Closing Comment : “The friend in my adversity I shall cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunrise of my prosperity” – Ulysses S. Grant

This is what we do men, day in and day out is support each other – it’s no small thing to stand next to a man and encourage him when he’s struggling. That support will give him the confidence knowing men will be there by his side when the real troubles in life take place. We all can expect hardship and challening times to a variety of extent, but each can face unknown issues knowing that we have guys by our side. This is what I appreciate about everyone that shows up. /Kodak Out!
