Lucky isn't picking the right six numbers. It's seeing that the sad times let you better love the sweet ones. That sickness lets you better love health. Lucky is milking every word out of the good chapters. And when you're in a bad one, lucky is having enough strength to turn the page.
It turns out that nobody knows what's what when it comes to the media anymore. Who do you trust for your news and media? Now, picture that media outlet. Which way does their news slant? Left? Right? H...
My sister Yasmin took this picture on Jan 7, 2013. It was after my six-hour long emergency brain surgery. No one knew if I would wake up, but she took this picture.
