Hearing this piano ring through the fields and trees of Piedmont Park was an inspiring moment.  This is a place that every Atlantan walks through at one time or another, and what better way to symbolize that connection than with music.

We all experience different triumphs and heartbreaks, yet we have all experienced the glory of accomplishment and the tragedy of loss.  We all have different talents and interests, yet we are all searching for the journeys that give our life meaning.  We all have different things that light up our eyes, but we all have a light to share.
