Do you believe in ghosts?
I believe in the idea of spirits. I've been to houses where murders have happened and you have that feeling, that sort of eerie feeling. I get a lot of deja vu. I always feel like I've been here, and experienced this. Maybe I'm just crazy, but I definitely believe in the idea of something that powerful transcending.
