The last couple of weeks have been difficult, not just for me, but for everyone. We all stepped on to a roller coaster that had us feel as if we were spinning out of control. We screamed, we cried, we laughed. But our fate was decided in the trust we put into the ride. It took the first plunge for me to cry out for that trust, it had always been there - yet I was afraid of it. Now the ride is over. Pulling into the gate, I feel the soft breeze tickle my face as I step of the ride. I still feel the terror, but in the end I knew I had to ride it out. Empowered by the strength of fear, I fell calm, collected and content. I am ready. We are ready.
