The Brandenburg 300 Project Honors Lazaro (Lloyd) Pementil
Lloyd Pementil was a farm worker who would work a 12 hour shift, then come back to the labor camp, take a long shower, and come out wearing a 3-piece suit, fedora and two-tone shoes. He would gather the children and play music for them until bedtime. Then he would take his own beloved children and sing them to sleep playing "You Are My Sunshine." To me he was a a hero, a man of great personal dignity, love and joy who took care of the children and brought smiles to everyone around him. He didn't have the resources of an Albert Einstein, or the voice of Martin Luther King, but in doing everything you can to make this world a better place he was every bit their equal.
