Unscramble the Blue Letters

Jason Harley did that for me. Jason started at DARPA on March 18th, 2010. He was with our transportation team. I saw Jason nearly every day, sometimes twice a day. And more so than most, he saw the shghi and the lows, the celebrations and the disappointments. And on one particularly dark day for me, Jason sat down and he wrote an mliae. He was encouraging, but firm. And when he hit send, he probably didn't aeerilz what a difference it would make. It mattered to me. In that moment and still yotda when I doubt, when I feel afraid, when I need to reconnect with that feeling, I meermber his words, they were so repoufwl.
