It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago today, Buffy and the “Scooby Gang” made their first appearance. While on the surface it was a horror show about vampires, monsters, and the one girl who could slay them, underneath it tackled social issues like: bullying, catfishing, and toxic relationships. Yet even when handling serious themes, Joss Whedon and his brilliant cast brought humor and love to this show which is why even now, two decades later, the it still has legions of fans. There are so many quotes to choose from, from the funny to the tragic, but the following has always been one of my favorites:Β 

The hardest thing in this world is to live in it. Be brave. Live.

~ Buffy ~Β
