To our new Mainers, hold fast to this: We are blessed, every day, that we have you in our lives.

We admire you. Actually, we are in awe of you. How is it that we are so fortunate that you could have gone anywhere in the world and we are the ones who get to know you and love you!

Thank you for sharing your lives with us. And we trust that you know that what you hear out of the mouth of our president is more foreign to most of us than any of you could ever be.
