When we see good people suffer it changes us.

Unfortunately, these changes are usually temporary.

We all hug our kids extra tight for a few days. We hold the door for an extra person. We let the person with fewer items ahead of us at the supermarket. And then we go back to being rushed, losing patience and sweating the small stuff.

My tribute to Brendan is to make those positive changes last longer, because this kind of lasting longer is within my control and it just makes sense to me. I'm changing forever because of this. There is no fairness. There is no explanation for what is happening. And each day is a true gift to all of us.

I'm never going to take that for granted again.
