I never met you, but someone did.

I never met you, but someone did.

I never knew your valor, your fear, your wounds, or your struggle, but someone did.

“We’re sorry to disturb the important work going on,” Commander Gerome replied, “We have a bit of an alarming situation down here on earth. I realize you work for Russia but do you have a moment to check on something for us?”   . . .
