Too many to thank
I know that if I begin thanking all those that have made this event possible the list will be very, very long.
Suffice to say that there are many people on both sides of the Atlantic who have worked long and hard to
make this event happen. I know that this work has been difficult and complicated, but all that have devoted
their time have shared the same goal, and that is to make a difference in this world. We as a team must
allow ourselves to feel good about what we have accomplished but also never forget that there is so much
more to do. To all my African brothers and sisters I say let us all continue the struggle to create a more just
world for all.
