He said: "Trains have a very different meaning depending on your heritage and history. Trains mean one thing to European Jews and something completely different to AfricanAmericans. Trains meant a visit to Grandma to me when I was growing up. For friends living in San Francisco in 1978 after the Jonestown masacre, there was a long, long wait for family or friends to be shipped home on a train from Delaware, where all of the victims were sent to from Guyana.

We all sometimes must ride on different trains to get to where we will ultimately end up. We always have trains in common."
