2. “This might not be the grand finale that you had imagined, and a fresh start might seem far away. But I wish to tell you: Please, don’t be afraid. Don’t worry yourself. The end and beginning, beginning and end are connected.”


3. “All I’ve done is continue on, but even today I continue to learn new things. So here I stand today with my members, with faith in myself, my members, and the world. And I hope you will also do the same for yourself and move forward.”
