I praise the above company for what they do.

I praise the people who developed the security techniques for what they did.
I praise the people who built the computers, wrote the software, sold the
products, and enabled their use.

I praise the people who built the Internet, those who run networks everyday,
those who educate users and the public on its use, and those who made the
entire e-commerce environment possible.

I even praise the government agencies that hired the above company, the
government workers who run those agencies, the government funds that paid
for those agencies, and finally all the taxpayers who ultimately paid for
all of this.

I praise the freedom fighters who helped us keep our nations and our
freedoms up to this point. I praise the war heroes who fought previous wars
that kept us alive to fight this one. I praise the explorers who founded
these countries the colonists who first moved to each one.

In the end, everything is interconnected. Practically everything we do can
help or hinder our progress. I especially expect that people on this list
are making an impact in whatever areas they choose to assert themselves. We
can all make a difference.
