“I feel like The Walking Dead would be able to cope with Rick’s departure better if they still had Carl around. He was the next generation, so it would make sense. Now, it’s just depressing to think how it’s going to be the end of an era.”

This hat was Dad’s before it was mine… now it’s yours. I don’t know, just having it always kept Dad with me. It made me feel as strong as him. It helped me. Maybe it’ll help you too. Before Mom died she told me that I was gonna beat this world. I didn’t… but you will. I know you will.
The people you love, they made you who you are. They’re still part of you. If you stop being you – that last bit of them that’s still around inside – who you are… it’s gone. They’re still here because you’re still here.
“Ah, shit, kid. I’m sorry. I can be pretty fucking insensitive sometimes. Especially if I don’t really like you.”
“you told me about the walks we’d take when i was 3, you holding my hand, around the neighborhood, all the way to ross’ farm. i didn’t know that i remembered them, but i do. cause i see the sun and the corn and that cow that walked up to the fence and looked me in the eye. and you told me about all that stuff, but it isn’t just that stuff. it’s how i felt. holding your hand, i felt happy and special. i felt safe. i thought growing up was about getting a job and maybe a family, being an adult, but growing up is making yourself and the people you love safe, as safe as you can, because things happen. they happened before. you were shot before things went bad. kind of felt like things went bad because you were shot. i want to make you feel safe, dad. i want you to feel just like i felt when you held my hand. just to feel that way for five minutes. i’d give anything to make you feel that way now.”
Have you ever had to kill people because they had already killed your friends and were coming for you next? Have you ever done things that made you feel afraid of yourself afterward? Have you ever been covered in so much blood that you didn’t know if it was yours or walkers’ or your friends’? Huh? Then you don’t know.
