“It’s the spirit of the mountains and the spirit of the Delta. It’s the spirit of the Capitol dome. It’s the spirit of the river and the spirit of the lakes. it’s the spirit that’s in each and every home. It’s the spirit of the people and the spirit of the land, it’s the spirit of tomorrow and today.” Terry Rose and Gary Klaff
