Dear Michelle,

Even though this comes a couple days late, I just wanted to say that I'm sorry to hear of your injury and subsequent withdrawal from the Olympics this year. I was really rooting for you and hoped that you would go in there and show 'em all how it's done. Over the past ten years you've been a great athlete and beautiful artist on the ice, and I appreciate the grace with which you've represented your sport and the graciousness with which you left your Olympic stage.

All the best,

PS: I'll always remember how you sat forward at freshman orientation and said to those of us sitting around you "Hi, I'm Michelle."
