“A new day has begun as the sun opens its eyes to the world a vision of hope, a pipeline of dreams to be one with yourself to believe. As a tear drop slides from the cheek of a face, a newborn child for the human race, in a battle against time, in which we can not win, at our moment of death, forgive those who sin. As the sun slides back across the land, we make our final stand.” ~ Michael J. Hamby, Sr.
