    9/18/2014 4:05:21 PM, by REBECKY441

    Have you ever been afraid? There are so many things we can really be afraid of and yet I've found it so hard to be afraid of anything in my life while growing up. I've been fearless! I remember one time when I was 8 years old; my grandfather took me on a camping trip with him to Yosemite. T... Read more
