This message is from a father who lost a 22-year-old, insanely optimistic son in May. His most passionate wish was that all of us could just get along and make this place better than we are doing now. As simplistic as it is, it is on behalf of my son, Derek, that I and his younger brother would like to convey this same sentiment for all to ponder:
May there be joy in all the lands this holiday season. Peace to all.
