Nov. 27 – Goodbye for now

As my taxi pulled up to the Athens airport this morning, a storm raged out the window and a single tear fell down my cheek. I paused for a moment, breathing in the humid air, a bit of Greece and all that 2016 has brought. I will be back, but in the meantime I want to give a sincere thank you to my on-the-ground team – Laura Flandrick, Rita Continakis and Christa Hobart. Thank you for being not just teammates but therapists, comedians, personal chefs, first aid response team, drivers, navigators, negotiators, and so much more. But most of all, friends. I am proud of this team and what we accomplished in one short week and you should be proud too. This work is not for the faint of heart and you all face it head on with passion, humility and determination. The world needs more beautiful, loving souls like yourselves and I am so grateful to have shared this journey with you.
