ThrowBack Thursday: Happy Bday to Dr. Michael M. Stoddard


Each Thursday I post a miscellaneous blog/picture/video/article that I have featured in the past or an interview of an extraordinary individual.

This week’s ThrowBack Thursday: Happy Birthday to Dr. Michael M. Stoddard.

Doc Stoddard (princesdailyjournal)

A fellow classmate of mine reminded me that today is Doctor Michael Stoddard’s Birthday. And to commemorate his birthday, I wish to share with you a video, that I recorded back in 2011, of him giving a toast and speech to my classmates on New Year’s Eve.

Failure is not final. Success is not permanent. All that matters in the end is the courage to carry-on.

–Doc Stoddard

Also please read my obituary that I’ve written for Doc Stoddard last year: ThrowBack Thursday: A Tribute to Dr. Michael M. Stoddard.

This week’s ThrowBack Thursday: The Day I Voted for Ed Markey

20140625-170757-61677250.jpg

Today marks the one year anniversary of when I voted for Ed Markey to be the next United States Senator for the state of Massachusetts.

I voted for Ed Markey not just because of his strong commitment towards middle class families, but his strong stance against gun violence–an issue that was (and still is) very important and relevant in our society!

Thank you Senator Ed Markey for representing middle class families and continue to fight to end gun violence in the streets of Massachusetts and across America!

This week’s ThrowBack Thursday Edition: Back 2 Back Reporting at Ed Markey’s Rally for U.S. Senate.

This picture, along with others, was taken one year ago (today), when I attended Ed Markey’s rally for U.S. Senate at Roxberry College in Boston, Ma. At this event I did not only got to see Mayor Menino speak and Ed Markey speak, but the President of the United States speak. It was also at this event that I ran into some of my old colleagues from the Massachusetts Democratic Party.

This opportunity would not have happened without the sincere kindest of my good friend LaDarrel Hagans. Click here to read his story If you haven’t already.

This week’s Throwback Thursday edition: Paul Sullivan, The Taxi Cab Cowboy

I wrote this post to promote my good friend, Paul Sullivan, and his new CD album “A Long Time Comin”. I met the “Taxi Cab Cowboy,” on the night of my birthday (April 30th) last year, when I was looking for a ride home. Not only is he one of the kindest taxi cab drivers in Boston but the most original musicians I’ve heard.

His music is “real” and “bold”; the first words that came to my mind when I listened to his music on the way to my first my Zydeco event. His music is deeply rooted in country and blues which makes it easy for anyone to distinguish if his music is “real” or “watered-down.”

I am pleased to say now that Paul is finishing up his new CD and will have it published in 6-8 weeks, if not sooner.

This week’s Throwback Thursday edition: The IRS, A New Face to Jim Crow

943701_10200725607998063_2140817292_n

I wrote this political report exactly one year ago today in lieu of the IRS scandal, which the IRS discriminated against multiple tea party groups in their struggle to gain “tax exemption” status. The purpose behind this was to educate my audience on how the same tactics used by the IRS (to discriminate against the Tea Party) also resembled the same tactics used against African Americans in their struggle to gain a crucial right from the U.S. Constitution: The Right To Vote. And how it took 100 years to gain this right, versus 2-4 years to gain “tax exemption” status from the IRS. We may come from different walks of life, but we all experience the same hardships

ThrowBack Thursdays: Sean Sheppard


Every Thursdays I will miscellaneously post an article that I’ve written in the past or an interview of an extraordinary and interesting individual.

This week’s ThrowBack Thursdays: Sean Sheppard.

20130918-221104.jpg

I had the pleasure of knowing the Good Sheppard at this year’s annual SAAB signature dinner program at my alma mater San Diego State University. I selected him as an interesting person because I was captivated by his personal story; and how he was using God’s talent to help homeless people in the City of San Diego. Through his nonprofit organization called Embrace he is bringing college students and volunteers together, to create ways to help the homeless and enrich them with important life values that have seemed to be forgotten in this fast changing world.

“Thank you Sean for allowing me to interview you. And continue to be the Good Sheppard that you are to San Diego!” –Prince

I had the pleasure of knowing LaDarrel Hagans during my short time in Boston. Unaware of his deep connections in Boston Politics, he showed me great kindness and introduced me to one of Boston’s premier stars: State Sec. John Kerry (check out my Twitter pic). He is an accomplished community organizer and has helped prestigious candidates get into office.

Thanks Darrel for being a good friend and I look forward to meeting up with you soon. (I’m always on the go but I’ll do my best to meet up with you soon).
