Chapter OneHello everyone.
I welcome you all this day. Thank you for purchasing this book. I will assure you it will be inspirational, knowledgeable and needed at this point in time. For many years we have elected presidents in the United States of America, and I am sure you have noticed we never know anything about them. All we ever know about them is that there is a man or women running for office. That's about it. I thought I would change this; I am going to write about myself, I am going to share with all of you, all about me. My name is 7 Michaels.
First and foremost, I was born July, 1968 in the northern mountains of Vermont. I have two older sisters. I have a mother and a father. We lived in St. Albans, Vermont. I will have to elaborate where we lived in St. Albans, Vermont because we lived deep within the canopy of the mountains, and I do mean deep; very deep within the mountains. We didn't have any neighbors, and very rarely did we even see a car drive by. I just want to be honest with all of you.
I came from a poor family; we never had anything fancy or special. I can remember what it was like for me growing up. Trust me when I say, I grew up with two older sisters. And yes, all their hand me downs came to me. Yes, everything. If my mother could get away with putting me in a dress to wear, she would have done it, but she never did. For example, how many male children do you know growing up, wore shoes that went up past their knees? Yes, these were the shoes I had to wear, and I wore them proudly because of our circumstances. Although, amusing my shoes never fit me.
I didn't have many toys to play with, so I wandered around the forest to amuse and entertain myself. I can remember when I was about six years old, I found a stream near my home, where I use to go and play with frogs. I thought it was the most amazing stream. I use to carry the frogs back and forth to my home in a shoebox. They were the closest thing to a friend I ever had to play with. I could have played with my sisters, however, getting tied up with rope and being left alone in the forest all day was not my idea of fun.
I can remember one magical day in my life; my parents went out and purchased a brand new refrigerator. I must say it wasn't the refrigerator that was magical to me. It was the box the refrigerator came in that was magical. I was allowed to have the box. I was so excited. I vigorously dragged the refrigerator box into the forest. I passionately covered the box with plastic-garbage bags. Then I carefully fastened down the garbage bags with duct tape, and there it was. I had my own, "little home away from home."
There was a small black and white television in our garage. I carried the television out to my new home made from the box. Then I got a bunch of electrical cords, and I dragged them out to my new home. Once I got everything plugged in from the house to my new little home, I got my new television turned on. I will never forget how long it took me to adjust the antenna on the television; I was only able to get two channels to work and that was enough for me. This was a very magical day for me. I turned it on and began watching a big yellow bird on television. The bird was teaching others how to read and write. I had no paper and pencils; however, I managed to find a stick outside by my new home and used the ground to practice these new reading and writing skills. I was learning. Each day I would watch this big yellow bird on television, and each day I continued to learn more and more.
A few years passed by, my parents told us we were moving, we moved approximately 150 miles away, we moved to a small town in New York State. My parents went out and got me registered to go to school. I admit I was excited to be able to go to school. I enjoyed learning on my own. A few days passed and my parents bought me a lunch box, paper, and pencils.
Another magical day came to me, it was my first day off school, I will never forget that day. The teacher brought me inside and introduced me to the other children in the classroom. I could not figure out why she was doing that? All the students were laughing at me. I eventually found out why they were laughing. They were laughing at my clothes I was wearing. This was the day, I found out my mother had given me my sister's clothes as hand me downs to wear. Yes I found out this day my mother gave me girl's clothes to wear. I didn't know. I couldn't wait to go home that day. Something didn't seem right.
Growing up as a child I always thought something wasn't right. I always knew that I was different. Other children enjoyed playing football, basketball, baseball and other various sports and activities. I had no interest in them at all. I enjoy hiking and exploring deep in the mountains. I enjoy the outdoors; nature.
My very first job in this world was a paper route; I delivered ninety six (96) newspapers every morning before school. I earned approximately $34.00 a week delivering newspapers six (6) days a week. While having this job, I was able to buy a bicycle, clothes, camping and hiking supplies, and many other items. I had to buy things on my own because my family survived on one income. I lost my father when I was young. He was involved in an accident.
If I wanted a nice pair of pants to wear to school, I had to buy them myself. I was very proud of my mother; she worked very hard to make ends meet. My family struggled financially.
My second job in this world, at first, was a dream come true. I worked on a dairy farm five (5) days a week. I was in charge of taking care of the animals on the farm. I fed and took care of the farm animals, and I earned $4.50 an hour. I worked there for many years. One day I went to work, and I found out during the night one of the cows gave birth to a beautiful male cow. The people on the farm called the little cow, "Spot" because he was born with a little white spot on his forehead. He was such a cute little cow. All the farm help loved him. I took care of this young male cow for approximately four (4) weeks. He was the most beautiful thing you would ever see. Sadly, one day my employer told me he had sold him to another farmer. I had to get him ready for this new owner because the other farmer was going to be picking him up later that day. A few hours had passed by, and the other farmer arrived to pick him up. I assisted the other farmer loading him onto his trailer. I will never forget as long as I live as to what happened next. This farmer destroyed him in front of my eyes and my employer's eyes. The farmer picked up a pressurized nail gun from the back of his truck and placed it on the little cow's head and pushed a button and drove a nail right through his head. Unknown to the farmer, the young baby male cow had a name. I couldn't' believe what I saw. I took care of this baby cow, and he was my friend. I have a confession. I had to quit that day. Although, I know in farming this happens behind the scenes and not always seen, but I just happened to be there at the time. My heart will NOT be a part of it; not this type of activity. I had to quit I couldn't bear seeing something like this happen again.
I graduated from high school in 1989. After high school, I spent a few years wandering around the Adirondack Mountains. Once I returned home from the mountains, I browsed the newspapers looking for a job. I needed a job and had to have a job so I took the fastest job I could get. I took a job working as a wash boy for a local car dealership. I washed cars for approximately three (3) months. Then one day the owner of the company asked me if I would like to try selling the cars I washed. I agreed to try selling automobiles to customers. I have to admit to all of you, I couldn't believe I was getting paid to talk to people. I met many interesting people selling automobiles. I enjoyed all the conversations we would have together. Over a time period of approximately ten (10) years, I went from car salesmen, to a used car manager, to a new car manager, to a finance manager, and then to the general business manager. I can remember when I was the general business manager; Bill Clinton was the United States President.
Here is a message to Mr. Clinton ...
"When you were the United States President, our economy was strong, people had jobs, property, and people had money to buy automobiles. Then I watched shortly after your campaign as the United States President. I watched the economy begin to change. I watched the economy begin falling. I would be honored to speak with you behind closed doors; I would like to ask you a question. I have a question here and now."
Here is a question for every leader in the world today ...
"Are you trying to destroy this world?"
Here is a message for every leader in the world today ...
