First of all, a shout-out to my brother, who just graduated bootcamp. Awesome way to go!

That also puts a much nicer spin on today than there has been for the past two years, although I’ll never forget that, even when I’m in a country where I don’t speak the language, helping a few guys put up festival buildings. What better way to remember a tragedy than to help bring about future joy?
