1174939_10152120285469692_602067880_nI have a strong belief in resiliency, represented by the weed nature of dandelions, after within the time span of six months, I knew six people that passed, my best friend was diagnosed with an eating disorder, my second closest friend’s parents marriage dissolved, police got involved, and she moved in with me and my family. I found strength to fight on by getting closer to my two sisters, thus there are three seeds, each one representing one of us. At the end of the six months, my coach/dad’s best friend was charged with child molestation, and within two weeks he had committed suicide. The fact that in two weeks, his life was flipped upside down, I chose dandelion seeds floating to represent the fragility of life.
