To everyone I love and care about, and to everyone who has helped me get to right now in my life, I want you to know from the deepest, darkest bottom of my heart that I love you and I thank you for everything you have done to help me in my life. To my teachers Ms. Cobb and Ms. Smith, if you ever read this, and to Mr. Eubanks, thank you so much for every lesson I have learned and your infinite patience in teaching me when I was in school, and preparing me for the harsh realities of real life. To my friends who have always been there for me, thank you for the comforting words and everlasting support as my friends you have given me. To the people I have butted heads with and never agreed with anything upon, including the people who will never forgive me for the things and cruel ways I have said and acted, thank you for your infinite patience in dealing with my complicated, bipolar tendencies. To the people I have sold my dignity and my pride to to come forth and ask for help, I thank you for every penny and every dollar you have donated to help me and my family try to make it out of poverty. I swear right here and now I will do everything I can in life to work off the massive karma and debt I owe you and then some. And to God himself and his son Jesus Christ up there in Heaven, thank you for your infinite patience with my sins and my pride, and I hope that one day when I do die I earn my place in Heaven alongside my grandfathers and my grandmothers and I get to tell them all the stories of my life. To everyone, thank you. I will not give up faith that there are good people in this world; after all, all of you have made me the man I am today.
