Futurama Backblast: The Day After

9-12-19 | Memorial Park | Futurama AO

QIC: Khakis (Respect)

The Pax gathered promptly at 5:30 AM with Khakis on the Q and just running up to start on time.  It was cloudy, with lightning in the sky and rain on the way.  

Khakis gave the F3 mission and disclaimer and took the Pax on a very short mosey down the hill at Memorial Park where a huge American Flag display was put up by the Omaha Rotary.  Khakis pointed on that on the day after an event like 9-11 and the day after and day after that – it is so important that we are present for our friends and loved ones, #neverforget .  It was a sobering sight to see all those flags.  That was Warmarama.   He then took the Pax back up the hill to begin

The Thang: A 2 Man Grinder (see attached). One mam did the exercise as his partner climbed 3 flights of stairs ran up and around the Memorial Flag Pole (still at half-mast) and then back down 3 flights to relieve his partner.

A special shout-out to Honey Badger for 16 years of sobriety TODAY! Aye!!!!!

Prayers for a friend of Chicklets and Khakis who recently had heart attack and is recovering.

Finally Kkhakis reflected on 9-11 and the day after and we hold dearly the picking up on the six.  Running back and making sure our brother is not running alone.  Many first responders attempted the ultimate picking up of the six as they ran into buildings others were running out of.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and friends and loved ones of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice that day.   May we never forget.
