Once I did not write
25 days
Fasting from the pen
A duration
Commemorating your life
Short, but
Seldom live
As well as you dared
With strength and courage
Calling us into action
Demanding that we
Truly live
Each moment abundantly
Not a day has passed
Without my thoughts turning to you
That long walk from
A dark car to your grave
The image of you
In your father's arms
Reminds me of your
Huge life and the
Love you gave

The Hottest Race

Here's something crazy:  The Badwater Ultramarathon! A 135 mile race through California's Death Valley where the temperatures get up to 126 degrees during the race! Click here to see a 1 minute, 37 second Yahoo! News video.  Amazing stuff.
