MAYA ANGELOU One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We cant be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest.

…… veterans and 11:11

Veterans Day

There are many veterans in my family and I am proud of each and every one of them. My father was in the Coast Guard so I have a special feeling for that branch.  With this in mind I wish a Happy Veterans Day to you all.


Eleven Eleven

Legend has it that the 11th day of the 11th month is a special day. One in which it is advantageous to make wishes. So here’s your chance….. Post your wishes here (and make them good ones).

My wish is that we move closer to ending poverty, violent unrest, destruction of the environment and distrust among people .

Here’s my song “Eleven Eleven”.

I’d love to hear your wishes…  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your friendship and support.

“Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.  Charles Rangel

As always I am Musically yours,

Gregory

…… the journey

A NOTE TO MY FANS AND FRIENDS

The objective of our quest, of our journey does not change when we encounter resistance, obstacles or glitches…… These should only deepen our resolve……

Our goal is much larger than any of these. As long as our hearts are pure and our intents noble…… we simply press on…… press on.

Musically yours, Gregory
