Everybody deserves a second chance at life. Some do not deserve quite a free second chance, but most do. For me, doing what I love the most to change the world wouldn’t be about the pay or the benefits, but for the satisfaction of knowing I did something to help. I would and I will help wounded military returning from battle. It has been my passion since I first watched the film adaptation of Pearl Harbor. Above all else, our wounded soldiers deserve a second chance more than anyone I could ever think of. They put their lives on the line to protect our country and even though we may not always agree with their missions, they are still braver than anyone I know. When they come back with severe injuries and missing limbs, they may feel that they have no place in this world anymore, that they are useless. My sole goal in life is to show them that they are worth so much more, that they can do whatever it is that they feel impossible. I want to be a physical therapist working with wounded soldiers to help give them the second chance they deserve, to help show them that even though they are wounded and may never do the things they used to, that they are still the strongest men and women out there and that they can accomplish anything if they put their mind to it. I want to show them that they still matter.
