It's been an eventful year, one we will never forget. We will always remember where we were and what we were doing September eleventh. We'll remember how parts of our lives were changed, then and now. We'll be closer as Americans and friends than ever before, for now we know that people exist that want to kill us just for that simple reason, that we are Americans and freedom loving people. To all my DLR friends, climbing partners, and even sparring partners, you are all valued and accomplished compadres. Merry Christmas to you all, and God bless us all.
