A speech for 'hope'

January 26, 2013 - John D'Agostino
Nate Shinagawa made a special return to Dunkirk last week.

The former candidate for Congress from Tompkins County was the keynote speaker of the Dunkirk-Fredonia National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Dr. Martin Luther King luncheon that was attended by about 150 people at the Dunkirk Moose.

I loved his story of the Sequoia trees in Ca. How tall and thick they are..some so huge you can even drive your car through their trunks.

Yet their roots are very shallow, supporting these huge trees. They get their support because their roots reach out and intermingled with other sequoia tree roots, each helping the other.

Just like we are meant to do as humans living on earth. We can reach out and support each other, help each other, and together we all will be strong.

Nate is on his way up. Keep your eyes on him, he is one rising star.
