Thank you

I appreciate you, your family, Leah, Mark, Clare and others. I have listened to the show and Podcast for years and I gain great comfort from it. It is a pleasure to witness people fighting for what’s right.

I have been upset lately that it seems a group that has also left Scientology has turned on you and literally encouraged others to stand against you. I don’t understand and I am sorry this is happening.

Good health to you and your family.
