In the news, water, community and a summer of patience

Thanks in advance for reading and passing along these good news links — far and wide. Three different chapters of the same engagement story. Video highlights too.

Our Northside pool is still not open, sadly. Under construction still.

But we’ll be outdoors at 6 pm at Citiparks Ammon tonight, (and every Tuesday and Thursday), weather permitting. Plus, we go to another site to play SKWIM with 3 summer teams as well.

And around the world,

Wonderful that the team and coach are out and in the light of day, but please don’t say, again, that “it is the best possible outcome.” Part of the outcome was the death in service of a gentleman / diver, and that should not be discounted.

Tremendous efforts from a team of super talented individuals from around the world. The entire ordeal is so hard to fathom.

Time to celebrate — and mourn. May peace come to all who return home. May future explorers always posses the wisdom, courage and lessons learned from these past weeks.
