On Wednesday, just a few days before the one-year anniversary of the passing of John Lewis, family, friends and city officials gathered for the unveiling of his statue at a new park in Atlanta’s Westside.

The brothers of the late Congressman joined the mayor and other dignitaries for the ceremonial cutting of the ribbon to open the Rodney Cook Sr. Park in Vine City and christen the statue.

Over time, the park will include a library that will contain the writings of C.T. Vivian and will have 18 bronze statues, plaques and monuments dedicated to peacemakers including Vivian, Andrew Young, Julian Bond and Martin Luther King Jr. (Source: ajc.com)

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
