NAMI visited the "City By The Bay" for the 2009 national convention.
It was a week of remembrance, celebration, friendship, sharing and -- above all -- hope. Perhaps the biggest thrill came on Wednesday evening when Nathaniel Ayers, the title character in The Soloist, enchanted attendees with a virtuoso performance on cello and violin.
Footage of his performance can be found in the Day 3 coverage of the convention.
