As one who has visited your beautiful country, and was personally hosted by your then President Zatlers, as a speaker for your countries' future young leadership, I was extremely saddened to learn of the recent tragedy in Latvia this week. This human tragedy has in some way impacted the whole of the soul of the country, and her people, if not specific families and their lives.
Please know that as one who has visited and experienced the rich history and culture of your country, and the beauty of her people, that my heart is with you during this time. We are all global citizens, and we are all inter-connected.
The entire Operation HOPE family joins me in extending our warmth and best wishes to all who call Latvia home during this painful time.
