Just as i begin this vivid conversation, let me first and foremostt address the most affected but highly neglected group. The 307 kids out their in the cold of despair. To whom its like the world just collapsed before them. Young industrious brothers take heart for all is not lost. This is just but a challenge that am sure we will win. I feel sorry for the fact that you have toiled for four good years only to hit despair subsitituted for your otherwise sweet success. Boys most of you am sure you are 18, 17, or perhaps 16. Young and energeticwith great futures ahead . What happened had to happen but it holds no hostage to our bright futures ahead. So dont loose hope. Enough to the crying,wipe the tears, pick the pieces and lets get running all over again.
