I have known Keith for over 10 years now. He was a server for a restaurant that I was a chef at. A 400 pound chef.

He is an extremely talented and good person. He does some acting. He dances with stilts. He made it to the finals on America’s Got Talent one year for it.

Keith met a girl named Michelle. The hit it off and married a few years back. I met her a few times as well. She is just as good of a person as Keith is.

Today I was scrolling through Facebook. I came across a selfie of Keith and Michelle. I did not think anything of it and started to scroll past it when I saw the word “Un-married”.


I stopped and scrolled back up. I saw a smiling selfie from two people who were officially divorced. They took the picture at court.

I did not think they were wrong for each other. I also thought it was very strange that someone took a selfie after a divorce became official. Especially as a couple.

Then I read what Keith wrote…

We are officially un-married. Here’s to the most friendly, respectful, and loving split imaginable. We smile not because it’s over, but because it happened. 

I smiled. I realized that there are people who truly make the best out of everything.

Keith is one of them.
