Luc Besson - Aquatic Upbringing

Luc Besson was born in Paris to parents who were both SCUBA diving instructors. Their unconventional occupation had a huge influence on Luc and he spent most of his teen years hoping to be a marine biologist. When a diving accident left him unable to dive anymore, Luc changed his focus to filmmaking. He worked odd jobs in the French industry before moving to the US for a few years. When he returned to France, Luc started his own film company.

Luc Besson married Milla Jovovich later that year but they divorced in 1999. Luc also wrote and directed La Femme Nikita, The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc, and produced Madonna's Love Profusion music video.

    Hi, my name is Austin312so, and I want to talk to all of you about Sohan S. Thandi Foundation. Well there was someone named Sohan S. Thandi, and he was my grandpa who passed away in 2015 September 25 on my parents anniversary. He had cancer, which was spread around his body. He would try to keep it a secret, but sooner we all found out that he had cancer, this cancer was really bad whenever he drank water, it would stay in his body and go straight to his legs and feet and it was swollen. He was a great father, Army Sgt, and also a great grandpa to his grandchildren. He had 7 children, which 6 were girls, and 1 boy. We would meet him every time he'll be really happy to meet us kids.On his last day, he wanted everyone to be happy and don't worry about anything he taught me a lot to be strong and also it made me follow his footsteps and join Army Cadets. I am making this foundation for him and all the children and adults who have cancer to be cancer free. Thank you for listening.

    depends, in my case, when i daydream it tends to be more hopeful; things i wanna do, things i wanna be in a more positive light. meanwhile, night dreaming tends to be more of my mind rummaging through regrets and missed opportunities. day dreaming gets me through everything
