    Excellent. Pity the author didn't pay more attention to his/her writing though.

    "I was just there".
    How many have the mantle of Hero, who happened to "Just be there".
    You go where they send you, you do what you have to do.

    But, I speak and read English in part, because he was "Just there".

    For that, we owe him our thanks.
