A Candle for a Friend

While going to the US for FTF, my friend Andreas decided that he does not want to continue his life anymore. And committed suicide. In cases like this, it is hard to find words. All my thoughts and prayers are with his family. There is not much I can do over here, but I can light up a candle in the city of Austin:

What I did not disclose in this blog until now: I’m a secret agent for the RESISTANCE.

💡 You might read all about this ‘agent thing’ at Ingress.

My friend Andreas (agent name ‘BigBigJerk’ or short ‘BBJ’) was one of my mentors, and we were helping out each other.

Ingress is not a normal game: it brings people together all across the world. It is a sport with two factions, and the Ingress community and agents are helping out each other (at least most of them). I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the Austin ENLIGHTENED agents who paused for a while their activities to make the candle possible:

Together with Austin Enlightment Agents

May you Rest In Peace, agent BBJ.
