Another Tribute to Kobe Bryant–Play The Game, Not the Man


300px-Kobe_Bryant_8

“There’s 30 seconds on the shot clock; your team mates are covered except for you. People are out of their seats, cheering from the stands, and you are separated from the basket by one man. The ball is now in your hands, what do you do? Sometimes we get so caught up with the person in front of us, that we lose site of our goal, which is behind the person. However, its people like Kobe Bryant that reminds us that our eyes should be fixated not on the person but the goal above our heads.”

I just heard the news that my favorite basketball player, Kobe Bryant, became the 3rd all-time leading scorer in NBA history–surpassing the great Micheal Jordan. It is great feats like this that have inspired me to look beyond my opponents and go after my goals in life. So inspired by his abilities–to stun the world by making the impossible look easy–that I actually wrote a post about him (my first post on the WORLD WIDE WEB!).

Watching him weave through 3 guys for a dunk, or making an incredible shot from outside the 3 pt arch with 10 seconds on the shot clock has taught me to never be distracted by the person in-front of you–don’t even look into his eyes. Kobe Bryant is one of those few players that rarely goes toe-to-toe with an obstacle or a player; nonetheless fights or calls out his opponents. He always fixates his eyes to the goal and not the person in front of him. If we all can do that, then we all can accomplish our goals and appreciate life a little more–hating our opponents or letting obstacles keep us away from our goal is not how you play the game. Play the game of Life!

   “Thank you Kobe for inspiring me. And congratulations on your latest victory. I am once again glad to see you back on the court–showing the world that an Achilles heel won’t keep you down from playing the game!” –Prince Sefa-Boakye

Prince Sefa-Boakye interviews Scott Lively, Pastor Running For Massachusetts Governor


Scott LivelyDr. Scott Lively is a full-time missionary pastor who preaches the word of God in the inner-city of Springfield, Massachusetts. Scott is running for one reason: to bring Biblical values back into the politics of Massachusetts: Anti-Abortion, Natural Family, and Basic Conservative Values. Values, which he said still defined the grassroots of the Republican Party. Dr. Scott Lively is a man of many trades: he is a building contractor, Christian social activist, and a constitutional lawyer–all the while earned his doctorate in Theology. He is a fifth generation Massachusetts citizen and his family has been here since the 1620s.

(UR Business Network): Scott Lively, Pastor Running for Massachusetts Governor

Scott tells me that he is grieved by the decline of Commonwealth’s neo-christian values–values he said has been handed down for five generations. He is tired of seeing the rise of the Marxist philosophy, pervading his beloved Commonwealth state and his country, and wants to put a stop to it. Two tasks that he will accomplish as the next governor of Massachusetts is Micro-financing in inner-city neighborhoods and a citizen oversight panel to scrutinize corruption in government.

As a full-time missionary he has traveled to over 40 countries, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ to countries (in Africa) that have little resources. It was during his missionary work that he saw the power of Micro-financing, which donors gave small loans to inspired farmers and push-cart merchants and taught them basic business and entrepreneurial skills. The results, he said, were tremendous and the people in Africa were able to pull their own bootstraps, pull themselves up out of poverty, and be successful. Dr. Lively says, he sees too many inner-city families (going back to three generations) that are dependent on the government. He quotes a Jewish proverb: “If you give a man fish, he eats for a day. But if you teach a man how to fish, he eats for a lifetime.” This is what inspires him to break “government-dependency” in inner-city neighborhoods. Then lastly he wants to institute a citizen oversight panel chosen by lottery, to oversee the corruption in government and have a panel of lawyers to prosecute corrupted public officials. He sees too much greed in politics and wants to put a stop to it.

Dr. Lively understands that he speaks differently from the rest of the candidates, but one thing he wants to tell you is that he is honest and a straight-talker, even if you don’t agree with his views. He does not engage in mudslinging, he is not here to pander votes, and he is not a cardboard cut-out. He is an independent who wishes to restore Christian values back into the Commonwealth.

What I can tell you, from my experience, is that it was a beautiful procession and dedication to the Former Mayor of Boston. When I passed by his casket, to pay my respects, I saw a gentle smile from the gentle giant himself letting me know that he is okay. Rest in Peace Mayor.

Mimi Ford, was fortunate to tell her first-hand experience with us of having acid poured on her and others in a pool during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Unfortunately, she told us that the man who committed shameful crime was not brought to justice, even till his death which was two years ago.

Here is video footage of the Panel Discussion

A big thank you to Suffolk University Law School and fellow 1L student Nehemie Cange for making this event possible.

#FullCircle: I am What I am Because Someone Loved Me


IMG_8416

#Fullcircle. I couldn’t muster the words of what he really meant to me that night. So Here’s my story:

When I was 16 years old, I struggled to find my identity as young black male in High School. I had the mind and soul of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Fredrick Douglass, Bob Marley, Nelson Mandela but I was not accepted because I was too different or what people may call “radical”–I was so conflicted by the stereotypes in music, television, and social cliques, that I didn’t know “Who I was” at that time. However I pushed through those negative stereotypes, because of what one voicemail did for me. A voicemail that was left for me by none other than Dr. Cornel West.

In pursuit of finding my voice in High School, I wrote a speech called “Fear”–a speech that came to be the cradle of my creativity and charisma. But the problem was, nobody REALLY took the time to consider what I had to say–most importantly my ideas. And so, I did the most tenacious thing a high school student could ever do: send a letter to one of the most well-known and respected professors in the academia world today, Dr. Cornel West, and ask for feedback (and possibly a letter of recommendation). Although I didn’t get everything that I wanted, his voicemail was more than enough to put me on a right path to college, where I’ve graduated honorably from SDSU, and evidently into Suffolk Law School.

This month marks the 8th year anniversary of a voicemail of a lifetime, when a young man’s future is shaped by the words of a hero: love, compassion, and courage to chase your dreams.

That night was so emotional that I ended up crying because I am in Law School now; I’ve done so many great things since that voicemail. I spent all of my college years traveling across the country (from California to New Jersey and New York) to remind him of “Who I am.” But now I didn’t go anywhere. He came to me in a town where I have called my second home, Boston. And I reminded him again but only this time with, “I am what I am because you loved me.”

I want to send Harvard Book Store “A Special Thank You” for hosting this event, and making this FullCircle Experience possible. And once again I apologize to those who didn’t get their chance to ask their questions due to my tearful testimony. I hope Dr. Cornel West was able to answer them.

Thank you Dr. Cornel West; it has truly been a long journey for me. I will continue to love the way you have loved me when I needed it.
