Reno 2012 Memorial Service

Not sure what to say about 2012. It was a year of recovery and mixed emotions. Perhaps the most spiritually uplifting aspect of the entire week was watching the reaction of one woman who collected two of the flags meant to honor those who had passed. She took photos on the ramp in front of her box. She took photos with Strega after her win. She hugged Mike Houghton, the President and CEO of RARA. With her implicit permission, we were all able to enjoy the races. 2013 will be the 50th anniversary. I can hardly wait.
