For those who have believed in our story
The old man who sat and listened
to my young ambitious ramblings
Not just waiting to correct me
or give me a piece of advice,
But genuinely wanted to hear
and made me feel it was worth telling.
Thank you to the sponsors
Who have sown and sown and sown,
Covering us like their own children
opening their wallets and their hearts.
We know not where we would be without
your contributions whether big or small.
To our parents who raised us
And endured the day our aspirations
led us out of their homes and into foreign lands
When our dreams took us from their arms.
They sent us out with their blessing
And though they wish they had done more
We can tell them that what they have done is priceless,
For who can put a price tag on what they poured into us?
Long before we even had a story, they believed in us.
There is nothing like having someone buy into your story
And for those who buy into the story, we hope you get what you paid for
