25 Years…And Change

I am back where it all began, in Washington, D.C., to cover the presidential inauguration of one Barack Hussein Obama Jr.

and awed by the experience, never more so than now. I’ve traveled all over the country, and to many places outside of it. I’ve met many amazing people, from jazz giant Miles Davis to dealmaker extraordinaire Reginald F. Lewis—and yes, President Obama, when he was a U.S. senator and presidential candidate. I feel just as geeked and blessed and overwhelmed as I did 25 years ago.

Today, on the day of the 2009 King Holiday Observance, I am back where it all began, in Washington, D.C., to cover the presidential inauguration of one Barack Hussein Obama Jr. I can hardly wait for my next assignment.

    Mr.Edmond,

    You have come full circle.You realized your dream as you took it twenty years ago when you sat in my dormority room. I remember you from Rutgers Univ. You were good friends with Sonya Kimble,and Wanda Brown. I was the former roomate of Wanda Brown.

    Anyhow my email is an attempt to network to try and locate a person perhaps w/ in communications division or someone like Renita Burns,mentioned as the author of a few of the real estate articles published by BE, who may have some familiarity with real estate, or put differently understanding and is able to articulate the dynamics or power of investing in real estate.

    I am an attorney but I also President of a non-profit organization in Harlem and I am trying to develop and prepare a home ownership seminar for mid-March. My focal point is to identify an individual/speaker who can build the concept of empowerment into the seminar to encourage/promote the theory of investing-help a community of color to demystify their thinking re investment.

    Any input you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I NOTICE THE BE WEBSITE DOES NOT HAVE A CONTACT US LINK SO THIS IS MY ONLY SOURCE OF REACHING OUT.THANK YOU AGAIN AND BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.
