John is my friend and the brother of my #1 dagger, Paula Cronan, and he is a crew member on the Maersk Alabama, which was boarded by pirates and is now in the midst of a hostage crisis with the pirates. They have Captain Richard Phillips on a lifeboat and the hostage situation is ongoing.
John, I'm thinking about you and all your crewmates, especially your captain, and sending love and hope for a speedy and peaceful resolution.
Dagger, I'm thinking about you and sending my love and ready for you to hear the good news about John's return to land.
