Look at it this way:

I'm sure you must know how lonely it can be at the top. But I am confident that YOU can handle it, Brendon. And besides, someone has to lead the way between here and doomsday, December 21, 2012.

Relish the magnificent scenery ahead and the clean, fresh air as you lead the way into the future.
