Sometimes, the Monster Wins

Sometimes, the monster drags you into the Dark Place and you do not come back.

Remember this. Fear the monster. Hate what it does. If it comes for you and you can fight it, fight it hard. The monster fights dirty. Be ready.

But remember this: Even if you go into the Dark Place and you do not return, even if the monster wins this time, you are loved. You are remembered. You areĀ  honoured.

Today I remember Adrian Burkey, for he is no longer alive to remember himself, and I have nothing else to say.
