Good evening folks! I just got home from this year’s NYABJ Scholarship and Awards Ceremony. I am still feeling the after effect of tonight. I am still absorbing it. Wow. A few things. I did get a chance to say a few words, but I also want to thank my family for supporting my aspirations, and my readers for helping me reach the point where I can broaden my platform to say what many others wont. A special thanks goes out to D.C. Livers for coming out tonight, and looking out on the media savvy advice.
I am the least likely person to make such inroads, all things considered. I do not take any of this for granted. While I will no doubt have to quantify and clarify some of my remarks tomorrow, it is what it is. I welcome that, believe it or not. Blogging is about taking risks, and I am happy to have some of the notions shared here and elsewhere recognized as valid and worthy of serious consideration.

Peace, and see y’all next blog post!
