“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Maybe I'm an eternal optimist or maybe I'm just naive, but I believe one person can make a difference in this life. With the support of friends, family, and a belief in something greater than life itself, dreams are achievable...this is something no one can convince me otherwise. How will I make a difference? I plan to be a devoted husband and father who will do his best to instill values into his family, hoping that his children can have an even greater impact in the world. I plan to run for public office with the desire to replace cynicism with the hope that our country can be the leader in making this world an even better and safer place. My aspirations are bold and maybe one day I will be blessed to run for the Presidency of our great nation, a job made infinitely more difficult by the tragedy which took place on September 11, 2001. Wherever my path might lead, my friends, family, and all those I have come to know will always be able to count on two things: my commitment and my determination.
