Realizing what he has done the little boy runs to his room with tears the size of rain droplets streaming down his face. His mother escorts his friend out, and calls out to his father to go comfort the little boy in his room. Through the door, a Caucasian male about the age of 35 and beginning to bald walks in the room. He wipes the tears off of his son face and says “Listen to me. I know you’re sad, but everything will be alright. You made a mistake, you will always have your ups and your downs, but in the end remember Life is an Adventure”. That little tan boy was me.
