  • “Thank you for the support that you have given me”

  • “Thank you so much for helping us. We couldn’t have done it without you all! We wouldn’t be where we are today without people like you by our side. We can’t thank you enough for being there in our time of need. You have no idea how much your help means to us. For all the things you do, both big and small, want to thank you once again”.

  • “To you all. Thank you guys for all the help you’ve given me.”

It’s also a time to recognise the racial injustices on which the US was founded, and which persist around the world today. For these reasons I’m feeling grateful to you all for letting me become a part of the TREC family while I was living here, and most of all, for the meaningful and essential work you do every day.”
