Many people have been in KSI for a while. Some have reached 7’s rank and some are Corporals in the same squad they were recruited into. One thing is certain – KSI is ever changing and evolving. Not everyone makes it through the entire trip.
This sounds kind of vague but think about it for a second. When you joined, what did your squad or divisional staff look like? Remember the members who were your best friends and go-to gamers every time you logged on? How are things now? Who’s missing and who’s still here?
Sometimes people find themselves in bad situations. Sometimes real life stuff causes them to remove themselves from the KSI family. It can be difficult pill to swallow, especially when you reminisce to all those late-night party chats and squad splits. Even the arguments or the messy moments can slowly turn into fond memories. People leave special, unique imprints – especially the ones who help you through personal difficulties.
Think about all the time you’ve spent recruiting or training a person to become an officer. Think about the times you hosted workshops or had a promotion parties for deserving members. And think about all the time you spent meeting new people from all walks of life.
Why do we continue choosing to build relationships and game with people when there is absolutely no guarantee they’ll be here tomorrow?
“Never lose hope. Stay strong. You never know what tomorrow brings.”
The best part of being in KSI is getting to experience new things every day. Creating new memories, learning new things. We owe it to our recruits to allow them to be apart of this family and have every opportunity to excel and succeed. Sometimes life will catch up to all of us and we’ll have to step away from the work we’ve put in.
One thing I can guarantee to be true in at least one person’s mind – You’re gone but not forgotten!
