Well, thank you, Ambassador. I want to thank Ambassador Sasae for welcoming us here, and we just had a ceremony which was a wonderful introduction to the Japanese culture. And my husband and I and our children are so excited to be going to Japan on Thursday, and look forward to meeting as many people as we can, to making new friends, visiting and studying the history and culture of this beautiful country that is such a strong partner to the United States in so many important efforts. 

So thank you all for coming today, and I look forward to seeing you in Japan.
