  • Dear Dad

    “Dear Dad.”
    When I was 13 years old, I wrote my dad a letter. It was one of several letters I wrote to him during my childhood. But, it was more than just a letter. It was a desperate plea.

    When I was discussing this with my son, he said, “Wow, what an honorable way to die, trying to save your friend. He’s a silent hero.”
