  • My name is Jimmy Fincher and I was born and raised in Georgia.

  • I’m fourteen years old and I love anything to do with sports.

  • I hate cooked peas. And oh, yeah— I absolutely, positively cannot be destroyed.

  • Well, hearing that last part, if you didn’t think I was crazy, then I’d think you were crazy.

  • Jimmy Fincher

    I’ll be the first to admit what a ridiculous statement it is— it sounds like something from a bad comic book.

  • If someone ever told me that they couldn’t be destroyed, I wouldn’t think they were crazy because I’d just assume they were kidding.

  • But— whether fortunately or unfortunately, I haven’t quite figured out yet— that little statement is as true as saying that cooked peas taste like sewage and smelly feet.

  • It is very true, and because of it, my life has been taken away from me.

  • Jimmy Fincher

    I grew up in a happy home.

  • I probably sound like an adult saying that, but it’s the only way to put it because my growing-up years in that home are very over.

  • I have a mom and a dad and an older brother named Rusty.

  • There’s no doubt about the happiness of my life growing up in that very humble two-story house in Duluth, Georgia.

  • The whole house was made of wood, and despite the constant pecking of those dang woodpeckers, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to be raised.

  • To me, the definition of warmth and safety will always be that home.

    My mom’s name is Helen, and she was raised on a farm, like all good mothers should be.

  • She has curly, dark hair, and Dad has always said that she was the prettiest girl to ever walk the fields of South Carolina, and I believe him.

  • My dad’s name is J.M., which I’ve always thought a little funny.

  • Of course, to me, he’s Dad, but to others he’s always been known as two letters of the alphabet.
