This is the first younger generation wedding I went, hopefully I can live long enough to attend more of them. I still can’t believe my nephew morphed from a little boy to a grown man. I did not know all the people at the wedding, nor did I spend the time to plan it, just watched it as bystander. Put together a few random clips to represent my thoughts. It is at the Riverside Church in New York City. Martin Luther King Jr., Bill Clinton, Cesar Chavez, Jesse Jackson, Desmond Tutu, Fidel Castro, Arundhati Roy and Nelson Mandela have all spoken at Riverside Church.
My Funny Carnival Cruise Talent Show. An Inspiration for Shy Non-Native English Speakers
Do I have any talent? English is not my native language and I have no talent at all. I only have the courage to try to be funny in front of thousand people. I went on the show to inspire my kids and now I am sharing it so that this video can inspire those who might want to but hesitate. I tried to be funny, watch and enjoy.
