“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” ~ Aristotle ~
The Covid-era reminds us the future remains wildly unpredictable. Moving through the development of Joshua Tree Voice to the unforeseeable future, I’d like to express my love and appreciation to the shining lights along the way: Raymond & Mary Rodriguez, Kathi Rodriguez, The Rodriguez Family, The Duran Family, The Delgado Family, Brian & Jan Harnik, Jane Tyler, The Kelly Family, JR Thomas, Alban Wolff IV, Kevin & Julie Riley, Dr. George Altuzarra, George Velarde, Paul Schwartz, Bobby “Jones” Karuzas, Mark Elliot, Scott Avra, Michael Shepherd, Paul Magana, Susie Harvey, Victor Tocco, Rodrigo Torres, Arturo Gonzalez, Monica Vasquez, Pam Shidler, Rafael Hernandez and “The Hawk.” Raymond Rodriguez, Jr.
There was a time I thought all was lost. I had no hope or faith in myself and believed I had failed my purpose. I was wrong. To those who believed in me until I could believe in myself, the steadfast cheerleaders and sounding boards, fellow underdogs, and the ones that stuck around even after things got ugly, I owe you everything: Aunt Colleen, Kandie & Darren Worden, Tracy Dietlin, Phil Lacombe, Debi Kassul, Liza Kane, Jasmine Nicole, Frank Riley, Travis Meadows, Rich Gilgallon, Ed Heethuis, Pam & Richard Field, Tricia Witkower, Chelsea Van Es, Jeff Day, Diana Marlo, Rich Henrich, Lisa & Jaclyn Mahar, BB Ingle, Gerald Noonan, Mike Hammons, Ken Hanna, Lorie Loftis, Kate Spates, Stephanie Greene, American Red Cross Disaster Action Team, Soroptimist House of Hope, Coachella Valley Horse Rescue and Street Life Project.
To my four kids and five grandkids, you are the core of every good thing I do. You make me a better human.
Lisa L. Morgan
And to all who have shown us support.
Thank you for your love, expertise, and models of courage, as we march into the wild future.
