As Featured On Katie Couric (taped 1/14) and:
Thank god/Buddha/the universe/goddess/Krishna/the great mother for you and Craig, Michelle. We are so f##%& grateful to have u both in our lives!
There are many of us in the world who choose to suffer in silence. We spend our days living a dismal existence—faintly aware of something greater, something deeper, something higher.
Once in a while someone among us rises and takes a stand—choosing not to accept what so-called ‘fate’ has to offer. Someone who chooses to be determined that he will not let things end this way, with a pitiful whimper.
Just before collapsing under the pressure, in one fellow swoop, he roars mightily and bellows, letting his yet unseen strength be heard.
From here the path begins and many follow—now having seen their own inner light and wanting to rise up.
This inner light, shown to me by sheer force by Craig several years back, was the spark that lit the fire of my recovery.
This is to commemorate Craig in all he has done and to remind us that had he not chosen to let out his mighty roar and dig himself out of his own struggles, we may all have been careening down the narrow and steep path to destruction right now.
Here’s to courage and the value of having guts, Craig.
Your lifelong student, Rob
“This inner light, shown to me by sheer force by Craig … was the spark that lit the fire of my recovery.”
I’m gratefull to you, because without you such deep feelings of connection with the world and gratefullness wouldn’t be possible. It’s better with girlfriend, we’re working on our intimacy daily, and I see a progress.
I find your honesty, straightforwardness, and self-accountability for your emotions, as well as your tenderness and empathy for others (and me) to be so lovely… and you need to know that it is not a common combination my dear! You are truly valued!
