    Dear Hanna
    Congratulation for a great award that should be deservingly yours… I leave with a quote from a great persona….”After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest only for a moment, for with greatness and freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.” Nelson Mandela
