“I certainly wish I could have gotten my act together five years earlier so he could’ve seen this, you know? Logically, I know that if I’d started five years earlier, I wouldn’t have met Brian, I wouldn’t have met Arin, things wouldn’t have intersected the same way, but it’s still a regret of mine. I feel like maybe something would have happened where he could have seen his faith get more rewarded. […] I’m very fortunate.”
My heart will be forever ruined by the sight of Danny tearing up because his grandfather passed away before he got the chance to see Danny finally realize his life’s dream.
Even more ruined when I realize that that dream was us, being there and listening to everything he has to say and appreciating what took years of training and practice and strife and sacrifice to finally bring to fruition. Moreover, seeing how fucking humble and grateful he is that he’s made it this far.
I’m basically never gonna recover from this.
