A True American Hero: Nicholas Cain Kirven

I just wanted to take the time to acknowledge the amazing life of the brother of our friend Pride. United States Marine Nicholas Cain Kirven was killed on Sunday, May 8 in the mountains of Afghanistan fighting for what he truly believed in, the freedom of our great nation. His selfless devotion to his country is one that is undoubtedly the most honorable and heroic quality that anybody could ever have. I was fortunate enough to meet him last semester as he came to visit Pride. While our encounter was brief, it was obvious that he was an amazing person who had nothing but love for his sister and everyone around him. Below is a photograph that captures his courageous commitment to serving his country.
