  1. Congratulations, Israel. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to see receive your award. Not that you are the sort of fellow who does what you do looking for accolades, but that’s sorta the point of this award (which is what makes it special) — peers thanking peers for their hard work. Thank you…for all your hard work.

  2. What Lynne said. Congratulations Israel.

  3. Congratulations Israel and Street Roots.

  4. Well deserved Israel. Nice work my friend.
