At first I had received the key as a gift for completing my goal of running a 5k in all 50 states for 50 different charities before I graduated high school. I wore the key everyday for a few months and decided it was time to pass it on. The word that I carried with me for months was BELIEVE, and I truly BELIEVE that it helped me do anything I put my mind to.
I am gifting this to my friend who recently tried to end her life. As I wore the key, I realized that I actually didn't need to BELIEVE in myself, but I needed to help other people BELIEVE in themselves.
As I give her this key for graduation, I hope she realizes that she can do whatever she wants without trying to please other people and without people telling her she can't do something. As I have learned and hope that others can see, a little faith can go a long way. I hope she enjoys the key and can pass it on to someone who she will realize needs it more.
