“They need help, we must help.” #forGarethSwan


January 14, 2021 by Kenneth Fisher

We just finished a memorial for Gareth Swanepoel. He was an amazing person and someone I wish I’d gotten to known better. Several times during the memorial hearing about him made me realize I want to be a better person. Now, I’m not saying I’m a bad person, just that I want to be better. Something Gareth was quoted as saying came up a few times. “They need help, we must help.” This struck me deeply. To a large degree this is something I see from the SQL community all the time. It’s something I personally try to live by and something I’m going to make a point of emphasizing even more from this point on. It’s been a tough year and I don’t seeing it getting a lot easier any time soon.

We all need help right now. We must help.

So please, if I can help, reach out. If not, well, moral support is literally the least I can do.

    There are many, many such persons who do not wave their own flag for attention nor seek reward. And each of them make this planet incrementally better, often in unseen ways.. So many excellent souls have been lost. RIP.
