Remember Martin Luther King Jr life and legacy.

We Want To Be Free speech took place on May 26, 1963 a Freedom Rally at Wrigley Field and was recorded by KPFK.

Favorite quotes:

“Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.
Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.
Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.”

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

First and foremost, thanks for following me into 2017. I hope your year is filled with peace, laughter, and success.

This week I do a short episode based on my Facebook 2016 wrap up post:

2016 what can I say?

Plans have failed. Expectations were exceeded. Friendships were created, amended and some are faint. Business continues to cycle. The pain allows me to grow. The mind always reflects. The laughter continues to heal. Your company keeps me sane. I always figure it out. Always.

I could talk about my shortcomings, but God hasn't allowed me to come short. I could talk about my life's highlights, but it was His light that allows me to receive. Grace is before me. Through it all I remain Grateful.

My 2017 mantra and promise Remain True To My Narrative. It will be a Year of Disruption.

2017 Plans:

  • Books
  • Products
  • 2x podcast
  • Consulting
  • Speaking

I Believe In You!
