Quote: I am inspired by the morning and how it continues to give us the hope of creating something unimagined. Mizna means “cloud in the desert.” We liked the metaphor of the guiding, leading, cooling cloud that leads the traveler to the destination. We thought it was perfect for our organization, which strives to be innovative and at the same time affirming to the community.
