I appreciate all the advice and well wishes and prayers. I don't know how this is going to turn out. I'm not going to lie to you and pretend that I believe this will be a cake walk. I mean, I don't even know what a cake walk is. Is that some kind of event where you walk for charity and eat cake when you're done? Or maybe you eat the cake while you walk. I just don't know how it works. But I know this: I won't be eating any cake, and any walking I do will be more of a patrol than anything else.
Everyone says I should leave, Part of me wants to. But, my parents are staying, and I know I'm going to have to rescue them.
I love you guys, and I want you to say nice things about me if I die.
