Thank you KISS!
Posted on 12/10/2011Dear KISS, Ever since I was little, I have always been a huge KISS fan. I would sit in front of my TV and watch KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park over and over. It was my favorite movie as a kid. Last year I had become very depressed and had suicidal thoughts. I felt like there was nothing left for me anymore. I began to give up on myself and everything I had. Weeks later on my Birthday, I opened a card from my Parents. Inside of the card held two tickets to the KISS show in Mansfield. I cried with happiness and couldn't believe that I would be seeing KISS in just two days. On August 7, 2010, my biggest dream in life came true. I met KISS for my 16th Birthday in Mansfield Massachusetts. It was a day that I will never forget and it will always be in my mind and heart. I think about it everyday. Meeting KISS made me realize that you should never give up on your dreams or yourself. It opened my eyes and changed me for the better. I am so thankful for that day, meeting KISS, everyone that made it possible for me to meet KISS and for the people that were there with me on that day. It will stay with me for the rest of my life. Stand from Sonic Boom, reminds me of when I met you all and it reminds me to never give up on myself, no matter how tough things may get. Your music touches people in many ways and for that I will always be grateful for all of you and your music. ~Ashley Ouellette
