What can a pencil do for all of us? Amazing things. It can write transcendent poetry, uplifting music, or life-changing equations; it can sketch the future, give life to untold beauty, and communicate the full-force of our love and aspirations.
Within our dreams and aspirations we find our opportunities.
Sugar Ray Leonard

Jon Huntsman, Jr.
