At Dr. Maya Angelou’s memorial service, First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech blew my mind. Oprah’s words were phenomenal. Ms. Tyson's reflections were heartwarming. Lee Ann Womack sang my favorite song, “I Hope You Dance”. Valerie Simpson made me want to shout for joy. But it was something that former President Bill Clinton said that shook something in me. He was talking about her life and all that she had done. All of her books, poems and accolades. She worked with civil rights giants including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He went on and on and then he said, “On her 40th birthday Dr. King was assassinated.” I thought, to myself, “Dear God, she had done all of that by 40.”

I'm 44, I'm behind… LOL. I got so inspired. Her life was such an example to all that you can achieve, whatever you'd like, no matter where you came from. Sitting in that chapel I could hear her voice on my phone as it had been many times. The conversation would always start with "Hello you brilliant man". She made me light up and feel like I could do anything. That was her gift to us all. And above the beauty of the celebration of her life yesterday, more than anything in that room, what I felt most was her life calling us all higher.

God, thank you for allowing us to have shared this planet with Dr. Maya Angelou.

Hello Mr. Perry, I have an idea for an animated series inspired by the bible. I have grown up to your many works both plays and movies and they have inspired me so much. I am 22 years old now and would like to share my story with you. My mom started suffering with Migraines in 2011 after our church closed and my grandpa passed away. Due to that my mom, little brother and I worked hard and struggled for many years. In 2012 I started college at The Art Institute of Philadelphia and after a year of school I finally got a job. Due to my mom's migraines she could no longer work or even get out of bed most days, so I eventually had to start sacrificing some days of school for more hours at work to help at home. We had opened our home to many people in this time only to have those people use and abuse our kindness. Our family has not been there for us at all so it has literally been just me, my mom and my brother. Eventually, I found out that dropping too many classes was putting me into academic trouble at my school, I was not aware of this. My situation at home had not changed even to this day so I ended up having to leave The Art Institute and start working full time. In between these times I have been working on my series adding more to the characters, drawing and designing them, laying out a timeline. I even have a script for the first episode done already. I plan to do a storyboard soon as well if I can get the money for a program to do it with but if not I will use paper. I would really like to speak to you about and pitch the series to you.

In my prayer and quiet time at 5am, I was praying about how to (one day) be the best father that I can be. I have no doubt that I will be a great dad, but as I looked back in my life for an example, all I could remember were all of the horrible things that were said and done to me as a kid. But before I could get sad about it, I remembered something I wrote a while back about "learning in reverse".

If you are like me and had no good examples, then your lesson is in reverse. I learned many years ago that if I do the opposite of what was done and said to me then I have learned how to be a good father some day. Which lead my mind to a line in one of my favorite songs of all time. It's called “Mary Did You Know”. I've written about this before, but I think it's worth sharing again.

The song is about Mary, the mother of Jesus, and in the song the lyrics ask the question, “Mary, did you know that the child that you delivered will soon deliver you?” Such a powerful question. I want to ask parents this question today. Do you know how special your child is? Do you know who God has put into your house? I know sometimes you think it's just your child but I'm sure many parents of children who went on to change this world had no idea who was sleeping down the hall from them. Be careful, because the child that you delivered may one day have to deliver you. Meaning, the very child that you gave birth to and you took care of in your youth may be the child that has to take care of you as you age. If my mother was alive she would testify, I'm sure.

My prayer for us today:

I pray this morning, oh God, for every parent of children born and yet to be born to have a clearer understanding of the blessing that their child is. I also pray for the safe return of the Nigerian girls. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Have a beautiful day.

Yo Tyler's in the house! Man I never watch your shows since single year, but I could try once if that's okay with you. Now that you expected how would you like to make more million dollars, and spent it on to your wife? Eh but if you change your mind, you could even offer by making more billions dollar. If you don't then your show sucks now what do you say man hard on cash, or deal or no deal? That's what I'm talking okay have the rest of your time and keep saluting.

There is a reason I named a sound stage in Ruby Dee’s honor at my studio. When she christened it we were all on our feet and in tears. God, how I wish young people knew the price that these people have paid for us all to live the lives we have today.

Our elders are bidding us adieu, while at the same time saying "it's your turn now child." Lift someone. Help someone. Encourage someone. Celebrate someone. Let your life be an example and let your death speak volumes about who you were and what you have done to leave humanity better.

Rest Ms. Ruby Dee. 91 years of lifting us all deserves one last standing ovation! We’re on our feet for you. God bless. We know your eyes are watching God.

Ruby Dee is one of the most amazing actresses on screen and Broadway. She and Ozzie Davis were a phenomenal duo.

There have only been a handful of people in my life who have moved me, inspired me, encouraged me, and helped mold the man I am today. One of those people would be Dr. Maya Angelou. She was a woman I called "friend".

Her words and her spirit are too powerful to leave this earth with her passing. Her legacy and poems will take wings, forever landing at the foundation of anything that betters humanity. Dr. Maya Angelou will live on in all of us who called her a phenomenal woman, phenomenally.

She is loved and will be missed.

Mary J threw down at the party. And then Stevie decided to get on the piano and do a few impromptu songs. It was so amazing.
