First off, I would like to personally thank Kelley, Nathan, Savannah, Larry, Janice and the entire Brown family for having the courage and faith to tell the story of their loss loved one. It cannot be easy. Thank you Eric Blehm for writing this book so brilliantly to bring Adam's story to the world. Finally, thank you Adam Brown for being the person he was and his sacrifice to our great country. I want you all to know, it was not in vain.
Secondly, I've read MANY books about MANY great people who inspired me, but none of which matched the inspiration of Adam Brown. Ever since I read Fearless, I've been looking for more ways to live my life according to God's will and not my own. It has inspired me to be a better husband, father, son, person, and warrior. For some reason I cannot explain I feel this deep connection to Adam Brown. I just think that is the type of person he must've been, and I hope to meet him in heaven one day.
Like a lot of people I have gone through many of the same struggles as Adam, including addiction. I wrestle every day with my demons and know now that I can do anything through Christ who gives me strength. I have always believed that, but Adam's story has given me a strong desire to live my life for a greater purpose. I know that whatever happens nobody can take my spirit from me. It is God's and God's alone.
As I sit here writing this, words cannot express the gratitude I feel in my heart. It is like I have a renewed faith in Jesus Christ that I know never left me, but ignored for so long. I am going to pass this book onto a friend who I believe it can help, and I hope he does the same, again and again. So I really just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and please pass along my condolences and gratitude to Kelley and the rest of the Brown family. Take care and God bless.
