“A million thank yous for all your help in providing such a memorable program to the students of Newbury College here in Boston, particularly on the day after the Boston Marathon bombings.  Your remarks were so hopeful and inspirational and you are so humble.  I hope my daughter in particular remembers your grace, your confidence and your resilience.  Personally, it was one my most favorite Newbury moments of all time.”
