I'm not afraid of anything in this world. There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard.~Bono

"I actually felt like everything would be just fine. Not perfect, but just fine. On good days now I can feel that way for hours. Feel like there is a big pair of hands holding me up. Feel like underneath the terror there is some kind of wonder waiting for me...And all I have to do is keep walking, with my ears tuned and my eyes wide open." ~Little Altars Everywhere, Rebecca Wells
