The childhood box of crayons is the perfect metaphor for the
diversity that makes this country unique among nations. It is the hope and dream of many that they, too, can come, bring their own special, individual hue to enhance this colorful palette, to blend, interact, contribute in a collaborative endeavor, coexisting peacefully in this box together. This ongoing process is what Makes America Great." - Karl Tani
