Black Billionaire ‘Robert F. Smith’ Has To Be 2019’s ‘Man Of The Year’ For His ASTOUNDING Generosity To 430 Graduating ‘Kids’!
This is PRETTY ASTOUNDING!
Now that is what you call GENEROSITY.
He Made My Day. He brought tears to my eyes.
What a marvelous human being.
You have to watch this to see the JOY
— especially among those on the stage.
The full 35-minute speech. Worth watching too.
I will confess that prior to this story I had never heard of him and can’t claim that ‘Morehouse’ has ever registered in my mind.
But, as of today, he will be MY MAN. What a man. What generosity. Such a wonderful windfall for the graduates. Yes, some of them had $200,000 loans. I will admit that that is crazy. But, they don’t have to worry about that now.
Extraordinary man. Comes from good, educated lineage. Both parents had Ph.Ds. Impressive.
This is what GOOD NEWS is all about. Really made my day. Watching the videos (above) brought tears to my eyes.
This is what the U.S. is supposed to be.
This is what greatness is all about.
This now was the OTHER eye.
As a recent fan over the last few years of ‘America’s Got Talent‘ (AGT) I have seen Mel B in action as a judge. That really is about the only exposure I have of her. I am not a fan per se and some of the sordid stuff I read about her has me totally confounded as to how she can appear in so many FAMILY-oriented TV shows.
I saw the story about her RIGHT eye in the U.K. “Daily Mail” a few hours ago. That was shocking enough. How do you go blind in one eye — instantaneously. That is scary. My worst nightmare.
Then I read about her being permanently blind in her left eye — because of a botched laser surgery! Ahhh! I had no idea.
Plus, it should be talked about to HIGHLIGHT the potential danger of lasik surgery. They make it out as so easy and failsafe. Then you read this.
You have to wonder how many millions she got in damages — though in my book no amount of money can compensate for the loss of an eye.
Sad, SCARY and it should be a salutary warning to us all.
Search on ‘AGT’.
More good news for the Navajos and they sure can do with as much as they can get.
On-demand, grid-based electricity is such a necessity. So much else depends on it — phone charging, Internet access, reliable refrigeration etc.
I hope this initiative dovetails with their new efforts to break into Solar Energy.
As we had done last year, we were there for the ‘Spring Cleanup‘ this year too — except this time it was just Teischan (13) & I. Given our ‘success’ cleaning the trolleys last year we volunteered to do that again this year. And again another change. Last year they had two trolleys out. This year just one. The other two were being fixed. Plus, they needed to use the trolley latre that morning to ferry some new employees up the Castle for orientation. So, we only had an hour — maybe an hour and a half at best. We did our best. They wanted us to concentrate on the inside.
Amazing how dirty it gets. I spent a fair amount of time on the brass. Got some of it gleaming.
Beautiful day! The sun was out, in glory, and it was borderline hot. Great day to work outside. Having lunch on the terrace was even better. It was a privilege.
We had fun. Great people and a worthy cause — and you can’t beat the setting.
They have a new — very nice and knowledgeable ‘Director of Buildings & Grounds — Al Sochard. He was very kind and helpful.
A good day was had by all — methinks.
Judging by those that stayed for lunch we didn’t have as many people as last year. But hard to tell. Some left before lunch.
Weather permitting we will be there for the October Clean Up too.
