''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 herself 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. I just wanna say I love you mom, thank you for teaching me to dream. To my brother, Shannon, the best big brother in the world, you’re a true artist, thank you for sharing this insane and amazing adventure that is 30 Seconds to Mars and for being my best friend, I love you.''
