I am very proud of the decisions we have made. I hope that they can be respected, because I, and our Board of Trustees, are absolutely clear that the words of the Promise, and our commitment to one Promise for All, have not changed. To me, this is what being "true to myself" is all about: standing up for what we believe in even when it might seem hard.
