A ten-year-old ribbon

A ten-year-old ribbon

I wear this ribbon once a year. I knew Mario de la Peña before he was murdered in mid-air by the Cuban air force. It has been ten years now, and his family and friends still miss him.

(EDIT: I previously linked to this article but I’ve replaced the link with a better one.)

    If you ever happen to come by a copy of that DVD, let me know, ok?

    Man… 10 years. Really doesn’t feel like that long.
