I also remember seeing this, which helped a little bit.
Any fool can destroy; it takes real courage and conviction and effort to rebuild one 5-gallon plastic bucket at a time. And the dream can be realized; hopefully for more than a moment, someday.
And then 5 years later, I saw this, which also helped. It was the first Show I ever saw, and then I started watching, and then I started participating, and eventually I stopped numbing through life. In retrospect, there's been a long chain of connected events...from massive scale destruction and rebuilding to very small...that lead to the way things are for me today. So strange to see from that perspective.
I'm so grateful for so many things.
