"I just read this while I was working on collecting stories about our project for a research paper for someone else. Very cool. Thanks for the compliments. By the way, the project is over. Gil is back on American soil, and we collected upwards of 7,000 pairs of shoes from 25 states in a matter of months. :) It went well. Thanks for the support."So congratulations to Ms. Vader and Sgt Gilbert for a job well done, and many thanks for proving that, as always, America is the greatest and the best nation on Earth!
