Hey! I went to your competitions and that included coming off the ski jump. Sorry that you forgot. I was amazed at your courage, commitment, and pasion for freestyle skiing. Just like you have now for your work.

Wow, Susan... Congratulations! You did a passionate, super job! And I love how you wrote about preparing for it, and I love the ski jump girl. That is a beautiful sychrony! To remember yourself and then to think about the children you are speaking with and for.
The Italians say, "In boc' al lupo!" Which means, "Jump in the wolf's mouth!" Which is kind of the same idea.
