Here is a lovely note from the President of Estonia to the President of Tufts University, commenting on his visit and speech to The Fletcher School. He says:

“what can compare to the chance to speak at The Fletcher School where the listeners were among the most sophisticated and knowledgeable foreign and security policy people I have ever addressed?”

Such a kind comment and epitomizes why I give thanks this year to be the Dean of The Fletcher School here at a world-class university like Tufts!
