I wondered once what it was like for Neil Armstrong to set foot on the Moon. In a somewhat negative buoyant state once I touched down on the sea floor. I don't know if it was 1/5th gravity or not, but it sure seemed like the Moon. Might as well have been.
The surface was just over two and a half football fields away, but it might as well have been 100,000 miles.
sometimes things happen that are bigger than all of us and it takes a lot of people in different times and places to do things that may not seem to affect anyone outside that isolated experience but in all reality had to happen in order to allow for other processes. Sometimes the experience you had in the middle of the night in a place that never sees sun that inmost kept you from seeing the picture of the sunrise you missed isn't for you to appreciate the sunrise but realize that you are partially responsible for the sun rising. Frame that picture and be proud of it.

Your story was riveting and sent a chill up my spine. How many years did you do this type of thing? What was the reason you took on this kind of work? I get a feeling it wasn't about money for you.
I am saddened for you for the loss of your friends and am very glad you are here to share your story. Thank you for sharing. I realize you had to relive it again in every word you shared.
You probably have a different, a deeper appreciation for the rise of every sun.
