Hello Everyone,

I wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude for all of the votes I received and the subsequent induction into the Hall of Fame. To be perfectly honest, when Mikal texted me the other day and told me I was nominated I really didn't know what to expect. However, over the next few days I found myself on a roller coaster of emotions (I can't even imagine what D.K and Wylted were feeling!!), and it was one of the most trying times I've ever experienced here on DDO. I was forced to reflect on many of the events that have taken place during my time here, and one thing stood out above all else - the constant support and friendships that I've found here.

When I first joined, I had no idea what to expect. I stumbled across the weekly stupid on youtube and decided that I just *had* to join this community. Upon doing so, I re-awakened my lost passion for debate, and was instantly hooked by the highly intelligent members here who I immediately realized had alot to teach me. From RoyL., to Bluesteel, to Bladerunner, and so many more - I finally found people that I could actually look up to, people that I could actually respect and learn from.

But more important than the intellectual stimulation was the friendships, and no matter what - whenever I've been down, you all have been here for me. When my childhood dog passed away, when I quit my job, when I had my heart broken, and even through all the beefs I had with various members - which always culminated in me learning something new about myself. Through all of it, I've always had a shoulder to lean on here, and I hope you guys realize that at those rough times those words of kindness made all the difference between giving up on everything and keeping on.

You have all made such an impact on my life, and I can't put into words just how much it means to me. At this point, I know without a doubt that joining this community was the right choice in my life. I will never forget this moment, nor will I ever forget those of you who helped me get to where I am now. I will always be here for you, just as you have been here for me, and nothing makes me happier than to be able to say that.

Thank you again, everyone. I promise to only further my efforts here, and to continue my efforts in making this site a better place for all of us.

Remember, if you ever have a debate that is unvoted or stuck in a tie, send it my way and I'll do my best to vote on it. My inbox is always open :)

Truly & Sincerely,

Addison/Blade of Truth
