It was Bob Marley, the great and mighty singer who inspired the entire world during his time here on earth with his music and vision of the world, who once said, “The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.” And with these words, we remember you today, inspired by your vision of the world, inspired by your audacity, your family life, and by your love for all those you led that we say Happy Birthday, young man. You are still young. You remind me that to be an immigrant is not a curse, that our children we give to America by our presence here can rise to change the world for us, and that, yes, we can be proud of our heritage, whether that heritage is biracial or whether it is part African and part American. May God grant you a hundred more years. God, bless America. God, bless Africa.
