"Dear Jackson I’m so sorry to hear that you lost your book. I know everything is hard and scary right now, but you’re a brave young man and you’ll do great things! Abraham Lincoln also has it tough in the beginning, but he went on to save America! Lincoln once said “when you reach the end of your rope tie a knot and hold on. Hold on Jackson, the best it’s yet to come! Happy holidays my dear. "
