I would just like to say thank you for everything you are doing for us. I appreciate that I can do because you are fighting for my safety. Because of you I am able to go to school and play soccer without being worried. This week has made me think about what I have. Thanks to you I am able to wake up in the morning and I am able to have a great day. I just want you to know that we are thinking about you and everyone risking their life to make Canada safe for us.
