My efforts for American Epiphany I dedicated to the honor of my parents, Ken and Marian Poynter, who instilled in me the belief that America is the greatest hope for mankind and each of us has the responsibility to live up to her ideals; and in memory of my brother, Randy Poynter (1954-2002) who worked tirelessly to make this country a better place for his family and his fellow citizens and to ensure it survives intact for future generations. – Andrea McDaniel
