Your Holiness,

I want you to know how grateful I am for you and the difference you have made in my life. Buddhism is fairly new to me so I am continually learning more about it and realizing that it's core principles are things that I've strives for my whole life. I've recently seen video clips of you and every time I watch you speak, I feel hopeful for humanity. Your presence has a "glow" to it that makes me feel love for humanity and I feel it when you speak and look at the person you are speaking with. I appreciate seeing that and I hope to emulate that in my interactions with other people. You give me hope for more acceptance and kindness in my fellow human beings and for this I am eternally grateful.

Your faithful and humble follower,

Rachel Hartman
