    I can look back too 1980 in Baltimore when Oprah spoke at our 9th grade graduation at Clifton Park then junior High School when she said to us that we’ve only begun our life and don’t give in to presures of failure continue to strive for greatness, those words she spoke to us were her light inside as I see now she has gone on to become great how she has inspired many, love by all men and women alike I’d like to thank her for given me a look at what motivated her inside the strength in her words has even given the world our first Black President of the United States, THANK YOU OPRAH we all LOVE YOU.
