Humans of SD – Chris Brand


What was your most important learning experience?

“One day my mom told me, she said, ‘I’ll always be there for you.’ And then I turned about 3 years old. She left me. She left to Arizona. She said, ‘I’ll come back when you’re ten years old.’ She never came back when I was ten years old. So that’s taught me a valuable lesson: that girls will never be there for you. My bros were always there for me, so therefore your bros will always be there for you. And, you know, my mom taught me good lesson and I’m happy she left, because now I’m with my step-mom. She’s the best mom I could have. That’s all I gotta say.”
