Surprisingly my friends weren't offended and they said somethings that I found really funny. My first catholic friend says he just goes to church because his parents make him and he thinks religion is dumb. My second friend says he believes because he just wants something to look forward…See More

"For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction so I feel there is always an answer to everything even if it seems gray at first. If it isn't all that important we will brush it off. If it is, we will search for the answer."

A short story.

I have a story I would like to share with my fellow Nexus users. Months ago when I was in Middle School, we had a day where someone from our town would read a story to our section (class). Yeah I know it sounds childish, but get over it.
