"I Feel Lost” Response
When I saw Mark’s newest upload this morning, I didn’t know what to expect. The title “I Feel Lost” made me both curious yet nervous as to what this would be about.
I went to school today, working on editing photographs for my teacher and I put the video up in a new tab side by side. At first, I was just working and wasn’t looking at the screen. But when I heard the way Mark sounded as he spoke…
I stopped my work, turned to the screen and listened.
Before I knew it, I had a couple tears running down my face the same as Mark. His words on how he felt about himself and the life he has right now, I felt how geniune and how honest he was being with us. I’ve known Mark since 2013 and its insane to see how far he’s come since I first found him. Still crazy that I talked to him no less than 2 weeks ago. From how long I’ve watched him, He has inspired so many people including me and the fear he expressed about disappointing us tugged on a heartstring. Everyone gets that fear and its heavy and scary to feel that way. From talking to him about how he’s changed my life, I’m starting to truly see how much we’ve changed his. How his future since college has changed expotientally and how his drive and fire and passion and love for the community is so strong. The opportunities he’s had and the offers he’s turned down is because of us. He could have done those offers but he chose to dedicate it to us. All he wants is to give back to the community, thats all he truly wants.
He is so fucking proud of us..
The same way we are proud of him.
I’m happy he made this video and expressed this. It sounded like he really needed to say it and I’m proud of him.
