In Honor of My Dad

USAF retired MSGT Ronald "Doc" Colon served 30 years as a paramedic. He traveled the world with wife, 6 kids and a menagerie of pets. He taught us how to learn. When I wanted to be a cheerleader my junior year of high school, he transferred the family to Iran. He said he didn't have anything against cheerleaders, but I would gain more survival skills by seeing the world. The biggest lesson? "Don't judge, you never know what they're going through. And since you're so scrawny, don't fight. Run."
