|When I stumbled upon this site today, I cried.|
Several months ago, I watched Stand By Me for the first time.
It was the first time I had even heard of River Phoenix,
but I fell in love with him instantly.
Throughout the weeks, I have searched online,
and found out tons of details about him
and his horribly short life. I feel like I know him,
like we all know him, and he inspires me every day.
I have now become a vegetarian to honor him.
If I could have one wish, it would be for him to come back.
Not even for me to meet him, just for him to come back.
He said he wanted to change the world,
but I think he has already done so.
