Dear 16 Year Old Me, Dear Someone Else---

I've had a ton of people send me this link on Facebook, Twitter and even in comments of this blog.  It's definitely worth watching, and I tear up every time I see it.  I wish I had seen it at 16! But I can still share now with people that don't know.  Please repost or send to anyone 16, or anyone who has ever been 16.  :)


I'm Too Young For This!
