Re: “Remembering Rosey

Claire,

I commend you for being bold to take a stance on behalf of Roosevelt. First, and foremost, Roosevelt Thompson will forever remain a genuis, and his love for people and his boldness to speak out against wrong doing, will forever be a torch for ALL people. It is so awesome that his humble beginnings and family upbringing allowed him to dream, and achieve all that he ever set out to accomplish.

From our days of going to Southwest - to Forest Heights - to Central High, he was a born leader. His words oftentimes were few, but like E. F. Hutton, when he spoke, everyone listened; including then Governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton - who became our 42nd President of the United States of America. Isn't it amazing that even in death, his voice is heard and he is still reigning as a leader; he still molds us together, and his lifestyle and temporary existence of life on earth - taught and still teaches us how to spread love for the human race. He understood the concept, and so do I - "It's O'k to Leave the Plantation!" Freedom comes from within and no one should ever be bound by "The Rope," both of these wonderful books are penned by my good friend, Mason Weaver. It applies to the legacy of Roosevelt Thompson and each of us who had the privilege of knowing him, will always have a zest for life, and through his legacy - we can spread his wisdom and love of people for generations to come.

Rosey's Leadership was Successful then, and is MORE SUCCESSFUL today!
He, of course, would have never been Condaleeza Rice, Thomas Sowell or Walter Williams, he would be, "President of the United States, "Roosevelt Thompson!"

Thank you Class of 1980 - Little Rock Central High
Thank you Class of 1984 - Yale University
Thank you, "Heavenly Father" for sharing one of your chosen best with us!

Please make donations in honor of his memory to the Roosevelt Thompson Scholarship Fund, and whenever in Little Rock, please visit the Roosevelt Thompson Library.

To the Thompson Family, I love you and always keep you in my prayers.
