The President goes on to say… ”
But, Class of 2013, your path to this moment has wound you through years of breathtaking change. You were born as freedom forced its way through a wall in Berlin, tore down an Iron Curtain across Europe. You were educated in an era of instant information that put the world’s accumulated knowledge at your fingertips. And you came of age as terror touched our shores; and an historic recession spread across the nation; and a new generation signed up to go to war.
(In attendance Annie Leibovitz, Archie Griffin and President Gordon Gee).
President Obama’s Commencement Speech at The Ohio State University Graduation
So you’ve been tested and you’ve been tempered by events that your parents and I never imagined we’d see when we sat where you sit. And yet, despite all this, or perhaps because of it, yours has become a generation possessed with that most American of ideas — that people who love their country can change it for the better. For all the turmoil, for all the times you’ve been let down, or frustrated at the hand that you’ve been dealt, what I have seen — what we have witnessed from your generation — is that perennial, quintessentially American value of optimism; altruism; empathy; tolerance; a sense of community; a sense of service — all of which makes me optimistic for our future…”
“Fifty years ago, President Kennedy told the class of 1963 that “our problems are manmade — therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants.” We’re blessed to live in the greatest nation on Earth. But we can always be greater. We can always aspire to something more. That doesn’t depend on who you elect to office. It depends on you, as citizens, how big you want us to be, how badly you want to see these changes for the better.
And look at all that America has already accomplished. Look at how big we’ve been. I dare you, Class of 2013, to do better. I dare you to dream bigger.
And from what I’ve seen of your generation, I’m confident that you will. And so I wish you courage, and compassion, and all the strength that you will need for that tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
Thank you. God bless you, and God bless these United States of America. (Applause.)”

“When I Hear Jill Sing” By Gregory Mills-El Bey
Aretha Franklin is the queen of soul, Mary J. Blige is the queen of Hip-Hop; so that makes Jill Scott, the reigning queen of Neo-Soul. To hear Scott sing is like, anticipating hearing the angelic soprano in the church choir that the entire congregation encourages to pursue a record deal! To hear Scott sing is like waiting to hear the birds in the morning!
Looking into the brown eyes of 32-year-old Scott, is like looking into the souls of her Harlem Renaissance ancestors, who intended to create music that generations would enjoy. The life music that Scott creates is suitable for the entire family to listen to. No matter your religious affiliations, cultural preference, everyone can enjoy Scott’s sounds and message. When Scott’s music is being played you don’t have to worry about the parental advisory that the music labels are forced to put on some artists CD cases.
Scott’s latest project “Beautifully Human Words and Sounds Vol. II,” is her third album that solidifies Scott as a songstress/diva who doesn’t have to show off her what her mama gave her (flesh) to sell albums; nor does Scott has to apologize for her thick frame in order to be accepted by the mainstream!
“It doesn’t really matter to me who you love, as long as you are loving. The problem is it doesn’t seem like anybody’s loving sisters anymore. We are so out of style. What happened?” said Scott in an Essence Magazine interview. Fortunately, for Scott’s fans and many women who take on a similar frame and frame of mind; Scott is helping to get those sisters to be loved again!
Scott, a North Philadelphia native has added to her artistic resume with appearances on the UPN sitcom Girlfriends and a role in the Showtime movie Cave dwellers, costarring Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick; not bad for a woman who doesn’t fit that Jennifer Lopez Halle Berry mold.
Weather Scott realizes it or not, Scott has become a positive example for all women and for the Holistic lifestyle. To witness Scott’s demeanor on stage and off reminds you of that girl in high school that everyone knew and respected, due to the way she made others feel. Scott’s music is very much needed in a society that has been forced feed to admire gangsters and thugs.
The music industry is a lot like a fickle significant other whom is self consumed in them and who lives by the model ‘what have you done fore me lately.’ However, with Scott’s approach to creating music, admires can wait for a quality project much like music fans did with Sade’s eight year hiatus from the music industry. Scott croons an angelic melody that has lyrics of inspiration, that’s why fans can wait for a quality project such as Beautifully Human Words and Sounds Vol II.
With hits like: Living My Life like its Golden….a subliminal message that weighs heavily on the cerebella and ones subconscious mind; are messages that the music industry needs. Just as the generation X and the new echo boomer generation hears negative stories and messages of being a gangster. Scott is extremely versatile, because if you see one of her live performances you will witness this Neo-Soul diva perform opera. Scott also represents those diamonds in the rough in ‘hoods’ across the country that just need a chance to be heard.
Scott’s music is internationally accepted and brings balance to the universe; and her holistic appeal is the type of music that helps create and sustain life.
