This isn't about what these mean to just me... but also those are me. My neighbor and friend gifted me my very first ZOX strap months ago. Since then, I cannot count how many I have bought for myself but, more importantly, to gift to others; my kids, my husband, friends, and Airmen I work for and with. Yes I am in the Air Force. I heard a Chief once say that in the military we have two families; the name tape on our right (our last name) and the name tape on the left side (the Air Force). I find this to be true. We sometimes spend more time with our Airmen than we do with our own families. In doing so, we learn so much about one another; strengths, vulnerabilities, dreams, etc. These ZOX help tap into each person I come across and remind them that although we are all one... we are all individuals. With one ZOX I am able to let them know that I'm there for them, I care, I can listen, and remind them that what's inside of them matters tremendously. In a world where there's so much chaos and hate, I want to be that spark that ignites these words of affirmation among one another. I want to be on the side of faith and love. If I could buy thousand of these to gift... I would. Right now, my favorite one is No Regrets. I have given over 20 years of my life to this country and now I will be retiring within the year. This ZOX reminds me that there are no regrets - only learning opportunities, and with 20 years of traveling across the globe... I learned a lot. I really hope that if anyone gets a chance to read this, that these ZOX have and the story of these brothers pull on your heart strings, I hope that you share these ZOX and these words with others. Lastly, I hope you all enjoy life, show compassion to one another.
