Quote1.png All my life, I wanted people to look up to me. Sports star, big man on campus, captain of the football team. But what was I, really? What am I, really? A bully. A killer. I'm no hero but maybe, for once in my lousy life... I can stop thinking about who I want to love me... and who I hate. I can finally stop being scared I'm not good enough. Because I'm not. I'm not a hero. But if I try long enough and hard enough and make amends... maybe someday I might get to be a good guy. Quote2.png
