Kurt Geist had a gift. Yes, he was a talented and successful archer, but that came from sheer determination. The man gave it everything he had 100% of the time. Kurt gave us his time, individually and to the sport of archery. He didn’t give his time to get anything in return, he only inspired you to do the same and he did it to make a difference. He was never honored in what he receiveD. his honor was the reward for what he gave, his time.
They say time is the best gift you can give because you are giving them something you can never get back. Something there is never enough of. None of us know how much time we have in this world and kurt’s time ran out too soon. What is left when your time has come are your actions, the memories you left behind and how you made people feel.
