CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Steam: It is an honor, as a man in his twenties, to be a part of a group of men where most are older than I. There have been times when I surely haven’t had my life together and I have been able to look to these older warriors for leadership and guidance. It is nice to know that I can seek them out and it also a great thing to be able to look up to them as role models.
Lillydipper: It is an honor for me to lock shields with the type of young men we have in F3. The zest and enthusiasm of these younger HIMs inspires me. I know the world is going to be ok when I see leaders like these grabbing the steering wheel. To have their respect amazes me. And to know that they will circle back to pick me up leads me to respect them the more.
