Hi Paul,
Your news report on CNN was on our Smart Board first thing this morning. When the CNN news report finished the whole class clapped for you.
We are so happy and so proud of you!
Our class is collecting money to donate to Cancer Research.

A terrific interview. You sound great! Stay focused and your eye on the goal. Hopefully the bird is still following you. It was sent by all that care for you to keep you safe on your journey.
On the home front you missed a snowstorm that dumped 10-12 inches of snow in the area. Even NYC schools are closed.
Take care.

I lost my mother to cancer as well 7 years ago...what you are doing is nothing short of amazing.

The discipline and endurance to do something of this magnitude is inspiring, let alone why you are doing it.

I can only imagine what you must be thinking out must be profoundly agonizing, at times frustrating, and glorious all at the same time.

My husband and I are both Colgate graduates, and we have been following your adventure since Colgate promoted it in early December. We are just amazed at how close those little squares are getting to Antigua, and we can't wait to see you cross that finish line!
We are the event planners for our area, and are wondering if you will be traveling around talking about your trip? We would love to host a gathering for fellow 'Gaters to hear about your row across the Atlantic.
We are honored to donate to the cause. You sounded great on CNN - stay strong, you are almost there!

Paul: you are a crazy American bastard, you realize that. I know you can't afford to visual a hot bath right now but if you do feel ill, I'll swap places with you for a few days. I'll pay for the flights and all. You just give the word. I can row for at least 30 minutes non stop, once a day, so I'll keep you on course. Keep it up buddy!

Hi Paul,
I actually heard about this from a sister of a friend of yours from high school.

This is crazy and amazing!! Your more than half way there. I see you have sores and I'm sure at sometimes you were thinking, "why did I do this?" You did this because there is not enough people doing something. You are not only going to help people, you are contributing to SAVING THEIR LIVES!! It takes a special person to do something like this!

My grandmother has survived skin cancer twice. Not long ago she climbed onto a roof top to raise awareness for an organization. She stayed up there for a week. Its because of people like the 2 of you, that the world still has hope!

Hey i can only imagine how much closure you will get out of this!

God Bless, Rachel
