(no subject)

I have had one cup of coffee today. I went for a walk in the park with Matthew. We watched as my dog ran around, sniffing and peeing and smiling and drinking from the river. He is always so happy. It makes me happy. I am listening to my best friend laugh so hard she is on the verge of crying. We are leaving soon for classes. We have a philosophy class together. It is a class on Friedrich Nietzsche. His writing is beautiful. His thoughts are influential. He makes me happy. He makes me want to throw his words at the wall and ceiling and out the window. Nietzsche famously said, "God is dead." I am a Christian. I believe in God. I still like some of Nietzsche's thoughts and words. There are atheists in my class. They laugh at Christians and say rude things each class. I sit quietly, tapping my pencil against my notebook. I wish they could see that all Christians do not preach hate. Maybe I will speak up today. Maybe others will speak up too.
