I just want you to know how blessed, grateful, and privileged I feel to be able to call you my father. Thank you for always being there for me, for putting up with everything and always being in my corner. I may not voice it much but I am proud and thankful more than anything for that. You are my biggest motivator and inspiration. Being able to bench
500+ lbs is one thing, but being a strong exemplifier of our heavenly father’s grace, strength, and unfailing love is something way more powerful than that. Thank you for that, and for always having my back whether I want you there at the moment or not. I can only hope to grow up and become half the man that you are. I love you and am more and more thankful for you every day that goes by. I look forward to our relationship progressing, your advice and input in anything means more to me than any coach, advisor, teacher, or role model that I will ever have. Imagine going to school and finding half of your friends are moving to different schools because they have qualified for a school voucher. It’s difficult to see them go because you have known them all your life. It’s also difficult to watch them attend the school which everyone knows in your community is known to better than the one you are currently attending. Questions are also brought up to your mind with school vouchers. Students who don’t qualify may ask themselves am I put into a disadvantage because my friends are attending a school, which is known to better than mine?
