In 1971, Bossier City, Louisiana. There was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school drop out and a single mom. But somehow, she managed to make a better life for her self and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative, to work hard, and to do something special. That girl, is my mother, and she’s here tonight. And I just want to say, I love you mom thank you so much for teaching me to dream. To my brother, Shannon, the best big brother in the world, you’re a true artist. Thank you so much for sharing the insane and amazing adventure with 30 Seconds to Mars and for being my best friend. I love you, thank you
