Been working on saying this for a while but I can't seem to get the words right. Still aren't but I need to say it. I know I'm preaching to the choir here but be nice to each other y'all. That guy who had an amazing career as a drummer, and such a beautiful family, the one who I harbored a spark of envy toward... he battled demons every day and I had no clue until his life was taken. And now I'm wondering if I was nice enough to him in all of our interactions.
