Dear Ms. Lunelle,
The stroll through downtown Tampa and along the River Walk with the Southern Cross that we both had in hand, and the conversations the Honorable Attorney David McCalister and I had with so many
people, or the many photographs we posed for last evening, May 2, 2016, seemed pale in comparison to the activities of today, May 3, 2016. Thereby, I shall forego that reporting for Chapter 8 of the book
I am constantly being urged to write.
I would spend most of the evening of May 2, 2016, reading the brilliant brief outlining the lawsuit that Mr. McCalister had prepared against Les Miller in his capacity as Chairman, Hillsborough
Board of County Commissioners, Hillsborough County, Florida and Veterans Memorial Park Museum Committee, Inc. I was beside myself with joy. Notice of the lawsuit would appear on the front page of the
Tampa Tribune on Tuesday morning, May 3, 2016.
Shortly thereafter, Attorney McCalister and I would appear on the morning radio talk show of WFLA hosted by the Honorable Jack Harris and the Honorable Ted Web and, later in the morning, the Al
McCray Tampa Bay News & Talk Radio Show. It was becoming increasingly clear that a lot of folks including myself were beginning to conclude that the Hillsborough County Commissioners had broken the
peoples trust, and I truly believe they should all tender their resignations.
I would end the day with a visit to King High School with a lecture to their ROTC and History classes. It was not enough the grand ovation that they gave me after an hour; they would also present
me with a beautiful King ROTC workout suit. I could not thank Master Sgt. Chris Blake and my babies enough for allowing me to come into their school and lecture about not only the most courageous
soldier ever in the history of mankind, but also the women of the South who fought a war of their own with the same courage, and never to forget his African family that he considered friend, whose
support helped keep him on the field of battle against an army that had illegally invaded their homeland for four long years.
And not to be remiss in my duty, I would also thank Mr. McCray who, like myself, was don in the uniform of the Southern soldier for taking me to a Soul Food restaurant where not only those who served
us, but also the many patrons, greeted us with a great deal of pomp and respect. God bless you!
