Dont give up on your dreams
Rut, Marcus, and Wizard, first I’d like to thank you guys for your service. I come from a military family and we are grateful for men like you. My name is Mike and I’m from central Ohio. My never quit story is probably not your typical one that people write in. In June of 2015 I was sworn in as a police officer, it was the greatest day of my life. I finally get to start my career and make a difference out there. About 9 months later in March of 2016 I was informed by the chief I had to resign or be fired due to a complaint against me. I resigned the next day. It was the worst day of my life. I cried and wondered what I was going to do next. I decided I was going to apply to more police departments and get hired again somewhere else. A year and a half goes by of applying, interviews, and backgrounds checks and only being told you haven’t been selected for employment. I was told this complaint against me looked bad and that’s why I wasnt being hired. I eventually found out that the details of the complaint were false and letting me go was a mistake. This only added to the pain that someone would make something up and make me look bad. I often wondered if I should just give up, go back to school and start a different career. Finally in November of 2017 I was sworn in again as a police officer. The point of me telling this story is that life is unfair and things wont always go your way. If you want something bad enough, don’t let anything get in your way. I always believe that every set back is set up for a comeback. Keep up the great work gentlemen, NEVER QUIT!
