One Passion, One Love, One Dream . . .
It was a regular old Monday, but only this Monday it was my birthday.
I had woke up around 9:00 am. I was so excited it was time to go to the local BMX store. It took awhile to find the right bike, but finally I had found the bike I wanted! it was a “Next” bike, it was red,white, black and a little bit of gray. I knew it was the bike I wanted, when we got home, I got on,and my feet didn’t touch the ground, but “I didn’t let the little things in life slow me down”.
But that didn’t matter I may have been short but that didn’t stop me. As I grew older I got taller the more I rode the better I got going faster and faster before I knew it, I was flying steep hills pedalling as fast as could.
But now today its an old bike that has a rusty chain barely good enough brakes seats been chewed up by dogs but still goes fast this bike means alot to me one reason is because my uncle use to BMX the second reason is because my mom & dad got me this bike. Bike riding is my way of getting away from every day life it helps me when I have a rush of adrenaline.

My favorite sense is hearing for many reasons. One reason is because I couldn’t hear what people say.Two is because I could hear the crackling of a camp fire.Three is because I couldn’t hear The fired alarm or tornado alarm.
My life would be different because I couldn’t hear any thing i can’t hear what people say,I can’t hear the crackling of the fire,or a fire/tornado alarm.Is very important to the human body. We need to hear certain things like alarms people music etc.

Jason Thayer Burns is my hero. He’s a great man for many reasons but mainly because of his determination and passion for what he loves. He’s a great family man, business man, musician but most important, my uncle.
Jason Burns was born in Dallas, Texas but raised in Louisiana. He was always an independent person that had a love of music. At a young age, Jason’s parents bought him his first guitar along with music lessons. After the first lesson, the music teacher quickly realized that he was a natural. By the next lesson, Jason had already taught himself and again the teacher was amazed at how quickly Jason picked up the guitar. By the time Jason was in high school and college, he was already in several bands playing the guitar and the upright bass.
In the early 1990’s, The Road Kings heard about Jason and asked him to join their band. Jason agreed and moved to Houston, Texas. After a short time with The Road Kings, their band started touring Europe. It was then, that Jason discovered that his upright bass would not sound as good at the end of the tour as it did in the beginning. This is when Jason took the old saying to heart, “If you want something done right, do it yourself!” He came home from tour and started working on building his own upright bass. After his fellow musicians heard the sound of the upright bass that he created, they started asking Jason to build them one. This gave Jason the idea to start his own business. Music was his passion in life and starting a company was his way of doing what he loved while building a career.
Today, Jason Burns has a thriving business in Orange, California. It has been almost 20 years since Jason built his first bass and although it has not been easy, he has continued to build upright basses, as well as launching another line of guitars. He is well-known throughout the music industry and admired by many great musicians.
