This room is full of dangerous people. Dangerous people trained to cause harm with no hesitation. Dangerous people that I'm coming to call family.
I have a confession... My entire life I've struggled with social situations. I'm an introvert. Just the way it is. When it comes to large groups of people, I don't fare so well. I get anxious. I get the urge to leave. I get the feeling that I've gotta' escape. Walking into this room with all of these people put me at ease. People that I have sweat with. People that I have shared pain with. People that have pushed me, motivated me and taught me.
I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season and I consider your friendship such an incredible gift.
