Thank you for teaching me by learning who I am.
Thank you for telling me to talk instead of telling me to listen.
Thank you for putting life and context into our lessons and for showing me that they are never separate.
Thank you for showing me that it's possible to become someone that doesn't compromise on what's most important.
Thank you for giving sympathy to problems that I tucked away because I assumed they were universal and thus not worth mentioning.
Thank you for repeatedly reminding me how much I have to be proud of.
Thanks admiral. I'll miss ya.
