The Offspring were another group I liked listening to a lot of back in the day.
“Fragile lives, Shattered dreams…”
That sentence really means a lot, not just in the context of the song. I have mentioned a long time ago that a person I know, whom I had called a friend, ended his life shortly after his graduation. In another case, a person who should have been considered a mentor, of someone I knew, was so harsh with her words it nearly destroyed the dreams of that person.
These two were the main examples as to why, as a support for children and youth in education, I never ever wanted to be a part of. Our lives can be quite fragile when our lives hit crossroads, but it is important to support them rather than destroy their dreams. We all have some sort of potential, why destroy the hopes in them finding if just because we can’t see it for ourselves at that immediate moment?
Anyway, just something I have been thinking about again lately. On another note, this MV was amusing to me because of the way that it reminded me of the SIMS in a weird way…and that was another game I liked playing a lot of back then (…and I might have a version of it on my phone now to pass time sometimes lol).
