This is the Day of Seth’s Birth

14 Jul

Ray: Today is Seth’s Birthday. He’s one year older. One year further from birth and yet, one year closer to death. Haha. I wasn’t there for his birth and I haven’t known him all of my life. In fact, he’s only been relevant to me for about 5 years.

I met Seth the same night that I met Jonathan Kozol. We were both a part of Temple’s Main Campus Program Board’s Lectures Series. We went to a dinner together to meet up with Mr. Kozol before he was schedule to speak. I didn’t care about Seth at all during that time, but he spoke proper English and I respected him for that.

At some point, we bacame co-chairs for the Lectures series. That wasn’t enough so I became President of MCPB and he became adviser #1 while serving as co-chair of the Lectures series. That wasn’t enough so I became the Student Body President and Seth became President of Main Campus Program Board. Through the course of those 3 years, we accomplished a great deal on campus. Most importantly, we progressed as men and as leaders.

Today, Seth is just as much of a major influence in my life as ever. Although he hasn’t grown in height, I’ve seen him grow closer to God, country, family, and friends. I have nothing but respect for this guy and I know that the world is a better place because of him. Well, maybe not. But we love him anyways.

Happy Birthday Boyyyyyyyyyyy.
