I have an 8 year old brother with Down Syndrome. He was born when I was 5. He is my best friend. Everywhere we go people either stop and stare, or are friendly and approach us with nice comments. Either way, we are remembered. And I'm never embarrassed or ashamed.

C.M. Punk has showed to stand up for myself and not to let other people be in control of my life and that everybody has the same rights. That is why he is my hero.
Fiquei feliz quando disseram que eu sabia guardar segredo, devemos ajudar e respeitar as pessoas em suas confidencias. I was glad when they said I could keep a secret, we should help and respect people in their confidences.

So inspiring!! I need to work on being confident in my looks, personality, and strenths instead of worrying about my flaws all the time. Confidence really is an important quality to have.

In my life I am searching for so much right now. Confidence and understanding what I am here to do with my life is a big ? mark right now. For me, I am trying to understand the purpose...right now it is my kids, professionally I am lost, I am even more lost in my convictions. I need a bolt of lighting to hit me in rain storm, get that ah ha moment and transform my life. Tonight, my year and a half year old son got second degree burns on both hands and I am beating myself up over it. My wife is at the ER while I am asking question after question. There is no greater importance than the kids you are responsible for bringing into this world. In closing, eventually peace will come, but not right now when you can't sleep.
