I didn't know that the discoverer of the polio vaccine was from Pittsburgh, Mr. Saulk, as a pharmacist, I have always had great respect for him.

Gloria Martinez, MexicoBoth Duglas and I were impacted by slavery exhibition even the background music saddened me.
Carlos Baca, Honduras
They kept artifacts and call them antiques that I recognize them from my childhood, hmm, that must make me an antique!!
Alfredo Umana, Honduras
I know Lisa has a strong sense of belonging and Pittsburghers have a strong pride in their city and this has, no doubt, given her a strong platform and base of support to launch from.
