  • To everyone with eyes to see and ears to hear the extraordinary musician Troy Andrews.

  • To all the citizens of this world, with the hope that we slow down and recognize the inspriation all around us.
    The 5 O'Clock Band
  • For everyone-may you be inspired to seek truth and find courage, and like Thurgood Marshall, prove to the world that justice is what love looks like in public.
