The Miracle of Christmas

I was sitting on this couch at about 4 p.m. on Christmas Day, preparing to go to dinner. About an hour later, it looked like this.

And the rest of the room looked like this. What a difference an hour makes! Tornadoes swept through Mobile, AL and fortunately no fatalities were reported. They came through as people began their Christmas dinners, making the event even more remarkable. While the house suffered damage, no people did. And that was a miracle.

Bleu Priding Rising... FAST

The last week has been a busy one! On Saturday I was with the Dallas area alums to share the message of Bleu Pride Rising. I stayed in Dallas a few days to attend the accreditation meeting. I am having to relearn SACS since it has changed since I left the region in 2004.

Last night I was in Detroit with our alumni there, including incoming Alpha Phi Alpha president Mark Tillman '88. I feel our alumni base being galvanized and I am sure we'll see results soon.

Anuual Christmas Concert

Last night I attended my first Dillard University Christmas concert. I arrived on campus about an hour before the event started, and there was already a significant crowd. As soon as the concert started, I knew why.

Simply outstanding! The entire concert was a treat. Not only did the choir perform well, but did guest soloists, the orchestral group, our dancers, and the female octet.

The audience was very appreciative as well, often feeling the spirit from the voices of the singers. This was definitely not over-hyped, because all of the advanced praise was well deserved.
