From the preface by Peter Ives
…but behind the scenes there were hundreds of people in our schools, in our houses of faith, in our businesses and civic organizations, musicians, artists, choirs and choruses, community and public officials, our own mayor, city counselors, and state representatives and most of all, thousands and thousands of children who put pennies in jars in stores and public places all across the city, who gave of their time, and their resources, and their love for this woman who lived in our midst named Sojourner. Honoring Truth is honoring all of you throughout the Pioneer Valley who made the building of this statue the enormous success it became; a statue deeply appreciated, in the end, by everyone.
