"How did I come to be? What shall I make of life around me? What to celebrate, whom to emulate? What to accept or reject? How does American society look - when regarded through other people's eyes, when informed by their own sense of past, present, future, and viewed through their own complex prism of who they are? Reflection on ourselves can be the catalyst for dreams, and even the intangible dreams of having a tangible effect on the world."—Brett Cook-Dizney
