Ive come to realize I have alot to be greatful for. Ive gotton alot closer to Jesus Christ as a result, This was really an eye opener, Thankfully Im young enough to realize, this is not the route I want for myself.
A career and future, as well as family is all Ive been thinking and dreaming about as of lately. the past 2 months, I really dont want to go down the path Im headed towards
If theres a thing called a second chance, Im Begging you for it. I graceously ask if you can somehow see as if I can get my life back on track to Joining the Army. Ive never been that good in school, but I became discouraged throughout the years, which made me take drugs to fit in. Physically and mentally Im capable and ready to embark on life long career in which I can truly suceed. Id rather serve my country than serve time and let my life slip by and disapoint myself and my loved ones.
If there is anyway you can help me achieve this goal of a career in the army so I can truly make somethin gof myself, I promise you I will make the best of the opportunity and become someone we can both be proud of.
I Just need help. Alot of prayers brought me to this point of having the courage to write you. Please, Please help me.
