My final words are those of Fred Rogers, “If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet. How important you can be to the people you may never even dream to meet. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.” For me, each mission I leave something of myself behind, a bit of knowledge and some healing for someone that matters.
