Never Letting Go

~Gwen & Peter~

I just finished watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was really good! I never got to see it in the theater and in my opinion, it is the best one. I was intrigued by the continuous connection and disconnection of Peter (Spider-Man) and Gwen and how they never let go of their need to connect. The best quote foreshadows Gwen’s death, but the very same words also give Peter (Spider-Man) the light of hope…her light.

“It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope; people need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live? As we look around here today, at all of the people who helped make us who we are, I know it feels like we’re saying goodbye, but we will carry a piece of each other into everything that we do next, to remind us of who we are, and of who we’re meant to be.”
~~Gwen the Valedictorian
