ROOT: The second reboot

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — So my second reboot has begun and I cannot wait. My body is a lot more broken down than it was when we were raising the boy and I can’t get around like I used to, but that isn’t going to stop me. I used to worry that I would not have anything to leave behind for the boy when I was gone. Now I am starting to realize that one of the greatest gifts his mother and I could have given him is something he will pass on to his son. That is the beauty of the reboot.
