“This is where we were rooted. ... We have grown into men and women of character. ... In addition, I pray that you will cultivate our roots with gratitude. ... Extend your reach as far as you can, but remain rooted in where you have been. ... And allow your heart to always reflect gratitude toward everything that God blesses you with.” — Austin Kaufman
