A week ago, I received a beautifully hand written letter from a 19 year old girl of Eichstatt, Germany. Her name is Julia Pichler and she is a very smart young lady; who is currently in college near her home in Bavaria. I have to compliment her exquisite way of writing a letter. It's very rare that we use the typical way of communicating but the fact that she took the time to write me and Daniel a ten page letter makes me appreciate it so much more.
She included in her letter a poem she wrote in an English class in her first term at uni. She thoughtfully shared it with Daniel to help him gain some strength from it and has allowed me to share it with the world in hopes of giving others strength and hope. Thank you Julia Pichler, you are indeed one of a kind. We hope to one day get to meet you.
