Man, There's so much stuff that happened here. So many fights, drama, cliques, making art, playing games together, prank calling people, and man. So much bro, this was an escape for many of us with problems in real life. Became friends because of.. maplestory and talking madddd shit lmao. Just extremely dumb teens doing extremely dumb things. I just wanted to write to my friends and enemies of a decade ago because things are not looking great lately and I don't want to go out without making my peace. I just want you guys to know that every one of you old members are a fond memory to me. I am sorry to those that I bullied and made you feel small. That was not okay, whatever the context was. Really, I am sorry to have hurt your feelings in the way I did as a kid. I know most of it was for shits and giggles and we were having fun. But there's gotta be a few that got their day genuinely ruined because of the shit I used to say. I'm trying to make peace now and not just by words. I'm out there in the protests, peacefully protesting, and trying to protect businesses from looters. Things are getting dangerous. I'm not particularly political because I have friends and family from both ends of the aisle. I just want people to be treated fairly and I want the violence to stop. I also want to stop businesses and people being harmed from the justified anger by the angry mob and people. They're just so angry and things are insane, they completely lose sight of what's ahead of them. Just in case I literally die or some shit, just wanted to make my peace. I'll see you guys out there. If you liked me or looked up to me in any way, listen, things are simple. Treat people fairly and give them a listen. The violence isn't okay so if you're brave enough, join me, protest for equal rights but also don't participate in the violence. Do not think of this as police vs the people thing or any of that. Simply think of it as, do what you can to get equal rights as well as, protect your city from being burned to the ground by doing what you can. Much love, near/NHK. p.s. stop blocking traffic, it pisses people off and some people will literally run you over. p.p.s if you do not have the ability to protect businesses do not try to do it on your own, find a partner p.p.p.s when trying to protect a business what i recommend is using your giant wooden sign that you used during the protest as a shield. Don't try to use weapons, the protesters may think you're a person trying to kill them. I use my giant sign because it defuses the looters as well as gives me the ability to protect businesses. It's non-threatening. Stay safe.
