Dear child, one day in many years, you will probably realize that it’s not all that easy. These things that you had planned, these dreams that you had. Some will have came true, and others will have remained just that : dreams. I can’t lie to you and tell you that this world is as cheerful as cartoons and tv shows make it seem. But there is still one thing I can tell you for sure, one thing that I am certain will help you : on this very day you start asking yourself questions,  please remember that you can always change your path. Your life is yours and no one else’s. Please fight for it, and remember that even though lamp genies and pixie dust do not exist, your love for life might be just as effective a trick.
