"Justice begins with each of us. When we seek justice, we must first examine our minds and our hearts. Justice involves lifting up our shared history, hopes and visions for our future, respecting one another amidst our great diversity--and tolerance rooted in love. The result always will be greater than the sum of its parts. One of the greatest joys of public service is when this magic happens."
- Judge Jennifer Brunner
