If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” — Henry David Thoreau
Your first game. Your first touchdown.
When you were little, and broken, when even your smile was misshapen, I wondered if there would ever be a day like this one.
Back then, I held you. I hoped for you. I dreamed for you.
And now, watching it all unfold before me, it is hard to put into words what that feels like.
I am watching your dreams come true.
Long ago, you built your castles in the air, William. And now you have begun to build the foundations which must hold them up. Don’t give up. Don’t ever, ever give up.
