Fred and all the attendees of IETF76 Hiroshima conference,

First of all, thank you very much for this message. This is the words
of music which fills all the people who have been working for this
conference with pride, joy and peace.

A diving catch is a risk. I am requesting myself  total humility for
the further process to review this version of it.
But besides that,  I am very much proud of and appreciated all the
contributions of people and the city of Hiroshima, sponsors, e-side,
students, hotels, NOC, WIDE people, ISOC,  IAOC, and others who
actually did the work.

Finally, the real award of mine goes to you, the 76atendees, thank you
again for coming to Hiroshima!
See you all soon. Hope you have a safe trip home!

Jun Murai
