Description:

Sometimes in my own imagination, I would be a hero like Link (the Legend of Zelda series), Alice Liddell (American McGee's Alice, Alice: Madness returns, and Alice: Otherlands), Merida (Disney's Brave), Mulan (Disney's Mulan), San (Princess Mononoke), and Cybersix (Cybersix). I was hoping that I would finish this by the 4th of July, but got stuck on making the perfect waving American flag. I used to be a colorguard (dancer waving huge flags) in a high school marching from my freshman to sophomore year. I tried to picture how I held the flag pole. I know the flag is too long, but I don't care. I wanted to draw a sword or a dagger in my hand and the nation's flag in the other, but didn't have the patience. Even though I don't have a crucifix, drew one as a precious possession. I don't go to church, but I DO believe in God. I can't cast Him aside because I feel He's alive in my heart. I believe Heaven exists, I believe Hell exists, and miracles in the Bible. I guess we're all heroic deep down. Not only in in battles, but also standing up for what you believe in, prove the world that you can do things right, and fighting towards success. All these years of Asperger's syndrome, I made my way through speech therapy, and here I am. I couldn't have done it without my parents, who did it out of love.

    We all have a handicap one way or another, the invisible ones are the most tricky. Just remember this kind of challenge is a great teacher and a preserver of spiritual grace if you let it. It is a blessing in a strange and sometimes unattractive appearance, but in the bundle you will find deeper understanding of universal soul than there is in the ordinary and mundane world.

    Great symbolic figure and statements. I feel a similarity to you, I didn't get diagnosed with Asperger's but felt like I had it and share similar beliefs.
