Poem from the mentor
To the new Sea Rescue/Lifeguard Capt.
As a man finds his love and passion in life and leaves his shadows behind. Ghost and demons from the past may resurrect and appear that prey on your deepest fear. Blind you will be as they are hard to see for what they are. Surround yourself with Angels and love from on high and agents of good in your brotherhood.
Yea, through the valley and waters and shadows of death you have journeyed and the scars that you have to bear. Fear not; believe in thy self as you have learned from your losses and those of others that were so dear.
It’s the not the winners nor losers to be measured and weighed. It’s the survivors that can pass these skills and wisdom to the next generation for another day. Lead by example that they will survive, it will sooth the soul while you’re alive.
Know your wrongs and weaknesses from within; judge not these false from other men, nor judge not of creed, culture nor color of skin. Measure and weigh the good intent of people from within. Peace and strength in your public service I send.
Rejoice for loyalty and love is your power, a savior of your soul in your final hour, a shield from the haunts of ghost of the past, the power of love and leadership for future generations you will lead that they to may last.
Godsspeed too you, the souls you lead, the ones you will save and those in need.
Dam... that signature looks like some kind of Kindergarten scribble grafitti.
