    This was a most excellent conference. The information shared, the plight, the triumphs and the resiliency, all stories of great resolve and courage. Thank you for the opportunity to attend such an illuminating event. I look forward to more. Certainly the Humanities will continue to bridge gaps and facilitate healing.
