Troy Smith Day in Cleveland - The Ville!

This kid is just a class act. I think he is just awesome and exactly what Cleveland, Ohio and residents of the Glenville neighborhood needed. No, he isn't perfect, no-one is, and he's made some mistakes - which by the way, sportscasters, you don't have to bring up in every single game he plays - but none of that matters. We ALL make mistakes. Sometimes humungous ones. But, he was willing to learn from his mistakes and move on and become better than ever. An excellent lesson for all of us

Plus, he keeps it humble, always gives credit to his coach, offensive line and everyone that helped shape him along the way. Definitely an inspiration to all of the young men, and women, from the Glenville neighborhood, that needed hope. As a Glenville alum, the mother of a young man, an African-American, someone who grew up in the Glenville neighborhood, I am truly proud.

Peace out,
