Stand By Me characters (1/8): Chris Chambers

“It’s like God gave you something, man. All those stories that you can make up, and He said, “This is what we got for you, kid, try not to lose it.” But kids lose everything unless there’s someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should.”

can we just all appreciate river phoenix for the amazing person he was? like yes he was ridiculously attractive but let’s not forget that he was a supporter of gay rights, a feminist, passionate about animal rights and he truly believed that everyone in the world was, and could do, good. he was a beautiful spirit and soul and i’m so sad he couldn’t be here today
