To Whom It May Concern: Bill To Fight Illegal Ivory

To Whom It May Concern: Bill To Fight Illegal Ivory

To whom it may concern:
I wholeheartedly support the ivory sales ban bill pending in New York State.
I am a piano player. And I realize that ivory piano keys are preferred by some pianists.

But magnificent creatures like these can never be replaced.
Music must never be used as an excuse to destroy an endangered species.
Music should be a celebration of life - not an instrument of death.
Billy Joel
