A Concise and Poignant Statement on the Death of Osama Bin Laden
It’s the end of an era. Today marks what many will consider to be a turning point for the United States of America as well as the rest of the world. Freedom has rung it’s majestic bells and a dangerous terrorist has been brought to justice. A crowd has gathered around the White House and Ground Zero and for miles around their cheers can be heard. President Obama has delivered a speech this evening which he began with a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down. I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-air. In West Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days. Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, and shooting some b-ball outside of the school when a couple of guys, they were up to no good. Started making trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared. She said, “You’re moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-air. I whistled for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said “fresh” and had dice in the mirror. If anything I could say this cab was rare, but I thought, “Na, forget it, yo homes to Bel-air!” I pulled up to the house about seven or eight and I yelled to the cabby, “Yo homes, smell you later!” I looked at my kingdom I was finally there to sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-air.
