I’m not really sure if I can really express what today meant to me. It was amazing having you and Nicole there this morning. Looking into the student’s eyes, I know your words changed their lives. Elyssa’s story is a powerful one, and having you there to answer questions and shed light on the subject was something I will never forget. I appreciate your strength and courage; I know it’s not easy for you to be there. I have loved teaching the program, it has been therapeutic for me in a way and I always feel Elyssa’s warmth in the room. Thank you for coming back for the afternoon session. Today is a day I’ll never forget.
