Megan Martin was always a bird that reminded me of me.

Tonight I know she has been in Costa Rica,

and I remember my adventures in 2000 and in 2016

successes and failures

mountains I ran to the top singing

valleys I tumbled to the bottom.


I am so proud of this girl Megan,

my first Berea friend.

A believer in hope,

a breather for a world needing to heal.
