Check in on a buddy this week. EH somebody you haven’t seen in a while. Encourage someone. Build a brother up. Squash a beef. Make an apology. Work toward unity. Invest in friendship. Schedule a lunch. Take a risk. Make a commitment. Tell somebody you love them. Be known.

Sometimes life is beautiful. Sometimes life is hard. Both are better with friends and brothers. Circle up, in and out of the COT (fist bump).
