I had the privilege and honor to provide the live entertainment for "the Greater Houston Frontiers Club's 30th Annual MLK Memorial Scholarship Breakfast" this morning! There were approximately a thousand people in attendance and some of Houston's finest were honored as well including Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston. Len Cannon, News Anchor from KHOU 11. And 2 Time Emmy award winning TV Producer, Rushion McDonald! It was such an honor! I'm happy and blessed beyond words! Happy MLK day!😃 #houston#mayor#khou#mlk#emmyawards#sylvesterturner#lencannon#greaterhoustonfrontiersclub#ghfc
10 nails and two pennies on this early morning speed walk through my neighborhood. #houstonwalks#noflat
Serving my country...and still being able to do my part...my way...means more to me than anyone could ever understand. I still remember all those many years ago as I boarded the plane...trying to be tough ...but breaking down as the wheels came off the ground...and my Mommy was no longer in my view. I did it because I had to...I wanted to be something greater... do something greater and I had NO IDEA where it would lead me. I often wish that I would have stayed active longer... but God has found a way for me to still serve my country..and in these small but epic moments it Reminds me ...that this lil girl who grew up in Beaumont Texas knew that she had a purpose that wud be greater than she even could fathom. To every Veteran...I salute you...I thank you...I honor you. I look forward to continuing to serve...I so thank the City of Houston...The Veterans Special Events office...and the Mayors Office for believing in my gift. I am humbled and honored- DaTruth
Been too busy to post these... from several days walks. 71 items that could puncture a tire, 17 cents, a star and a key. Must be a #luckysign#nailsinthecity
The Defender in partnership with Kelsey-Seybold hosted Conversations & Coffee with Houston Mayor @sylvesterturner at the Kingdom Builders' Center on Saturday. Defender Publisher Sonny Messiah Jiles interviewed Turner in front of a packed house, posing tough questions about the Hurricane Harvey recovery process, future flood prevention efforts, the viability of additional area reservoirs, city finances, minority contracts, education reform, Propositions A-E, and more. Click the link in our bio to view and share all of the photos, and to grade Mayor Turner on his performance thus far in his term.

It was earlier than I would have liked to be up on a Saturday morning, but it was well worth it to hear “The Peoples Mayor” ( I just gave him that title) speak. I am by no means a political person, but I’m starting to understand that voting for the right people makes a world of difference for your community! More important than who the president is, we need to focus on our locally elected officials! They are the ones who push the agenda of the people, or the opposite, their own! November 7th is the last day to vote. You still have an opportunity to not only vote for people who care about your community, but propositions that effect you! Exercise your right!!! #November7th#vote#electionday#doyourresearch@defendernetwork#sylvesterturner
