The Calm before the Storm…
The Calm before the Storm…Posted by: TJ Baudanza
Tonight, I curl up in my comfortable bed with my beautiful girlfriend and have my last peaceful, relaxing, sweet dreams for…. well, for sometime…. Tomorrow…… Tomorrow, the battle begins against one of the worst enemies we have come to know in this day and age. It affects all of us and attacks and kills relentlessly regardless of age, health, strength, social status or race. I am not a hero, or a soldier, or a warrior, where I can take this fight to the battlefield. What I am is a son, a boyfriend, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin, a uncle and a best friend, and those, those are reasons I am going to fight this disease. Those are the reasons I am going to win. YOU all are the reasons. I want to show you that there is no reason to be afraid in life, regardless of where the challenge comes from or who the opponent may be, because the most rewarding thing in life is stepping up to a challenge, looking it dead in the eye and saying “bring it.”
Now Cancer, I think its time for you to get the F&#K out of my body because you messed with the wrong person and I have an army of positive thoughts, vibes and prayers behind me. So BRING IT.
