Many people with good intentions approached me saying. “Life will never be the same”, or “you will never get over this.” Yes, I will never be the same-and the truth is, I never want to be the same. To be the same would not honor Zachariah’s life. It is important that some good things come out of what has been so tragic. I don’t want to be a causality. I want to be a man who courageously faces his losses and who doesn’t loose faith. Zachariah lived in the moment, and his passing has brought me to this moment. I am much less afraid and I have gratitude amid this incredible heartache. I am writing because it is a part of my healing and I am writing because I want you to know about this amazing young man.
