My Dearest East,
I love that you are all discussing the various ways that We can gather together and celebrate one another. At this time, many of these options are under discussion, and many groups within the kingdom have found ways to gather virtually over the past few weeks.
With respect to recognition, I personally would like to hold off on virtual courts because I want to celebrate the great achievements of Our populace with people as they are surrounded by their friends and family. I feel that the hard work that our community has given and continues to give deserves this respect.
I know that other Kingdoms have adopted different policies and work-around for their own people, and I celebrate those choices.
The East will celebrate together when We are next able to. We are fierce and loyal Tygers! We will hold each other up and celebrate. We will hold everyone light and having their achievements shouted for all to hear. We know that we are many stripes of One Tyger.
Please continue to be patient and kind with each other. Things seem to change all at once and We continue to monitor things closely.
Please continue to share thoughts and ideas. Together is how we not only make it through this, but how the Eastern Tyger comes out stronger.
I hold so much love and pride for all of you! In service to The Dream and The East,
Queen of the East
