Tell me a little bit about what your life has been like for these past several weeks.

Order flowers and arrange to have a friend or family member in the area place the flowers for them there. He has no idea now long it actually takes to finish boards and match. My experience with non members has been so much more meaningful and caring. They get hazed, they get questioned all the time, they don't get sleep, they have people's lives in their hands and have to struggle to be confident in what they know, but not too egotistical to kill someone Give him the benefit of the doubt and some space.
