Nobody had the you-know-what to do that and he did get a lot of flack because he put a funky beat behind it and changed it up and by the end of the song people were clapping their hands to the beat and women were screaming and throwing their underwear on the court. That doesn’t happen when people sing the National Anthem. I think people were taken aback by how brilliant it was. But he was terrified. Before he went out he said, ‘People are going to murder me.’ But that was who my dad was. He would think about things like that and then do what he wanted anyway if he felt it was true and right. He wanted to do something that would move the minds of men.

Better late than never - This has been sitting around and i’ve been meaning to post this but didn’t have the proper chance.
Made this rendition of mybest friend’s doodle that was drawn long ago and i just wanted to show my appreciation to him. It might not be much but note that i do love you with all my heart. May we proceed the following years with being best chums. And with all the struggle that this past year brought; may we become stronger from them. I Hope to see you again in person real soon ♥♥♥
