I just received this e-mail this morning....
Thank you for making the investment to come for the two-day Polyface intern checkout. It was
an extremely strong group and we are blessed to know so many passionate and goal-oriented
young people are out there.
As you know, we can't take everyone. The fact that you did not make the final cut certainly does
not reflect negatively; the field was very strong. We appreciate your commitment to clean farming
and healing the land and trust that whatever your next step is, you will pursue this vision with
enthusiasm and integrity.
As you pursue your farming endeavors, be sure to check the Polyface Opportunities page for other intern or job opportunities. http://www.polyfacefarms.com/opportunities/
We wish only God's richest blessings on you and trust you will find the best fit for your talents.

I've been crying ever since I first read this. I'm not going to Polyface, after all. My hopes and dreams have come crumbling down around me, in a dusty heap. I'll put on a straight face eventually, and continue on with life. But not today. Today is a day of mourning.
