One Day It Will All Make Sense

Congratulations and celebrations are in order for entertainers, Common and John Legend, on their Oscar wins for their original song “Glory” for the movie Selma. I am happy for my fellow South-side Chicagoan, Common. I’ve been a fan of his work for years, since he was rocking the beanie hats and wool pants. He’s a very classy dude and his rhymes are very poetic and layered in positivity. His win is opening up the door for writers like me, on the edge of success and stardom. Thanks for being true to yourself. I hope your win also inspires some of our brothers still in the struggle. One day, we will all have our “glory.”
