Life and responsibilities beckoned, so he gave up on his dream. Years later, on the brink of another responsibility, he was asked, “Dad, do I have to choose now? Why can’t I make my own choice when I want to?”

It was a Deja vu moment. He knew his response would be life-altering; the way his father’s had been. Having lived a full life but not a fulfilled one, he thoughtfully replied, “No, not at all. But I would like to help you decide.”

Finally, a better future awaited both generations.
