    Karen, yes, all kidding aside, that extremely well said, concise, to
    the point and most important, it's true. It's good that there is a
    person around that will try to make an serious impact on the
    mentality of people and also try to promote a side of things that many
    don't bother to think about. My hat goes off to you. Good work. I've
    sent you an application to join the team.
