Our Hero

As we rapidly approach the 24th anniversary of Robert's death, it seems fitting that his story has gone live on Alex's Lemonade Stand's Hero network this week.

I think back on the last 24 years of my life, over half of them with Peter by my side, and it seems amazing to me that so much time passes by so quickly.  Looking at 1/12 of that- the lives of Bobby and Maya, or 1/6 of it, nearly the time since Nicholas and Sophia were born  (or the 1/8 of that since Alexander was born- I am toppled over by the weight of how those years pass in a mere breath.

And yet... So much changes and so much stays the same.  For those of us touched by the miracles of lives lived and lost, a piece of us is different.  Irrevocably so.  Forever.
