When I was a young lad all I ever wanted to do when I grew up was be an aircraft designer. It seems like such a long time ago..now..? At this moment in time all I want to do is get to China never have I had such drive then right now at this precise moment…all I can say when I put up my my gofundme.com link you see.. no effort when its an opportunity that only comes around once in a lifetime.
I was heading home after putting my x on the voting sheet , reflecting and thinking back to what mom and dad used to tell me. To be honest, had a lump in my throat because mom would always stand by me and say “if you believe you can do something, then you will, don’t let anyone tell you different” Dad would’ve been more cautious and always think safety first and be the responsible one..Dad would go with his head first and heart last .. I on the other hand am like my mother and wear my heart on my sleeve. So that’s why I am so passionate about going to China and touching an amazing part of Asian History .
Growing up without a lot of things taught me the meaning of appreciation and this is one of those times… If being unemployed has taught me anything its that even though things are grim , it doesn’t matter when there is hope. I am very fortunate to be in a fairly positive place in my life at this moment in time..and really thankful to a lot of people friends and family that believe in me and what I am capable of doing and becoming. Also think that me Mom and Dad would really be proud of me.. Quite an odd feeling knowing that even they aren’t amongst the living they still have a hold on me..
I guess just want to thank everyone who has been supportive with donating to my fund to those that have given me the motivation and given me positive feedback and most of all Mom and Dad if you are reading this up in heaven thank you for being amazing role models despite the other stuff you were brilliant parents..
