Everyone has gone through life’s struggles and triumphs. Being the eldest of four boys had a way of making me the leader in more ways than one. All the ventures I have encountered were of unselfishness and more of the need to be wanted. I made the best of all my encounters even though being the victim profoundly raised its head. The best thing you can do is keep moving forward and not to look back. This story of tragic and sometimes happy times will possibly be an answer to some—that things do get better with persistence and loyalty to ones self-reliance. All things happen for a reason and I am here to let you know, everything eventually, will be okay.

This is John Totaro, author of this unedited and personal writing. I felt it necessary to write this story and soon to be more stories due to the unexplained heart felt matters in my life. I feel that many can write a story about their life but don't. Maybe this will motivate more to write and expose things in their life that will help people in a way that they never knew.
Thank you for your support.. John Totaro

About the author (2010)

As a young child being the oldest of four boys I was the so called, top command of the house, appointed by my Mother at age seven. My Mother being single and being on welfare put us in numerous living locations. With all due respect for my Mother she was the best. The previous husband was very abusive and I witnessed this on a regular basis. My respect for a father figure and male authority was shattered. On the run most of the time, I experienced attending different schools and also subject to abuse, and climbed into my own survival mode. I was beat up regularly by the new kids on the block at each and every location we moved. My biological Father left us at an early age, who before I was born, met my Mother while in show business. They were both performers in dance and theater as well as musicians. My Father has since passed. My Mother is still an artist selling her works in the Bay Area. As I grew I realized I was a loner and found freedom and self worth as a long distance runner and was very competitive. I later, while living in Utah, was awarded with a track scholarship to the University of Utah. The few years living in Utah were the most pleasant years. I was injured while training and planning to participate in the 1984 Olympic trials for the mile run. I ended up joining the United States Marine Corps and upon completion of basic training was awarded Company Honor Man, Leatherneck Award. I found myself in constant need for acceptance and created a world of insecure and problem people in my life. I have since realized in my walk on this earth it is time to be happy and let alone the self destructive mannerisms in which I have indulged. I am using the knowledge I have attained at this time to make a positive influence and difference in the world and the prominent people I encounter. This story is profound but yet showing the constant effort in bettering my life and moving on. I seek to make an impact on which it may concern and edify the strong at heart. Thank you for your time you have taken to read this, it is from my heart...
