Honestly, I have no clue where to start. I would like to say, thank you. That’s where my whole story starts. I’ve been a fan since 2005, and have been meaning to tell you this since then. I was 7 turning 8 when I first heard of your beautiful music. I am now 13 going on 14, and still a proud parafan. I will be for the rest of my life. You guys have shown me to have strength, and courage to believe in myself, and my dreams. You 3 have stuck together, and I’m hoping you will make the best of it while you can. I honestly don’t know what to write to you 3 amazing, talented, young folks. You guys saved my life really… I’ve lived in depression for a long time now, and your music… It opens up to me, and I magically feel better. I ‘m starting to tear up while writing this to you. i am never able to fathom enough words to you guys.
A little story for you: I remember meeting you August 8th, 2010, on the Honda Civic Tour at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. I remember I stayed up all night before that so I can make a RIOT! shirt. I still look at it and smile, because all of your signatures are on it. I remember when Hayley said, “I LOVE THIS. Can I buy it from you?” I still laugh back at that.. I always remember standing between my friend Steven and you Hayley. I remember stuttering like a fool saying, “Du.. Du-dude. You are my inspiration..” and you replied, “I’m happy to ablidge. I remember all of your smiles.. I remember how kind you were. I remember giving a microphone silly band to you Hayley. I rememeber crying when I looked at all of you guys. I remember walking out from under the tent in the pouring rain, and dancing. I remember laughing and getting soaked. My friend Steven won tickets, and took me. I still can’t repay him enough for it.
I just wanted to tell you, thank you. For always sticking with us- even in the hardest times. You guys really are my inspirations, and most of all my Hero’s. I love you, God bless, may God bring you the best life you can ever have.
