    Darlene Mims

    God Bless you and CONGRADULATION Class of 2022.

    Kennedi you chose me to be your mom and I thank you. From the first time I felt you, I knew you were something. You took me on a journey, I ate things I never ate before. I would play a plethora of eclectic music. I can tell whether you like the song or not. If you liked the song, things were, but calm but if you did not like you kicked. I tested it; it was true. I read various book to you every day and also hit the middle C to put you asleep. This journey is amazing to have, on to the next.

    When I gave birth, you were born with a veil over your face. When I saw this, I went to my quiet place, and I asked my heavenly Father what will you have to do? He said Kennedi has chosen you to be her mom. She will belong to the world, so journey will be different I was ready to go. First, we gave a party at two where to write the invitations in your printing. The third birthday party you we had the Science guy. This where you started showing your Science. God told me that you were going to use both sides of your brain. That was extraordinary. The fourth birthday was a professional magician. The magician said that had a voice of an angel. He looked at my audience and said hi to Ms. Brenda Lee Eager. To him Ms. Brenda Lee Eager was the best songstress of Chicago. Ms. Eager brought her grandson to you party. I told Ms. Eager that I had been looking for a singing teacher for Kennedi. God told me she is the one. Kennedi started class with Ms. Eager. Kennedi had been her student 6 months and Ms. Eager let Kennedi open up for her at the Henry Ford Theater. You have been there ever since. You left your mark on your elementary school. In the front of your school a picture of yourself showing yourself as a singer with your line wear and then you are holding a beaker. How apropos This journey was on a roll.

    The next journey was painful. Kennedi you receive all types of all type of accolades, you had the honor of eating lunch with the Supreme Court Justices, you met the Obama Family, and much more. A woman reporter asked you what is your story? You said you really didn’t have a story. The next week you went to Los Angeles for Christmas. I went home and as soon as I washed my hands, the room started spinning, boom I had an aneurysm. God had us exchange our contacts numbers with week before you left. It was for a reason. The doctor told my sister that they thought I was not going live. My Heavenly Father spared my sole. You said to me when I asked you “what is you story? Kennedi you told me my encounter with death was your encounter. You said you felt it when I fell. God said this ‘ journey was going to be rough, but you are going to make it.’

    This next part of the journey has been a secret between God, you and I. This was the time when people were telling me you had plenty of time. You need to stay in a traditional school. Palisades had started a new program. You taught yourself and they had teachers who were suppose to help you. The first two years were O.K.. We had to make a choice. It was one of those choice that no one is going to like. Me, myself, and I made a decision after I had a talk with God said to do it. I took you out of Palisades and did not tell anyone. We decided to check you back into Palisades. You decided that you wanted to star in a play. You did not play a lead role perse, but, they wrote in a solo act in just for you. The teacher said that it the best they ever had a Palisades, The news paper in Palisades said that Kennedi was a lot peoples’ fisherman . People came to wanted your signature, because they saw you as a star. Your High School day ended with a 4.3 . You only applied to two school – Harvard with a full school scholarship and Berklee School of Music. There was no mistake about it, you choose Berklee. I didn’t know how .we were going to make it . On to the next journey.

    The next journey was a very tricky one, so we thought. There were a lot of people who thought the world of you. When it was mentioned that we didn’t know where or how. God answered our prayer for two years. One day we were talking about a scholarship. The next day a scholarship came. God is so good. This journey with me is over. But, I don’t want it to be over. Kennedi will you still let me be your Mother, your guidance counselor, your God Mother? My Heavenly Father says if you choose it, it shall be done. Lets’ take a journey.


    Remember, always treat people the way you want to be treated. Forever let your light shine.

    Love Mommy

  152. Sarah Auerswald

    Congratulations to Kennedi and the rest of the graduating class!! What an accomplishment! You deserve to be proud of all you’ve done!! Well Done!!
