Advice of the Day:

"I feel like all I can do is be who I am and say what I believe, and I actually don’t think I have the right to tell anyone else what they should believe, but I want to be able to speak up and say that it’s okay for me to when I think it's right, and everyone else should be able to do that, as well."- Aya Cash
