Aspirations are tricky things. We can spend our whole lives trying to achieve our goals, but many of us end up falling short. Micky Thornton didn’t fall short, though – not by a long chalk. Ever since he was a young boy, his one burning ambition was to build an incredible swimming pool. He never stopped trying to make his dream a reality, and when it finally came to fruition the result left his community spellbound.
At age ten, most of us have simple desires: we covet new toys, new books and a later bedtime. However, when Micky Thornton was little he wanted one thing, and one thing only: a gigantic swimming pool. But he was just a boy, and big ambitions like that would have to wait.
