I've kept quiet for 23 pages, but I simply can't any longer.
This has been a very challenging week. At the beginning of the week it felt a lot like David vs Goliath... but then something happened that changed everything. Something that was very moving and pushed us forward despite the odds -- our customers and supporters began to reach out and let us know they are with us in this fight. We started getting messages from all around the world encouraging us to stand tall and not give in.
We thought long and hard about the fight ahead as we sat in the Connection 3 conference room just outside the final inspection area of the Fremont Factory at 11:01pm on Wednesday night. Should we hit the button and release the blog, or should we just stay silent and hope this passes as quickly as possible. The answer became clear, we simply could not stand by and let our customers and supporters down. You expect us to do what we think is best. You expect us to do things others would never do. And you expect us to do it despite the odds, so we did. We hit the button and published the blog.
Since the moment we hit the button, the response from the Tesla Community has been incredible!!! Words cannot describe how thankful we are to have your support as we continue our mission to simply have the truth be told.
What you are doing for us this weekend is AWESOME! We go to work every day committed to doing something that we believe will make a difference in the future. All of you should know that what you are doing for us this weekend inspires us and reminds us that there are people out there who believe in what we are doing and who are willing to stand behind us when the going gets tough. Priceless...
Thank you so much for what you are doing this weekend! It means more than you will ever know. I'll be cheering you on every step of the way
