2019 has been a tough year for me. With Optimus I attempted to build a team of supporters. Vehicles, cosplayers, and total strangers – I invited them to join our adventure with Optimus. To join us at shows, to help charities and non profits, and to bring a community of fans together under Optimus Prime. But instead, this year has shown me how much hate is out there. And how many people are in it for themselves. How many people can be overcome with greed and hatred and disgust. I am disgusted from what I’ve experienced with people I supported and trusted. This year has shown me that our journey with Optimus is ours, and ours alone. No one else deserves to be part of it. What we do is in the best interests of our family. I’m done partnering with people who will ultimately seek to destroy us.
Ania suggested writing letters of ‘forgiveness’, printing and burning them. The following section is a summary of the 4 letters I wrote to 4 people who clearly seek to rob from me and our successes. People who attempt to destroy what we’ve built.
And to them I say – you will never stop the Fiduccia’s. We WILL succeed. We WILL make a positive impact. And I WILL rebuild the losses in my family once again.
Never give up hope Ryan. Never give up hope.
