Slow Pitch reminded everyone to Remember the Six. Don’t forget where you came from, who was there next to you when you were the Six, in the beginning and that you will always be the Six. “Happiness is only real when it’s shared” (Christopher McCandless). Also remember to do just “one more,” understanding that there are others, that wished they could be here, to do just the minimum and we can’t take that for granted.

Remember the Six!
