Dear Edward, I struggle to find the words to express the depth of gratitude I feel towards you. You have sacrificially taken on “the world” to be the voice of us all – humanity in all its forms- humanity with its common desire for decency, dignity, and individual freedom! Your courage to choose moral conscience over “authority” is a lesson to be taught in schools, businesses, and churches. May the Source of us all give you comfort and peace all the days of your life. And know that no matter what happens, your bravery will not have been in vain. You have already changed the world.
