Reading time: < 1 minute

In the past two weeks, I had been out of my hometown, and I currently am missing my family, my boyfriend, my best friends. So, just now I decided to send them one of the most inspiring videos I’ve ever seen in my life. I think you’ll like it too. This video was based on a column written and delivered by Mary Schmich, and it probably is going to warm your heart.
