“I remember I was at this weird place in life, in college… I mean college is a weird time. It’s that transition, and there’s always a girl involved, and there’s always the whole life story, of what am I going to do with the rest my life involved. And I’m driving down this mountain late at night and the moon is pretty much the only other light, other than the headlights, and it’s this windy road and I’m coming back down to San Diego and I’m listening to James Taylor… and that one moment, for me, was a defining moment. Because I mean, I’ve been to a James Taylor concert and I felt super out of place, so it wasn’t so much the idea that these are songs I’ve heard on the radio and everyone knows them. Sometimes that song that you’ve heard a lot of times it just somehow grabs you, and that was kind of a moment for me.”

In the midst of Friends.
Voicing out should have, maybes, could haves.

In the midst of Lover,
Speaking on love, spectacular feats, broken promises.

In the midst of Brothers,
being reminded of holding on, going strong, brotherhood.

In the midst of Sisters,
talking about encouragements, not giving up, breaking through.

In the midst of laughter, tears and hope.
I saw people, learning to breathe again.
Learning how to die, learning how to see, learning how to trust once again.

In the midst of it all, stood a man.
and you, through passing on. Defined a moment.
Defined what it is to live. what it is to be alive.

In the midst of it all.
i saw a hope through your eyes. a hope to change the world.

and you did.
