Looking back on the years gone by, we couldn't have done it without each of you, even if we tried. Though your efforts could never be repaid, I have this one thing to say: You've made all the difference in every way and while an incredible amount of progress has been made, on this fifth anniversary, I wanted to let everybody know that my leadership is going to stand with you and fight alongside you until the the job is done.
Happy anniversary team!
