Jacob John Patrick "Jake" Simmons
"This thing called life isn't for the faint of heart. You could die any day in a car crash, falling off a cliff, getting hypothermia, a bad workplace accident, etc. Let this pandemic be a wake up call to everyone and when it's over, spend time with your family, go see that friend you haven't talked to in a while, let your loved ones know how much you care about them, talk to that girl you think is cute, get out of your comfort zone! Life is short but it's never too late or too early to make a change for the better and start living your dreams...who knows, you might not get another chance."
