"What happens to a dream deferred?" asked, poet, Langston Hughes, "does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?" We at the BRONZeTONE Center value the dreams buried deep within most of us. We realize, too, that "dreams are the stuff that life is made of." For this reason, each year we identify and support ordinary folk with extraordinary visions for their lives. On July 22, Mr. Hamlin succumbed to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and related complications. He was a bka (below the knee amputation) survivor, yet he continued to have a passion for life. So we continue to stand in, with, and for the legacy of Lewis Decellous Hamlin.
