Thanksgiving Thoughts

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to take some time to reflect on our time together this year so far and express my gratitude and thankfulness to each and everyone of you. 

I don't think it's a secret that this year has been different. We changed a lot of things around. Our format of weekly chapters changed, the times and locations changed, our structure of committees changed and so much more. However, I wanted to make it clear that I am so thankful for all of you being patient with the new ways of AGX. It might have taken awhile to get used to the new year in AGX, but I am so grateful that we stuck it out together. 

I have talked about this with some brothers already, but this weekend had a certain feeling to it...some may call it a SPARK. it was made up of pure excitement, genuine brotherhood and positive energy. Initiation was so amazing and I wanted to thank each and every one of you that were in attendance. If you ever talked to me about what it is like being in my position, I might have said, "Crazy. Hard. Awesome. Hard. Tiring. Humbling. Hard." You might also know that I get way too super excited over the smallest things in Chapter that go well. You all have me grinning when I see Business Peoples blow up with family pictures or when I hear that brothers in our chapter are getting more involved. Heck I couldn't shut up the other day because we had a couple of brothers make their own events on APOonline, but this feeling on Saturday allowed me to take a step back and see how far we have come. 

Whether it was the goofy pictures brothers were taking together with the big letters, the family breakfasts that occurred before, or Ladder 11 after, Initiation was ~fantastic~. I have never been so proud of a group of people and the strides we have took to make not only AGX better but everyone around us better. Our brotherhood we often talk about has recently become visible touching many brother's lives. I am so grateful to have you all in our chapter, so thank you.

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, It has been incredible getting to know all of you better this semester and I am so thankful that I did. It isn't everyday that I write a sappy email to the entirety of chapter, but it is because of you all that I do it.

Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and spending time with those that you love. With that said, for those going back home, I wish you safe travels. Be present with your friends and/or family. Reflect on those things that you are thankful for and have a great break. Get away from school, from stresses (and yes even from APO a little). You all deserve it. 

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for making our chapter better, but more importantly for being a part of my life. 

Oh, also @TaylorSwift I am thankful for your existence. 

In Brotherhood,

Nate Borries
