Fue una de esas presentaciones que quedan en la memoria, en los sentimientos, acaso por el ambiente, probablemente por su significado, quizá por la gente con la que uno coincide, tal vez por eso y más.

We’re in a world of hurt and it’s a critical juncture to try to do everything we can to turn that around.”
