"My prayer has always been to be an example to my own kids, to be an example to the young people of my community, the children of California, every State of the Union, all the kids from Native American Indian Communities, the children that live on US military bases around the world, and all the children from incorporated and unincorporated US Territories. I dedicate this award to God, the next generation of leaders, and to all the mentors that ever imparted the principles of chivalry to me.
