joseph S.
P.S. Don’t ever sit on the side of the trail and die. You will survive everything.
