I don't know if it's morning, noon, or night. I do know that if you're reading this then I'm not here anymore. What I'm going to tell you are things that I didn't manage to while I was still with you. 1: life. Life is unpredictable, it's a bit of a roller coaster for most normal people, it's unusual for everything to go right all of the time. My life has for the most part been good, I've made mistakes and not so great decisions as you may make too,the trick is to bounce back and smash it right in the face (not literally because you might get arrested). You will come across lots of different people and situations in your life, some good some not so, stand your ground and remember you can do anything you set your mind to, don't ever let anyone tell you any different. Keep people who try to discourage you at a distance, believe in yourself and try your best. When I was about eight and living at the old house with my mum and dad (your grandparents) I used to play in the garden a lot. At the end of the garden was a small wall that I use to jump over all the time I did it so many times I could do it with my eyes closed. One day when I was jumping over the wall like I did so many times before I got complacent and tripped over the wall and fell into nene’s big half barrel plant pot, it broke, I cut my knee(had the scar all my life to prove it) and I got a smack for my troubles. The moral to this episode is don't get complacent with life always keep your eyes open to what's going on around you. Try to be nice to people (but don't let them take the piss) remember everyone's struggles are different and some people won't advertise the fact something is wrong so be careful. Never do anything you're not comfortable with you are your own person and you owe nothing to anyone. Don't fare dodge there's no point ( your brother did it once “by accident “ ended up costing me £30) in life pay your way and hold your head up high.
Jack, a homeless Vietnam Veteran is befriended by a young boy who sees Jack’s War medal and becomes fascinated by it. The boy, Timothy, is convinced that the world is going to end on the 21st of December 2012, as predicted by the ancient Mayans. A series of brutal assaults and murders of Catholic Priests has been occurring in small town churches from Sydney to Melbourne. The murders are solved but not before social media runs riot and causes the wife of a slain Homicide Detective to murder the homeless man, Jack, as she mistakenly believes he killed her husband. Social media redeems itself when it is used by police to gather people together to find two missing children (Timothy and his friend Jane) who witnessed Jack’s murder and ran away as a result. In the final scene, Timothy forgives the wife of the murdered Detective for killing Jack.
The saying in life is really true that a persons life can change overnight! Mine did in 2010 when I woke up with a swollen leg, that afternoon I was in an emergency room in Hackensack NJ. The Ultra sound showed 3 blood clots! The one in my leg was called Deep Vein Thrombosis and the other two were by both lungs called Pulmonary Embolisim. Between 2 hospital stays, 3 leg operations, and a stay in physical rehab I was in a bed for 30 days. I always say Be Thankful For What You Have!
