My Papa's jacket

Leather jacket

I received this jacket after my grandfather, my papa, passed. This special Harley Davidson coat is made of leather and many years of riding. When I was younger my papa would take me on rides anywhere and everywhere. I even had my own riding coat and helmet with pink flames that he got me for one of my birthdays. Every memory or picture I have of him he’s wearing this coat. My papa was and still is the most fearless and one-of-a-kind person I have ever encountered. His love for motorcycles was around for as long, if not longer, than I've been alive. When I was little, my papa would always be in his garage where he kept all of his motorcycles. I remember one time when I went to hang out with him, and I ended up falling asleep on one of them. The picture my papa took of me is lucidly molded in my memory. I keep this special coat hanging up in my room and wear it from time to time. It gives me confidence and peace. My special object is like my shield. I am one of the luckiest people who has a object with so much meaning and I'm forever grateful to have inherited this item. I hope I have it forever.
