So What Impact?
What impact me to be from here on out is because of these modern heroes. Back then I use to be lazy and was unmotivated from the things I do in life but however, after seeing those heroes, it inspired me to go above and beyond to do what I need to do. I needed a goal and go through an adventure and seek new ideas as to be one of them.
