Please.  If anyone can contact Wynton Marsalis concerning a recent event involving a young Afro-American male who was severely burned in an incident that occurred on his school bus.  Tyrone Brooks is an honor student at Intermediate School 61 in the New Brighton section of Staten Island.  He was a victim of a malicious prank by classmates who threw a lit firecracker at him.  Tyrone also plays the trumpet in his school band.  I think it would be a kind gesture if Wynton could go and visit this young man to give him encouragement, help or support.  He is intelligent and a good with his trumpet. Tyrone is a talented trumpeter who plays in the school jazz and symphonic band.  He is in Staten Island University Hospital.  Please Wynton, please see what you can do to help.  Thank you.
