Shouts of love and admiration to the Martin Luther King Celebration Choir Committee of Brazoria County who hosted an empowering, soul-stirring and soul-searching musical extravaganza. We salute the program coordinators — Sam Williams, Dale Ballard, Charlene Moore, Alice Moore, Lizz Bates, Mary Hall and Bessie Neal. We give prominence to all musicians, guest clinician Minister Quinten Simon, Pastor Roland Hendricks, Bishop Fred Jones, Pastor Joseph Mayes, Patrick Williams and Unity in Praise Choir, New hope Baptist Church Choir and all of the melodious voices of praise who captivated the parishioners with a variety of musical selections. We cannot but show high esteem to the chairperson of the MLK Celebration Committee, Dorothy Thomas; founders, Theresa Jackson and Terry Gordon; and the countless assistants and volunteers who make Brazoria County proud. Thank you and blessings to each of you for directing us to God, nurturing our youth, and modeling the virtues of the Christian Life by honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Shout out to my 3 neighbors and my boyfriend who walk with me,while I go through life on a roller coaster, sometimes not of my making. I love the support they give me and understanding, even when I feel like I hit rock bottom. I am grateful for the community helping me with little things to let me. I am OK.
