  1. Dear William,
    I have been profoundly influenced by your work and have given and recommended your books to friends across the sociology-economic gamut. I grew up in Chicago, lived and breathed the streets, the politics, the Cubs (somehow I take you for a Sox fan….). I have seen friends and students I have mentored become victims of the injustice system as non-violent offenders. I’m sure you hear this all the time….but the reason I am writing you today is because I created a project indirectly influenced by your idea that philanthropy is the art form of the 21st century….and would be honored if you would take a look at it. Feel free to contact me at any time, and if I don’t hear from you, I thank you for creating relevant, accessible literature. You remind me of a fellow Chicagoan, Kevin Coval. Thank you again.
    One love One aim One destiny
