  1. …Pro Tip: don’t tour active volcanic caldera.

    …God bless their family on their hour of need. They’ve probably seen this coming, but it doesn’t make it easier, and when someone you love dies of doing sonething stupid, that just makes it harder still.

    Pray for that family. They are every bit as precious to God as Kobe Bryant’s…
