Bobby Ramirez - Why Am I Here?

Founder and President of JAZZONIAN, Bobby Ramirez(8-30-2011)
Dear friends of Jazzonian:

For a long time I’ve been conceptualizing the mindset of what my place is in terms of Jazzonian. Because I have to know my place before I can inspire people to come along.

Why is Jazzonian here? Why am I here?

Because it starts with people and ends with people. To inspire, educate, and bring people together. Celebrate Jazz heritage. Because Jazz inspire leadership and exceptionalism which is very important for young people to know.
Because I want to do some service for Jazz. Because I want people to experience the joy of Jazz as I do.
Because achieving the goal of establishing a Jazz museum in this area is something unique and creative.
Because I want to make a positive difference in people's lives.
Because I love history, art and photography?
Because I can be part of something that is greater than myself. As part of Jazzonian, I can help empower and inspire the next generation of jazz musicians to become exceptional leaders.
Because I want to help young people discover the great personal value and satisfaction of community service.
Because I want to make a meaningful contribution to the legacy of Jazz. Because I want to be part of an institution that celebrates Jazz 365 days a year. Because I want to help create more performance opportunities for Jazz musicians. Because I care deeply about preserving and advancing the legacy of Jazz.
Because I deeply enjoy promoting the appreciation for Jazz as America’s most original and unique artform.
Because my mission in life is to empower and inspire everyone around me.
Because Jazz has the potential to inspire all kinds of people.
Because Jazz conveys a sense of humility, empathy, hope, and freedom.
