After what we’ve been through it would be very easy to give up, to lose hope. But not here, not today. This is more than a ship, Chief, this is an act of faith. It is proof that despite all we’ve lost we keep trying and we will get through this, all of us, together. I promise.

As humans, we waste the shit out of our words. It’s sad. We use words like “awesome” and “wonderful” like they’re candy. It was awesome? Really? It inspired awe? It was wonderful? Are you serious?
