Madea's Big Happy Family - Go See It!

Last evening, Leonard and I decided that we needed a real good laugh, you know, something to take our thoughts off of other things that are currently happening in the world. We heard on KJLH Radio that Tyler Perry's "Madea's Big Happy Family" was opening up tonight. So, we jumped into our whip and headed to The Promenade at Howard Hughes Center to the 8:15pm showing of "Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Family". We got there early so that we could get some good seats because the theater was packed with people rushing to see the movie. Tyler Perry's Mother wit and timing was excellent! The film makes one think about the choices that they make regarding business, family, spouses and life.

The entire cast was excellent. Tyler Perry truly gets into character as Madea, bringing home major thoughts and ideas regarding what's important and what's not. Loretta Divine's character, Aunt Shirley, is a kind, loving, caring mother that gives so much to her children and they take and take and take advantage of her. You've just fall in love with Aunt Shirley. Shad "Bow Wow" Moss plays the teenage son, Byron, who has a son and gets involved with women that seem to be concentrated on making Byron a "Bad Boy" for life. Shad "Bow Wow" Moss is one of my favorites in film and off the screen. He is one of the most respectful teenagers that I've ever met in Beverly Hills.

I wish Tyler Perry, Loretta Divine, Shad "Bow Wow" and the entire cast much continued success! You all are ON IT!!!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.- From The Mountain Top

There's so much irony w/regards to American and British history.

On April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., gave his last heart wrenching speech,

" I Have Been To The Mountain Top".

On April 4, 1968, a sniper took his life, in Memphis, Tennessee.

Just thinking about how and why he was murdered still brings tears to my eyes.

If only Dr. King Jr. could see that he paid the price for Global change. If only he could see how far we have grown as a Nation in 43 years.

Dr. King Jr., if only you could see the first Black President - President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama break down barriers; yesterday they traveled across the ocean to the U.K., for the G20 Conference. During the G20 Reception at Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II, of England, broke protocol to embrace the First Lady.

This is a first in British and American history.

It was truly symbolic of change.

Dr. King Jr.,The Obamas' would make you proud. They are intelligent, capable, fearful of God - and they love each other. President Obama and his wife are what you hoped and prayed for. They are what we need Globally today to help move this beautiful country forward. Why? Because they represent red, yellow, black, white and brown. They represent America.
