    Chadwick you are a Role model for our African American Males during this event. You make me proud and I can' t imagine how honored you made Denzel feel. My father, Thomas M. Palmer Sr., always told us to reach back and help others. Not matter how high you go in life you must help others. Your toys today and the toys tomorrow for some one else. Amen
