Introduction
I am not a hero, possess no fortune, haven’t changed the course of mankind in any way.

I am unaware of any whose life has been permanently altered by knowing me, and for the most part I know nothing about their lives today.

I am not dead. Bets were surely placed on how long Id last.

Mine is a story the world could probably do without, but for me, it is one that must be told.
