Moment to shine

Just a quickie today but I want to give a shout-out to my lil brother, today he graduates with his Masters in Real Estate. In a world where twenty-seven year old Black men with no kids and no prison records is supposedly a rare thing, watching a young Black man do his thing is always worth celebrating.

Today is bittersweet though as my brother started this journey 5 years ago, when our mother was battling cancer he left the country to go to grad school in Canada. Sadly her death changed the plans and my brother had to come back to the states since one less parent meant less funds to pay for grad school. Yet my brother hung in there and eventually worked and went to school at the same time.

Bro, know that our Mama’s presence is with you today, Miss M is proud and while sadly I am in Maine preparing for another round of winter weather, know that I celebrate this day with you.

So, excuse me but I just had to give a shout out to my lil brother…now I must go to prepare for this storm. Have a good weekend all.
