We are always told to do what we love and we never work a day in our lives.  I wish to raise money to help start a business. I wish to open a game store here in Salem.  I plan on contributing funds to this task as well. More ...

Many of people in history set out to make their mark in the world. I wish to not only change my lot in life but also find a way to give back to the community anyway possible. I wish find a way that a business can not only profit but also make sure that the customer profits as well. I wish to works towards creating an environment that will allow people to be a community in a way and not just customers. Some of the long term goals is to be able to help out victims of bullying, homeschooling events which would allow kids to make connections, online learning. Even though this is a video game store, I would like for it to feel like a gaming / online community rather than just a game store. I love gaming even though sometimes i realize there are far better gamers then myself. I would like you to be a part of this dream. I eventually also would like to find a way to give to those who lost loved ones not in wars but in domestic events such as the theater shooting, school shootings, and find a way to pay tribute to the victims and also perhaps see if there is a way we can prevent these events from happening in the future by paying attention to the signs. You may ask what these things have to do with gaming and I will shed some lite on my opinion. I believe they are connected because these situations are typically related to some form of bullying and I do know what it is like to be bullied and I know others who have fallen victim to bullying, and typically it is because the person is different, unique, nerdy, geeky, that they are bullied and I am all of these things wrapped into one and thus through this business I hope to one day find a way to help not only the victims but those who bully as well because something is going on for them to feel they need control others. Anyways forgive me for going off topic. The game store will be a cozy place that people can conduct business but also do events and I would hope to work with other local business to promote community and not corporation. A friend taught me that it is far better to help the local business that needs more customers than the big wig. Shalom, live long and prosper
