Two people have stood by me for a long time. The first I realized as a friend long ago and have built up a lasting friendship with him over the decade-plus that I've known him. The second I've known longer, and although I call him friend now, the realization of that moment came much later, but is still no less poignant. There have been ups and downs, moments of gratitude and indignation, arguments and debates, kind words and curse words. Through all this, I would like to think that it's all been for something and that I'm closer to these two people despite my own inadequacies and failings. This is for them: KJ & KS. Inspiration, conscience, better half, friend.
