Four years ago, my first cousin, Jermaine Blake, was shot and killed in MY hood. Jermaine and I were a year apart, and, like most struggling black families then, we often lived in the same house, ran the same streets. He was more like a brother to me.

As “saved” as I try to be, at that time, that part of my life was a blur. Trees looked differently, my conversations changed with my own children and conversations changed with my students. I became very transparent.

I remember what the pastor of my youth, Rev. Melvin Lee (Macedonia M.B. Church, Hyde Park) preached at his funeral. He took notice of how SOOOOO many people showed up for the visitation, as well as the funeral. They just kept coming. It wasn’t that he was surprised that there was a lot of love being shown – hey, it was/is the hard part of North Memphis and we’re Blakes , but, Jermaine was only 30 when he died. So much life ahead of him. Rev. Lee said it was Jermaine’s fragrance that attracted so many people. His mother, Delilah Blake, gave him back to God as a child, so, his purpose was served.

What fragrance are you leaving? No matter what the world thinks or knows or think it knows, what legacy are you establishing? What work will go on once you’re gone? Is it worth continuing? It is worth others being transparent because of what they are learning from you? Think about it.
