Day 21- Final Day

I apologize for the lack of updates, but do not worry, I will catch up tonight with one final post. I did not mean to leave everyone in suspense, it was just that there was quite a few things that came up to prohibit me from updating. (I'll tell you all about it tonight. It is rather amusing.)

Today is the day. The ride to Philadelphia. We are leaving the hotel here in Conshohocken in a little over an hour to ride into the city. I can't believe that this day is already here. I feel happily nervously excitedly elated. Basically, I don't know what or how to feel. I am now eighteen years old and I am completing one of my dreams. I had an idea and I have just witnessed its fruition. I just would like to everyone who followed Jamaal and I through our journey, and all those who kept us in their thoughts and prayers. This is something that I will never forget and has given me a lifetime of memories. I am truly grateful for that.

We have reached and surpassed our goal of $10,000, and in turn, received the matching donation of an additional $10,000, bringing our total to $20,000. Our new goal is now $25,000, so if you haven't already, every little bit will help. Thanks again for everyone's support. I PROMISE WE WILL POST MULTIPLE VIDEOS AND I WILL CATCH YOU UP ON EVERYTHING.

Love,
John and Jamaal.

P.S. I am sorry if none of this is coherent. This is probably just one of the greatest days of my life, so thoughts are fleeting.
