Dear Friends,

You know how much my heart aches for what happened to you. The decision to let you go is beyond our captain’s control. The captain, no matter how much he tries to put up a brave front, is still human. He, just like you and me, is vulnerable these past few days.

There are things that are beyond our control and it’s painful to let precious people go. Do we get trapped in this self-pity or do we start to walk out with dignity? The future may be bleak for now, but trust me, anyone who has faith in God and himself has a promise of a brighter future.

Cheer up! Vaya con Dios!
