It makes me think that that the world still has opportunities for greatness while surrounded by war, powerful rulers who still believe that killing a woman is not murder, that girls shouldn't be educated. These girls and boys and skating, like I did when I was young. Skating, like surfing, has formed me into the person I am. I read this and had to supreme tears. This is courage. This is hope. This fighting darkness with light. I wish I was a millionaire and I could send them 20 carvers, 50 street boards, parts, pads, helmets and enough money to keep the security strong enough to ensure their future.

Eat shit, walk it off, try the trick again. Finally sticking it felt oh so good!
