Wow, thank you Father, thank you Jesus. This is a great night for me. Wow. I guess this — let me just be brief about this. I done thanked everybody that I could possibly think of but let me just say this: It's in the valley — and I don't think you can have a peak if you don't ever have a valley — it's in the valley when we learn who we really are. And it's in the peaks when we learn who we really are because success exposes who you really are. And I want to use this success to build bridges not to burn them. Thank you, everybody, very much.
