Rev. Wilkins241 views"You see, after so many years of pressing down hard on the colored man, a
person (the onebeing pressed upon) gets something like a diamond. Now that
diamond is hard, but it is still the most highly dollared paid for stone in the
world. Every Negro got one of them diamonds on the inside. The only problem is that they just don't know that much bout mining those diamonds." --Lane Wilkins

Hawkeye at Grafton JFK School201 views"Hawkeye" told me at dinner one night that he loves doing what he does. With a huge boyish grin on his face, he said, "I get to PLAY the guitar......I get to PLAY the guitar......" Then he smiled from ear to ear. He claims his youthful looks are partially due to loving what he does in life.
