I wish I could tell you a story about why this happened, but that story would only be three words long.
We were imperfect.
We have been trying for so, so long. And yet we are still imperfect.
We wanted things to be better. We all want things to be better. We are far from blameless, but we did not want this.
We tried to save you. I cannot speak for all, but some of us, however few, tried to save you.
Please know that we tried.
But we were imperfect.
