I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all of the support that has been shown our family these past two weeks. It seems like such a short time ago, my wife and I were thrilled to be watching these kids compete in sports and grow through school activities.
With the tumultuous events that have transpired over the past few weeks, they have now been called to serve their country and protect their innocent from a great evil that exists in the world. I am sure that they are genuinely proud to do so.
The expressions of concern, comforting words and the knowledge that these young people are in so many members of our community's thoughts and prayers, has been overwhelming.
It is impossible to express the dramatic effect such acts of kindness have had on our thoughts as we go through our daily routines. This is the best place on earth. Pray for peace and thank you.
