"This type of event has been missing in Staten Island since I've been living here..........all my life. At 42 years old, I still can't believe it's actually about to happen. I guess dreams do come true! You better believe that I will be there with my family, friends and my co-workers. Thanks to the Nigerian-American Community Associations and all the others involved, for their efforts ------------Janet Harris (School Teacher)
Wow! Finally! Some of us who were born in this country but always feels that deep connection to the motherland can finally celebrate with our brothers and sisters - Glory be to God almighty ____________ Mrs. Esther Williams (Bay Ridge, Brooklyn)
Every human being should support this event. As a white American, it is my believe that we are all part of a bigger family because we are all God's children and the only race that actually matters nowadays should be the human race. I will be there with my children and will enjoy ourselves. We love all our brothers and sisters regardless of cultural background or heritage. ____________Becky Schuffield (Brooklyn, NY)
