A Mayor's Life

In the book "A Mayor's Life" by David N. Dinkins he enlightened, shared his experience and told his story by leaving a proof of life. 


"You don't have to be loud to be strong."

LEGACY

Graceful, honorable, intelligent and regal are a few words to describe New York's First Black Mayor Mr. David N. Dinkins. In which I had the opportunity and pleasure of meeting. In the video above he speaks on the importance of education. His qualities are admirable to face life challenges, changes head on and do so with integrity, strength and reservation. I am proud to learn history and observe your life's physical assignments, may your spirit be the guiding light for others to follow. Thank you for your dedication, impact, leadership, service and prestigious hard work. You are appreciated with gratitude.
