2008: The Great Debate

First off – Happy Holidays!

I have been chilling in the D since Saturday and this break has been much needed. Just getting the opportunity to lay around the house, kick it with my family, and play with my dog, has all been a blessing. Detroit will always be home and I love getting back here!

Last night, my Dad and I had the chance to check out what I felt was one of the most inspirational movies of 2007. From the minds of Denzel Washington and Oprah Winfrey, The Great Debaters tells the story of Wiley College’s 1935-1936 Forensic Debate team. I won’t give away the movie, but I will say that it definitely motivated me to go after all my goals in this New Year. Just seeing the young people in the film rise above what others expected of them and achieve their goals, made a great impression on me.

This is the year that I will accomplish so many of the goals that I have set for myself. 2007 was the year of laying the foundation, and 2008 will be the year of seeing these projects manifest. I am excited about 2008 man. I hope that everyone goes into this year with great expectations! Happy New Year!
