[watch until the end please]
shawn will never read this but anyway;
shawn? thank you. thank you for being the human being that makes me and millions of other people smile.
you showed me how to stay strong, how to believe in yourself, how to never give up.
whenever you post a picture, my heart beats a little faster, whenever i hear a song of you on the radio i sing the lyrics along, whenever i watch concert videos i scream the shit out of my lungs.
illuminate gave me & i think i can speak for many others here, strength, love, confidence, happiness, joy and also - friends. through this page i met so many wonderful people, friends who i can always talk to. nobody needs to understand this bound we all have - but this mendesarmy is something extremely special. i can’t describe it in words, you need to feel it. we are always there for each other and we respect each other in every single way, no matter how anyone looks like, what sexuality etc., we are more than just a fandom, we are a family.
and i don’t know if it is just me, but i feel like illuminate made our bound even stronger.
i‘m extremely sad and i’m writing this with tears in my eyes, but this is the last actual day in the #illuminateera.
we went through a few bad days but mainly good days in this period of time and i‘m looking forward to a new era.
thank you illuminate & thank you shawn. but also thank you guys - running this fanpage is very fun and that’s mainly because of you. ♡
