Today is my birthday.
I no longer look at my birthday as the point of reference as to when I truly became alive in the timeline of my life.
The days after talking with Adam when I felt I had had enough and the fight in me started to erode, I always referred back to the silent phone calls we shared and the message he conveyed – “You put your toe on the line and you fight like hell.”
Never before had the words:
United under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.
Ever had more meaning to me.

What makes one man quit and another fight?
I was in the drive-thru at a Sonic when I got a phone call from an unknown number.
I answered it.
It was my doctor.
