Proud Father Moment

Please give me a couple minutes to brag about my son. My son Michael took the S.A.T. this past Saturday morning…as a 7th grader. When he aced the California standardized tests in both 5th grade and 6th grade, that put him on the radar for Duke University’s “Talent Inquiry Program” in which they invite 7th graders to take a shot at the S.A.T.

He was a bit nervous because he was standing in line with a bunch of high school juniors and seniors. For a lot of people, this past weekend was about the celebration of one president’s ascension to power, while others were celebrating the final days of another president’s enduring legacy. BUT for me and my family, the weekend was all about celebrating intelligence, talent, and the diligent work of this young man right here.

Soulquarian Quote of the Day

"There is no hip hop manual for growing old...The 22-year-old college grad who used to love the Roots in 1994 never left. He’s just 40 now and has a wife and kids and doesn’t feel like spending all night at a club."
