17 minutes to go, almost $9,000 raised. I am a man of few words, and the correct words to express how I feel are not among them. Suffice it to say, I am overwhelmed with such a rich and deep mix of emotions right now, deeper, more wide-ranging, and more immediate than I have ever felt before. I thank you all so much from the bottom of my soul. I only hope that the work and its results are worthy of such an outpouring of kindness and generosity, and are able to spread some genuine recognition and understanding.
Separate in affect, but equal in scope--
The blind shock of tragedy,
And the brace of your support.
Take care and be safe,
