Against the odds

You never know who you'll meet on the train. A young man stood next to me a couple months ago. After the fifteen minute ride we'd realized  that we were neighbors. Oddly enough, he works for a company that secures sponsorships for some of my favorite sports teams (Ducks & Timbers). So we kept in touch and once in a great while I'd bump into him on the train. Little by little he shed light on how he became so successful by the age of 24 and it's nothing short of amazing... his kind amazing; the strength of family and friends.
