Hopefully you know that I am proud of you everyday but today was extra special.  Your respect for our visitor was certainly something of which to be proud but I expected that.  What made me proudest was the thoughtfulness and the appreciation for what you were part.  We are a very special group…not everyone gets to experience what you did!
