Today, I went to the Kimmel Center, its apart of the birthday celebrations. I went to partake in the Marian Anderson Award which is always cook to see; I love it. Tonight I realized something pretty interesting; people age! I mean it; people age; the body tends to age but the soul doesn't age. The way a person's personality is when they are young is the way it can be when they get old! If your a happy person when your young you may just be when your old! The soul is eternal and gravity doesn't affect it!
