We're working on writing something so riveting for this section that we recommend you sit at your computer and hit refresh over and over until our story goes live.
(**(I couldn't delete what CrowdRise wrote here, because I find it WAY too humorous, and I have nothing better to share- really I couldn't have said anything better)**)
Really, I'm just a small fish in the huge pond that is planet earth... (I am not a shark or even a really awesome dolphin, I am a lot more like Dory from Finding Nemo), but the small fish can make a massive impact. Reach the world. Touch lives. Pay it Forward (kind of like the movie, only without the depressing end. Okay, life IS depressing at times, I just hate when movies have depressing endings. I believe in happy endings. the stuff we go through in between the start and finish line may be difficult, may be depressing, and may be something we don't think we will EVER overcome, but that is all a part of our journey, and is what makes us the people we are. What you have been through has brought you to the place that you, is pivotal in what you know and believe (it has taught you the lessons you have learned, both the easy way and the hard way, though more often than not it seems to be the hard way), and is all you have to offer other people (I once heard someone, I don't remember who, say that we have to offer others is ourself. (our story, our life., etc.) What you have gone through, when you share it, may be EXACTLY what someone else needs to hear to help them through their own current obstacle in the journey to their happy ending.
