Presentation to Moped

The Bridge Builder

By Will Allen Dromgoole


An old man going a lone highway.

    Came, at the evening cold and gray,

    To a chasm vast and deep and wide.

    Through which was flowing a sullen tide

    The old man crossed in the twilight dim,

    The sullen stream had no fear for him;

    But he turned when safe on the other side

    And built a bridge to span the tide.

    “Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,

    “You are wasting your strength with building here;

journey will end with the ending day,

    You never again will pass this way;

    You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide,

    Why build this bridge at evening tide?”

    The builder lifted his old gray head;

    “Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,

    “There followed after me to-day

    A youth whose feet must pass this way.

    This chasm that has been as naught to me

    To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;

    He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;

    Good friend, I am building this bridge for him!”

In F3 we frequently talk about the High Impact Man, or HIM.  A HIM is a Disruptor (someone that challenges the status quo) who is committed to making forcible contact to strong effect.  They take the Daily Red Pill, a daily commitment to Accelerate Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith.  It isn’t about being the fastest or the strongest, but the Accelerating Man is one that is committed to increase the pace of movement.  Today, we celebrate one of these men.  Moped became an F3 brother at the age of 72.  He shared that at that point, he had never really worked out and could only do 4 push-ups.  Now, he’s able to do 40 (more than a lot of our PAX :::cough:::cough:::Monkey:::cough::::).  Moped has been a consistent F3 Florence PAX and even if we will no longer see him by the shovel flag, I hope that he’ll still be around for some 2nd and 3rd F events.  Moped, thank you for being an inspiration to us all brother!
