Seven of the people in my grade had mission farewells today. I spent basically the entire day visiting all of them at their respective homes.
Soon I will leave too.
All I can say is,
Sayonara kids! (That's goodbye in Japanese!)
You're the best friends I could ever have hoped for, and I love you all so dearly.
See you in a few.

As kids basically all of us loved to run around barefoot. To scamper on the grass, play under the sun, and just have fun free of anything covering our feet.
Why did we stop?
Now, likely most of us still go barefoot here and there and enjoy it, but we seem to be under the preconception that we can only be barefoot on rare occasions, on the beach, in the grass, but in all other circumstances we have to wear shoes because it's "what we do."
Many people cite safety and health concerns, and though the risks are there, they're not nearly as big as people make them out to be, and they almost never consider the risks and problems that come from not taking off their shoes: warts, athletes foot, and deformed, weak, and fragile feet.
Society has taught us to wear shoes, simply because that's what people do, but why not return to our childhood and enjoy the feelings, sensations, and joys that we all experienced as kids?
Recently I have done exactly that, and my feet have never been happier.
Throw off your shoes and free your feet!
You won't regret it.
