As the commute towards The Wreck began at 0500 hrs, there was reflection. May 12, 1983 YHC was born 7 weeks early at 5 lbs, spent several weeks in an incubator at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston gaining strength. The name Dustin given, later in life learning the name means “valiant fighter”.
Thirty-six years later a more mobile incubator also builds strength, known as The Wreck, and does so in a variety of ways: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Gratitude was the overwhelming emotion as the pax arrived and flag shoveled in the ground; 0530 approached.

Sometimes life can toss heavy burdens on us just like a heavy weighted vest was tossed on YHC for this bday Q. YHC has a mentor that focuses on asking questions of a wholistic life; dubbed the 4 square life consisting of emotional, spiritual, mental and physical. This helps as the weight of life becomes too much; there’s something greater to place trust and belief in something greater than self. Would need to think back to teen years or college where a single offering satisfied a challenge and growth opportunity for all of the “4 square life” listed above. While adulting; the only opportunity I’ve found that offers growth in all 4 areas is F3. Grateful.
