Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“My father’s birthday… a blessing”)

This man has “associated closely” with Martin Luther King, Benjamin Hooks, Reverend Leon Sullivan, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, Bush (Sr.), Reagan, and we even have a picture of him with a “much younger” Hillary Clinton. This man has done so much and lately he has had to deal with some serious personal struggles, but for me his biggest accomplishment was in “raising us.” He “never” gave me a wrong answer in life, and through all he has been through he made it to October 15th to celebrate his 85th birthday. His name is Elton Jolly, and he is my father. “Thank you, Pop, for giving my life meaning, direction and value.” Happy birthday:)
