After my grandfather passed away, I didn't know how to express my grief. He left a large mark on my life, living a selfless lifestyle, and I admire him as a role model.

As a result, I decided to learn more about his past. The more I learned about him, the sooner I realized it was time I start to focus on my character. Will anyone look up to me in the future?

This story was created to represent how learning about the past can bring us into a better future. I used my personal story, concerning my grandfather, as an avenue to discuss themes of grief, regret, hope, and love. Hopefully, this story touches you in a way that resembles my grandfather's impact in my life.
