Michael is one of my heroes! This picture was from my first trip to ECCHR with Michael and Vince when I started at CCR three years ago. It was on this trip that I had my first opportunity to sit down one-on-one with Michael as we had breakfast in a Berlin hotel. What surprised me the most in getting to know Michael was that he is equal parts tenacious freedom fighter and supremely humble mentor/friend. While he had then (and still has every right) to scoff at my crazy ideas as a young radical lawyer-he never did/does. Instead he encourages me to think bigger, be more daring and never back down! Looking forward to many more lessons from Michael over breakfast! Michael, Karen, Ana & Jake
