Not too many words can set anything in motion.
I know it has been a long time since my last blog entry; well not too long but recent events struck me to write today. A good friend of mines Corey Lynch passed away. This happen a few days ago; he left this realm in his home; hopefully it was a peaceful journey.
Let me tell you a few things. Corey was one of the most intelligent, thought-provoking, kind, charismatic, beautiful human being I had the absolute honor of knowing. I really mean those words, he was all of those things and a little more. The flaws he had made him more human which in turn showed the greatness of his character. A true measure of a man.
He was a native of the American Virgin Islands; a citizen who lived in the mainland for most of his adult life. He was teacher of history, social justice, talented steel drum player, writer (fiction & non-fiction), and a solid chess player. A former football player but also an intellectual who would verse with anyone on any subject but with a humble vide and non-judgmental tone. He loved the game of dominos as well as the game of baseball. We would argue for hours over the Cardinals and Cubs rivalry as he was a strong Cubs fan (yes I know that’s a shocker lol) and I a Cardinals fan. He loved his cigars, fine cigars along with his guns in which he displayed at targeting ranges. He was an everyman yet wasn’t an “anyman.” He was a good friend, a very good person.
The Fairfax County Juvenile Domestic Courts lost a great person; but the community of Washington D.C. lost a potential souljah who would fight for social justice with pose and intelligence with sound reasoning. This man; this great man will be missed…
I’m sorry I can’t type anymore.
