Goodbye, Jon Jon…


I’m ending my blogging break today because the universe just got darker. Only this morning, I was idling around on Facebook when I found out about the suicide of Jonathan (Jon Jon) Bartlett, found dead at the age of only 27 in his home.

I remember him from the time what he was just a kid, before growing up, before getting into the army, and losing his legs in Iraq, and despite this, bouncing back stronger than before.

But human strength has its limits, and I think that the events leading up to this were just too much for him.

Farewell, Jon Jon. You were a friend to many, and a hero to your country. Peace out.
