So my Q date took a crazy turn of events. I already planned to pay tribute to my brother Martin. Which to be honest since loosing him 8 years ago, it’s just never gets easier. Just understand how to handle this time of year better. October 5, 2012 @9:30 pm. I’ll never forgot the date nor the time. I had my workout all prepared….then the awful heart wrenching news of Jacob Hancher. 23 year old MB Police office killed in the line of duty. A man dedicated to serving the public and protecting the public. So I altered my plan to honor Jacob.

Mosey to coupon pile and off to Parking lot. Typically I like to move around the AO but in lieu of time I decided to stick to the large parking lot.

Partner up for a Dora workout.

In between each completed set of Dora, Mosey to cross and complete 23 Incline or decline Merkins. I reminded the Pax every time why we were doing the Merkins. Jacob Hancher was 23 years old. Every merkin I wanted the Pax to remember why we did Merkins.

Prayers for Jacob Hancher, My brother Martin, Teachers, students, adminstrators.

Thanks O’douls for closing us out in prayer.

I took this moment to open up for the first time publicly about my brothers Suicide. I asked the Pax to take a moment and call a friend, family member, etc… that maybe in need. Someone who maybe on the edge of thinking there is no other option then to take ones own life. That phone call or invite might be the difference for saving someone’s life. I still struggle with that till this day. If only I made the call the night before his birthday instead of the usual birthday phone call. I’m not a man who looks for sympathy. Just figured it was time to share and maybe make a difference. We all play an important role in this world. Sometimes you have no idea the impact you are having on someone’s life. That little nudge someone needed to realize that you cared and they are loved. It’s amazing what the tiniest bit of love can do for ones life. Show some love and make a difference.

Peace,

Pikachu
