"Do you believe we all have a purpose?" I think it's up to each person to give their life a purpose. Some dedicate their lives to fighting in the army to protect their country, so become veterinarians and help animals. I think we are very privileged to be able to live in such a safe and beautiful part of the world. We can chose a lot of things many people don't have power over, and it's a huge blessing. I'm so grateful to be able to chose what I want to make of my ...
