Zoraida Sambolin: 'Many thanks' for your support

I am humbled and empowered by your many emails, tweets, phone calls and postings of support.

My goal was just to let you know I would be gone and why, yet we have started a powerful dialogue that is providing me with so much courage and joy.

My commitment to you is to keep you informed of everything I learn and to continue the dialogue here.

I will be telling more stories and whenever possible posting a little extra something here.  Again, many thanks.
