You did it. We won. We could not have done it without each and every one of us there. I am honored to have stood by your side, last night and all these years, to have fallen by your side, died by your side, and have been picked up by you. Everything that we went through and overcame will be with me for the rest of my life.
I hope to see you all again, successful, happy, safe, or standing with me on the next Expedition to the Three Sisters. Tonight I pour one out for Araris and Ryel, the heroes who stood with us until their final deaths, who always stood in the face of horror with stoic bravery, and who I turned to to see standing and know we had hope.
I am sorry I was in no condition to say this to you last night, but I'm probably not alone in having been too wiped to function properly. I am glad that you all had the foresight to celebrate in advance, and only regret that I did not take a moment to enjoy it with you then. Thank you for being the heroes Ora did not know it had. Thank you for your service. Thank you for everything you have done for me, for us.
And on a final note, I'd like to remind you, that none of us are getting paid.
