Yesterday I cried, apologized and cried again. However, I realize that the emotions that Mina has built up about me over time cannot be easily resolved, so I am very sorry. When I was younger I believed that our team should only show our good sides to our staff and the world. I thought so in my twenties, but now I realize that I lacked the human side as a leader to lead a team in that way. I am sorry for causing controversy and writing such a disorganized statement.
