Looking back with a bit of insomnia creeping, I look through old photos (check below the ones that stuck out most). I look to see what life was for me back then. I remember the time and place, SOMETIMES. I forget a lot of things. I blame it on the two and half years of chemo, as an eighteen year old. Also the medication used to keep the incredibly healthy heart, I received from an incredible superhuman. His name was James (I know I’ve mentioned it a few times previously... sorry!) . He was a LT in the Navy. He loved people. He was selfless. I get to continue my life with a legend’s heart? I get to continue pursuing my ultimate life goal, in inspiring others and helping people overcome anything, with a heart from a man who dedicated his life to protecting this country? A person like this I will never get to meet. But you all will get to meet me. You’ll see traits of him and traits of me. Together we will change the world.
James - I can never be able to meet you. And that really bums me out. Thank you for my life
