Thanks for writing this Gary. Although I don’t always agree with 100% of everything you say, things like “giving back” and preaching that things take time should resonate with everyone. It’s absolutely true. Life isn’t fair and isn’t not suppose to be and actually, it’s a fucking awesome thing!
So thanks for all that you do, good or bad, for the good outweighs it all. You build an important foundation in your statement; and since you have walked the walked, your voice carries a lot of weight.
More people in your position should give back and regardless of anything else, for that alone, you should be applauded. Keep up the good work!
