Comprobatio (com-pro-ba’-ti-o): Approving and commending a virtue, especially in the hearers.
You persisted. You wouldn’t back down. You took personal risks. You gave us all a shining example of courage, non-violence, and wisdom in action–a rare combination of virtues; a rarity that we can’t forget.
The pipeline was put on hold and we hold you responsible for enabling a judge, in good conscience, to see it our way and grant the stay.
Now, we are faced with the stay’s unravelling. Now we are faced with beginning again. I trust you will continue to display the same virtues in action so that we may influence a judge, build sympathy for our cause, and permanently block the pipeline’s construction.
