I'm Anthony. Twenty-one years old. I used to be a firefighter and EMT, now I'm in the Army. I love music, drumming, playing guitar/piano, rock climbing, backpacking, literature, Elizabeth, and EMS. I pretty much love anything that involves the outdoors or an adrenaline rush, and if it involves both...then I'm all set!

Another night of staring at the ceiling hoping that my thoughts will stop for two seconds so I can fall asleep.

I can distract myself as much as I want throughout the day and have joyful moments and smile. But, at the end of it all when I’m sitting here in thought…all I can think of or dream of is you. How you being here would make everything better. I miss you. Oh, so much. I love you, dearest. With all of my heart and soul.

“Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.”
