Growing up i was involved in boy scouts. the great outdoors, service projects, adventure and challenges were always on the agenda. learning the scout law at a young age instilled a desire within me to be good and to serve others. a scout is
clean and reverent
this is a pretty solid guideline and reminder of who i strive to be. @brucehough
“we don’t know all of our service men and women, but we all owe them.”
being a part of the #invictusgames the past 2 years has been an eye opener. my appreciation and admiration for those who serve has truly grown.
My song "hold on" is all about speaking out when you need to and asking for help. 3 out of 4 suicides are men, and over 500,000 men die each year from taking their own lives. let's start taking mental health more seriously. i'm proud to release my single alongside @movember and encourage you all to check out https://us.movember.com/ to learn more about the cause. thank you for your support. #movember"
After experiencing first hand the effects of suicide in my extended family i became curious of the human condition and how we could possibly reach a point where we felt there was no hope.
the thought of someone suffering in silence,feeling alone and feeling like there is no way out breaks my heart.
this video represents that isolated loneliness we can often feel. especially in the wake of traumatic events. but in the end it's about reaching out for help and reaching out to help others. when we connect as human beings we become stronger and we are able to share the burden that one might feel.
if you or if someone you know is going through a difficult time, don't be afraid to reach out.
hold on pain ends

Being a free agent for the first time in his career there was a lot of uncertainty for @brookslaich this past year. but every single morning, even in the off season i saw him wake up at the c***k of dawn to go skate and train hard. his passion, resilience, attitude and determination in the face of uncertainty was a true testament of his character and his love for the game.
and it all paid off! an incredible example to witness first hand how a true man handles adversity. doesn't complain, doesn't blame others, he takes action and his destiny into his own hands.
i am incredibly proud to call you my brother and i can't wait to come support you in wherever life takes you next 👊🏼
