Thank you family and community, Alex Garcia

Dear Mom,


I… don’t know what to say. I was never meant to be here. I wasn’t in your plans and I was such a bad child. Ignorant, spoiled, weak, and never helpful. I didn’t know how much effort you put into giving me a better future. You suffered so much for me, when you didn’t have to. You could have never let me be born and I wouldn’t know anything. But you didn’t let me go. You let me live. You cared for me. It taught me so much that I was ahead of the class when I was little. You gave and kept giving to me. And I kept taking from your kindness. I am ashamed of myself. I’ll get better for the future. Thank you.
