About a week before I left for Afghanistan in 2007, I ended up heading to D.C. with some of my best buds: Shane, Neil, and Josh. A random guy, Eric Hutchinson, opened for the band we came to see, Virginia Coalition. It was amazing. That night, we got drunk and decided we were going to drive to Mexico in a car I borrowed (we drove the next day sober). We only had one CD, Eric's for the 26 hour ride. I was uncertain if everything was going to be alright.
Flash forward to returning home from Afghanistan. Fresh out of care for a brain injury, I attended an OAR concert in Utah. This random guy, Eric Hutchinson, was opening for them. He was amazing once again. My life was still uncertain though after coming home from war only months prior.
Flash forward again to tonight. I was fortunate to see Eric, in his own show, in a living room in Colorado. It was amazing as the first time I saw him before war in 2007. I feel like I've come full circle. My life is no longer uncertain and I'm happy and content. Thanks for being a part of my life Eric. .
