8: Bafa Bafa
9: "If I were to pick out a favorite moment, it would be when we stood in a circle as a group and shared our heritage and backgrounds in a completely harmonious and accepting environment."

18: "In order to be an effective leader, a person must be both inspired and inspiring."
20: Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
