    It was standing room only, with talented keyboard musician Cleland Boney creating a new community gospel choir with joyful
    energy celebrating 50 years of progress for integration, still a work in progress.

    Thank you for your comment Patricia. This celebration was extraordinary; the music was moving, and each speech was riveting. "This is who we are."

    I AM SO GLAD I WAS THERE! An inspiring afternoon. A witness to how far we've come and a challenge for the miles we have yet to travel.

    It was not only inspiring, it was rejuvenating and powerful. There are at least another 4000 people that feel and think the same way but were unable to attend for other involvements. If you think about it, only about 10% of social situations, presentations and gatherings are recorded. I think of how much connectedness there really exists in the human spirit in Shasta County alone.

    And a shout out to Greg Cheadle for his powerful delivery of the "Dream" speech. Dramatically done without losing respect or dignity. And yes, the music was outstanding . . . as are all projects in which Mr. Bonny is involved.
