Johnathon Sandusky writes about different things going on in his life and how he's enjoying the start of his summer vacation from school.

Tues., June 17, 2008, 10:31 p.m., D.S.T.~

Dear Journal~

Hey!  Johnathon here.  Can't sleep, so I decided to write in here.

Watched that stupid "AGT"; it was awful, to say the least.  Most of the acts sucked; there were a few good ones, but none really stood out.  Oh, they had this one fat guy singing opera who was okay, but I am not into opera.  He did have a good voice, though.

Didn't see Ronee' on television:  don't know if that is good news or not.  Oh, well.  I'll find out either later tonight if daddy calls or sometime tomorrow.  I hope she did make it; she deserves to. 

Enjoying my summer vacation. Feels great to sleep in until noon (or later), and able to do whatever I please, when I want, and how I want, with no teachers to nag me to death.  Also, no homework to do; free to do my own thing, with no constraints!

I made it through the CMA Music Festival; performed on Saturday night, killed 'em, as they say.  I had the whole place rockin'; it felt great to have the people yelling/cheering for me.  I got all the glory too, not just my sister, Ronee'.  I was on equal footin' with her; I felt like a superstar, too! :)

I sang twice; both times the audience loved me.  I even signed autographs, but it didn't take long for me to get weak, tired, so I fell asleep about an hour after I started signing autographs. 

I hope the fans didn't think I was a snob, but I have this stupid MD; when it acts up I have to lie down or take care of things, or else I can get into trouble if I don't watch myself.  It's a real pain!!

I got to meet some new stars:  Taylor Swift, Bucky Covington, Kellie Pickler (she's kinda' stupid, but she has a great singing voice! LOL), "Sugarland", others.  They said I was cute; I hope they weren't saying that just because I'm in a chair!!  That really annoys the snot outta me when people notice my stupid chair first before they see me!!

I am NOT my disability; I'm a person who happens to have a disability!!  When are people ever going to learn that???

In a little over a week, I'll be fifteen and a half.  In just six months, on the 26th of December, I'll be sweet sixteen.  I will be able to drive or go on a date, if God allows me to live that long.  He's let me live this long now; I've lived 11 years longer than what doctors predicted. 

I am a living, talking, breathing miracle, and I hope I have plenty more of days ahead of me; I am not done with my mission here on earth!!

Well, I am gettng skeepy--*skeepy*??--, so I'll go now.  I am going to try to get some shuteye; I plan on sleeping over a million hours tomorrow.  I am realllly tired!!  Busy today, went to the airport earlier, then out to eat, still full.  Ate at Olive Garden; had lasagna and salad; really good!  Until later, this is Johnathon signing off; take care and God bless!  Love you!

~Johnathon. :D

Johnny is one of my favorites...

A touching write and a realistic look at the life of's sad but true many people do notice a person's disability first, especially if they are confined to a wheel chair, crutches, walker etc. Anyway, I love Johnathon's attitude, I too hope he lives a long, full, and prosperous life...well done!

I can't believe people ask such questions, on a happy note, I love Sugarland too, they rock!
Reviewed by Felix Perry 6/18/2008
The sad part of disabilities is that the accompaniments such as canes, wheelchairs, walkers etc are always what most people see first, it is hard to see past these and get to know the person but that is what we should all try our best to do.

It is unfortunate but people will always notice the disability first, it must be human nature, I do but I as quickly let it pass to see and know the person, Johnathon has a lot of living to do and I hope life is good to him. Thank you for sharing.

Newfie Hugs are on the way, Rose

First Johnathon, that cat over there seems to walk and walk but going nowhere, like frustration inside oneself, they keep going anf going and going, even if we hadn't been eating Energizer batteries.
And please, when someone ask you "whats wrong with you?" ask them whats wrong with them, shaking your head as feeling pity for them.

I understand his frustrations, but I beg to differ about Kellie Pickler, I dont think shes stupid at all...
God Bless

Johnny is a child with a disability, not his disability - don't you just hate that, when people ask "What's wrong with you?" Grrrrrrrr - noticing IT first instead of YOU? Can understand Johnny's frustration - been there, done that! An excellent write - well done -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
