Mission statement and disclaimer given.
PAX moseyed up to Level 3 for…
10 Sun gods forward, 10 reverse (IC) [Crab Cakes may have done some Moroccan Nightclubs at first; whatever gets the shoulders loosened up.]

10 Copperhead squats (IC)
PAX then moseyed to the other side of Level 3 for…
It’s been exactly 1 year since YHC posted to F3 for first time. It was a brutal beatdown at Cornwallis’ Nightmare (GSO!), featuring a 3-man grinder. So PAX did the same in honor of that momentous day.

On a very serious note, I shared that a coworker of mine took his life 10 days ago, leaving a wife and 4 children. Khakis shared that a good friend’s 21-yr old son had just done the same.
1) I urge you, if there’s something going on in your life, big or small (small can become big), to talk to someone. Maybe it’s a friend, maybe it’s a mental health professional, but please talk to someone.
2) Tonight Show pressed the PAX to not walk around with our heads in our phones. Be aware of people around you, and you will find an opportunity to serve, as The Plague was able to do other day.
3) If you, or someone you know, needs counseling, reach out to Hootenanny, Honey Badger, or my wife. All are mental health professionals, and can either help, or refer you to someone who can.
TAPs for Six Shooter, who asked for prayers for him and his wife as they go through a rough time.
(PAX – we always need to work on our marriage; see #3 above if you need some extra help)
YHC led the group out in prayer.
Brothers, it was a privilege to lead you again.
