We want to thank you for inviting us and giving us the opportunity to speak.

We solemnly and sincerely declare and affirm that the statements we have prepared correspond to the current and difficult realities that we have encountered.

The situation we are talking about today aren’t just problematics we and our community are facing, they are challenges for all of us.

We are pleased that the committee is holding this hearing to bring greater focus to the important events that have been related to our recent activities.

Our experience has given opportunities to access added value to everyone and everything. Founded upon basic principles that promote social, moral, and educational development, the experience provides opportunities for individual, organizational, environmental, institutional growth and success.

We will continue to cooperate with all relevant authorities interested in following up on the resolution of the issue.

Some things just happen: we always want to find someone to blame for. But sometimes there is no one to blame.

We are all very sorry. You say you are sorrier than we are, but we are sorry as well. We are as sorry as you are.
