When infatuation turns into obsession…no one is safe.
For the past few months, an admirer has been showering Gwyneth with unexpected gifts. At first, she is flattered, but when the gifts turn into more than just tokens of affection, she reaches out to the police. With Detective Aaron Tate leading the investigation and keeping a close eye on Gwyneth, she begins to feel safe and more relaxed—that is until things go from being creepy to downright dangerous. With her life in peril, Gwyneth becomes her own protector. However, will that be enough to keep her safe?

Years ago, my mom gave me a card with this poem. It has seen a lot of times when I have been close to quitting. ~J. M.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low, and the debt is high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit!
Life is queer, with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turn about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worse,
that you must not quit. ~Clinton Howell
I thought this speech by “Chris” Ashton Kutcher at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards was amazing. Today, in a society where kids look up to celebrities, it is great to hear one of them give such a positive message. These are life lessons that teens, as well as adults, should take to heart. His message conveyed that hard work is key. I like the fact that he said, “I’ve never had a job that I’ve been better than”. That statement was a very humble one and I applaud Kutcher for thinking as he does. He also said, “The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it!” THANK YOU MR. KUTCHER!!!! It’s about time someone that kids admire said this. In a day and age where teens are buying into all of this “crap”, they need to hear and understand this.
