Although I consider myself a very private person, I feel the need to go public with a positive message and to work diligently with others to lend a voice for the advancement of racial and religious harmony in our country. I have learned that by sitting on the sidelines is not a way to advance this cause. We as a society can and must live together in peace as one people, one people who by the grace of God, can overcome these obstacles that stand in our way. This must be done for those living today, and for the ones we love, for tomorrow. My name is Jeff Hanlon.
