We all have that one fun family member. Mine is my dad. He is also my inspiration. In this essay, I will pretty much tell you the story of my dad, about our family and why he is my inspiration. Let’s get started.
The story of my dad begins with him being born in rural western Nebraska. He lived his life like most normal boys, moving to Mississippi when he was 7 years old. He went to a Catholic school. But there was one problem. My dad has ADHD and back in the day there really wasn’t much known about this, so he was pretty much deemed crazy. When my dad was about 17, he got into drugs. He went from one of the smartest in his class to being one of the 17-year-old dropouts. Most of the time, if you are into drugs, stealing comes along with the package, just like it did with my dad. This led to jail multiple times and then prison. Then when my dad turned 49 years old, he decided to sober and clean up. At the moment, he is 3 years clean and sober.
My dad was married once before my mom and he had one child and his name is Cole. Cole is 27 years old. Then there is my full sister, Gracie. She is 17 years old, she is a junior in high school. And then there is me. I am a 13 year old in 7th grade. I bring the boom to the party. We live out in the country in rural Nebraska. We are a close family.
My dad has been my inspiration for many years and I think he always will be. Some reasons why my dad is my inspiration is because he likes to fish. I am all about fishing. I live, breath, sleep and eat fishing. I also look up to my dad because he has gone to hell and back, and I know after doing that, that there is nothing that can stop him. If you are determined and put a little effort into it, you can get it done.
Now that you have read this, you probably know about my dad and why he is my inspiration. In the video that I am sure you have watched or will watch, I talk to my dad and ask him a series of questions and in the video we go more in depth about sports, moving, drugs and so on. Thanks for reading my essay.
