I would like to thank you for reminding me of the wisdom of being respectful to others at all times.
Since your arrival to our country, you have become, truly indeed, a great American.
You are a true icon of human civility, personified by the highest and most exemplary levels of respect you have always shown to all members of our checker fraternity.
You have become the ambassador our richly beloved game needs, not only in America, but worldwide.
The positive relationships you have forged with all of our fellow checker players have surely set the "gold standard" for the art of tact and diplomacy.
For all of the reasons stated above, your words of truth have resonated most deeply in my heart and soul.
Therefore, I have resolved, from this moment henceforth, to follow your example.
Accordingly, I must now humbly apologize for any and all words of disrespect I may have inflicted upon you in the past.
You can now rest assured that I now regard you as my personal role model and number one hero.
I shall conduct myself accordingly.
Thanks again for opening my eyes.
With My Ultimate Respect,
