My dear friend, neighbor and mentor, William T. Coleman, Jr, died this week. He was a leader in the civil rights movement, a great lawyer and the Secretary of Transportation. Find below his New York Times obituary. I recommend you read it to see a story of patriotism, commitment and service. He will be missed.

Country music star Garth Brooks just released a new video this week for the 25th anniversary of his hit song “We Shall Be Free.” It's a very positive message of love and inclusion. I think you'll find it inspiring. Along with a lot of folks you'll recognize in the video, you'll catch a quick appearance by me near the end. Check it out on Garth’s fb page.
