This is unreal. On this day, 10 years ago, the most complex, amazing, and captivating television show of all time premiered on ABC. Words can’t describe what this show has taught me, what this show has made me feel. I obviously didn’t watch the show on air (I was only 6 when it premiered), but I can still to this day remember the first time I watched the pilot over 4 years ago. I was immediately memorized by the mysterious plot and the characters who never seemed to have enough secrets. I watched the whole series on Netflix in a matter of days, finishing right when the finale aired on May 23, 2010. Since then, I have lost count of how many times I have re watched Lost. No show has ever made me more emotional than this one, whether I’m balling my eyes out (Charlie’s death.. I will never be okay) or if I’m smiling like an idiot (Sun + Jin’s reunion.. “Tricia Tanaka is dead”.. the list goes on). No show will ever even come close to competing with the masterpiece that is Lost. Lost makes me happy and it always will. And I am so proud to be apart of this fandom and to be ditching school today to celebrate what I feel should be a national holiday. Lost is in a class of its own. I can’t think enough the many producers, writers, and everybody else who helped bring this show into my life. Lost will forever hold a special place in my heart, and I am forever grateful for the journey this show has given me.
I’ll Never be Lost Again
"This is a place that you.. that you all made together so that you could fine one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people on that island. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them and they needed you… To remember. And to.. let go." -Christian Shephard, to Jack
