You know, I wasn’t always a butt-kicker. In fact, life has kicked my proverbial butt countless times in many ways, in many years, until I decided one day to start kicking back! Now look at me! … To all the kids around this wonderful blue planet, thank you for this awesome statue. And remember: when life is kicking your butt, never forget to kick it back right in the face! Love you later.
