Wonderfully interesting

I would like to commend everyone on their work with this. Since day 1 I have always been interested in the Ebola virus. Although it is a terrible and threatening disease, it is also remarkably interesting. I feel deeply for those effected and plan to dedicate my life to furthered research of this disease. To all of those currently doing so, keep up the good work, we're all rooting for you.
