It was such a pleasure to visit with you during my visit this past
October. I appreciated hearing your honesty and thoughtfulness
surrounding the complex issue of the Internet. I am never surprised to
learn how intelligent you are.
I can't emphasize to you enough that ultimately, you will be the one to
decide whether or not you are safe on the Internet. You have the power
to decide whether or not you will enter chat rooms, continue to talk to
unknown people and, further, if you decide to meet someone over the
Internet. Remember, there is no way to ever really know who you are
talking to. It's quite easy to believe that you are actually talking to
an attractive teenager; it's harder to believe the reality that the
person could be much older and far from picture perfect.
I wish you all the best and it's my hope that you continue to stay safe
over the Internet.
