My nephew just finished bootcamp for the Coast Guard and we've all been talking about the change we can already see in his appearance, what we can hear in his voice, a difference in how he carries himself. Confident surely, but it seems something else is at work- Success. Someone that feels the path they are on is in fact the Right Path, not some haphazard trailblazing of earlier ventures. I have felt for many years that I have known what I wanted, what I wanted to be like- sure of what and who I am. But Successful? It is hard to stay strong and look adversity in the face and say, Yes, I am up for the task.

Congratulations Eric! We are proud of you and also thank you for reminding us about change and passion.
