A​nother day to live through. Better get started.


Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... Dyin' time's here. The future is not set, there is no fate but what we make for ourselves. It’s an insane world out there but in it, there is one sanity, the loyalty of friends. I find I’m so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only friendship can provide, friends at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friends and shake their hands. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope. I have this dream. It's about singing and dancing and making people happy. It's the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And I found a whole group of friends who have the same dream, and that makes us sort of like a family. The human spirit is more powerful than any drug and that is what needs to be nourished with work, play and friendship. These are the things that matter. Nothing’s better than the deep breaths after laughing hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for all the right reasons.

Money will come and go. We all know that. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room. Right here, right now. Salute, mi familia.

And remember, no one is a failure who has friends.
