In just a second, happiness can be heard, felt and seen.
In just a second, a smile can make someone’s day.
In just a second, a friend can be made.

In just a second, a hug can make EVERYTHING better.
In just a second, laughter can light up a dark room.
In just a second, tears can be a sign of strength, not weakness.

In just a second, love can overpower hate.
In just a second, time flies by.
In just a second, you are older and wiser.
In just a second, we’ve matured and are not who we were last year.

In just a second, everything is different.
