Time (Joseph Michael Benoit - Iowa, LA)

Time, I've got Time. Not always at the same time, but, never jealous about time spent apart. Any time, together, alone, or whatever when we pledge our hearts if not for forever we will never be richer than we were from the start

People (Chase Miller - New Orleans, LA)

Do you ever stop and wonder, are the people that I care about now, going to be the same people that I care about later? I find myself asking this question every day. We meet so many individuals in our life, it's so hard to keep track of them all, especially when you are the kind of person that makes friends so easily.

If someone told him that he was required to wake up early and shine his shoes everyday, he would most likely wake up at precisely 5:00 a.m. on the dot, and then shine his shoes to a brilliant glimmer. Now, our friend Bob here sounds like a nice man. Clean cut, honest, and friendly. But here's the problem. Bob has no job, no education, and still lives with his parents. Why is this, you might find yourself asking? Because Bob believes in the power of prayer. Now, you may found yourself asking why the heck am I dogging the fact that Bob prays.
