I got some awful news when I got back from Barcelona. A couple of weeks ago I went out with some friends and met Landon. He was such a nice guy-full of life, kind, funny and friendly. You can imagine my shock when I learned of his death this past Wednesday. Even though I only met him once, Landon changed me. He made me realize that I have to live life to the fullest and get the most out of my experiences. Whenever I feel homesick or stressed, I think of Landon. He reminds me to cherish every moment. Rest in peace, Landon!
