It was raining. It was pouring down as if God turned the faucet upstairs on and hadn’t turned it off yet. I was one of a rare few who enjoyed rain. It was cool and refreshing and felt good against my skin. So, I put down my umbrella, took off my backpack, and started dancing in the rain.

If you’ve never done this, do it. You will never experience anything like it: the rain falling on you as you dance around like an idiot. It’s one of the best feelings in the world. It’s even better when other people start to join you, like they did when I danced in the rain. It started with just one other person joining me. Then it was two more people joining me, then four, then ten, and eventually everyone was dancing in the rain. There was no rhythm or music to dance to, but we didn’t care. We were too young to question why we were doing this, and just enjoyed it while we could. We danced until our clothes were soaked and we were out of breath, but we had the biggest grins on our faces. We were unimaginably happy. It’s amazing what letting go and doing something because you can will do to lift people’s spirits.
