MLK Jr. and Me

Today, in the USA Today newspaper, there is a feature on page 17A regarding the layout of the MLK Jr. National Monument. The monument overlooks the Tidal Basin and Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Back in 1996, when I worked at the White House, I was the writer assigned to compose an official presidential letter (signed by Bill Clinton) to Coretta Scott King. The purpose of the letter was to mark and celebrate the occasion whereby President Clinton signed Congressional Legislation proposing the establishment of a memorial to honor Dr. King.

When I visit DC next time, I’ll definitely make an effort to visit the memorial. I only have a loose connection to it, but personal connections with history are pretty cool.

 
No HBS

The other day, I received official word that I have not been accepted for the Harvard Business School PhD program to which I had applied. I’m ok with that result. I thoroughly enjoyed the application process, and, along the way, I learned some interesting stuff about myself. I am also happy to report that the application process gave me an opportunity to model some important behavior for the 16-year-old Foster Youth kid that I mentor. As a result, he’s much better prepared to apply to college next year.

I wasn’t really expecting to be admitted… but you never know if you don’t try. Perhaps life has other things in mind for me!

So I guess I won’t be rubbing shoulders with Tyra Banks. Oh boy, that made me chuckle!
