It’s a beautiful occasion to come here today to see the unveiling. We’ve come a long way and we’ve got a long way to go. It’s wonderful to see all the supporters here. We are concerned about the future. What’s going to happen to our children and grandchildren?” said Anderson, who came from New York City. “We’re most concerned about the economy.
