Saints are Never Buried

Three years ago today I sat among friends in rural Missouri, cheering for Netherlands against Spain in the 2010 World Cup. I lost more than a match that night. Dozens of people died in a terrorist bombing in Kampala, Uganda. My friend Nate Henn was among those lost.

I will not address the pain and confusion of that day and the muddled weeks that followed. The wounds are fresh; the loss still present. But this song by My Epic was a source of strength for many in our community at the time.

“Saints are never buried.”

My friend Eugene posted his own words in remembrance of Nate. All pain aside, today we celebrate his memory and the time we shared.
