What Karter says
I sit here today as a proud business owner of Ameriton Freight & Logistics. AmeritonFreight.com
I sit here today with a clear mind and a clear body.
I sit here today because I chose to sit the bottle down and go for what truly makes me happy; my kids, family, and business success.
I share my story to inspire others to go for what they believe in and to NEVER let a setback be a reason to SIT DOWN!
Gonna break these chains around me, gonna learn to fly again, may be hard,
may be hard, but I’ll do it, when I’m back on my feet again.
When I’m back on my feet again, I’ll walk proud down this street again,
and they’ll all look at me again, and they’ll see that I’m strong.
Michael Bolton, When I am back on my feet again.
