"Over these past two months, Buffalo, I have been lucky enough to interact with your people. And, as I’ve roamed your streets and explored your sectors and driven down your roads and attended your festivals , I’ve come to think of myself as one of your people. So, dear Buffalo, thank you. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me."
