I believe in heartbeats…I believe in heartbeats because without them we can’t live. I strongly believe in this because of a past experience that ended in a tragedy when we found out that my friends mom’s baby had died. They didn’t know why or what happened, all they knew was the heart stopped beating. This experience left everyone empty inside, especially my friend’s mom. It’s because of that I take every breath as if it were my last. Life is an opportunity that everyone does not get to have. Life means a lot to me. So this I believe, we should take life seriously. Some people don’t, they take advantage of life. Life is not just a game we play and lose at. I know I don’t, so this I believe.
