I was an Apple Genius-in-training and working part-time on the sales floor at the local Apple store when the first iPhone went on sale six years ago today.
And boy, was it a circus.

I, too, worked at an Apple Store on launch day and I can attest to the circus environment. I worked at Apple’s flagship store in downtown Chicago and was thankfully working back of house that day, but the minute the doors opened to customers waiting in line, there was an energy like I have never felt before or since.
Thank you, Stephen! Your post brought back fond memories.
There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
