This is my first blog of 2014. I just saw Kevin Durant’s speech after he won the Kia 2013 Most Valuable Player Award for the NBA. I’ve seen several of these speeches. Dennis Rodman’s being one of my favs until now. Kevin Durant, who grew up in the same county as me, Prince George’s County, MD, really showed humility and grace while accepting this prestigious trophy. He had a single mom like myself and said that his mom is the real MVP. I thank him for reminding me that my mom was my MVP as well. She is the reason I’m here today. My mom is and was the rock that got me over the hump so to speak. Here’s Kevin’s speech if you didn’t catch it.
Thanks Kevin for the inspiration. You make me proud to be from P.G. County.
