“60 Million beautiful souls…
Normally we do a live, whenever we hit a milestone. However, this milestone came a lot sooner than expected.
Last New Year, I went with just my family on a very important road trip, partially inspired by my brother Pablo, who was guiding me up the California Coast. This year, despite the offers to travel, I did the same thing. Soul searching, finding the way forward.
The time when Paul and I closed down a press junket in LA… I believe it was the only time in history, that a junket was ever shut down due to driving. Haha, it was the last time the studio ever had cars at a junket that Paul and I were at.
Back in 2010, when the earthquake hit Haiti, I had asked everyone I knew to come to the island of Hispaniola, even friends that were born there, and the only person who came through was my brother Paul. It was the first trip his foundation made, in fact, I remember him asking me which name I preferred, REACT or ROWW (Reach out world wide).
For the road trip I accidentally brought the wrong computer, an older one, with older images… and I got lost in the memories.
P.s. Our 60M Milestone…
You have always been so supportive, especially in these past two months… So, I wanted to share something personal that I worked on through the New Year, in honor of my brother Pablo… Paul.”
Nice words Vin.
Rest in Peace Paul.
