Do any of you own something that you don't think you will every get rid of, no matter what?
Well, I do, and it happens to be a pair of shoes. These high top Converse to be exact:
Aren't they just beautiful?! Hehe. These were mainly worn in 8th-10th grade and I LOVE them. I'm sure I love them so much because of the wonderful memories from the time I wore them, but they are also perfectly fitting shoes!
When I was in 8th grade I wrote the phrase 'Make Love, Not War' on the shoes.
In 9th grade a friend named Ian asked who said that. I of course had no idea, and was pretty embarrassed to confess that! He said something along the lines of 'Why the fuck do you have that on your shoes if you don't know who said it?' Ya, that made me even more embarrassed.
So I went home straight after school and after quite a bit of unexpected research, finally found out who said it. His name was supposedly Terrance Graham but after some new research today, he's believed to be a fictional person... I am confident that I will never forget that name, though! It also made me constantly dig deeper into things that I hear or see, and want to know the origin of it, so I am forever indebted to Ian.
