Tribute to my Parents

This is a great place to add a tagline.

I am ever so grateful to God for blessing me with two of the greatest parents in the world. Parent’s that taught me what real values, morals and principals are. My parents raised 13 of us all together under one roof. They taught us to share, care and stick together as family. They gave us their unconditional love right up to the end of their lives.

They gave so much not only to our family, but to the community, the City of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The legacy of Edward & Earlean Blakely will continue to live on in their children, their over 250 grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren.

As a teenager, I always wanted to open a Creative Arts Center a place where families and friends could come together; broaden perspectives; and fellowship. I wanted to develop a place where people could develop new skills, learn about each other, exchange creative ideas and empower one another. This would be a place where people would have an opportunity and a platform to create their finest works, a place to express themselves, resolve community issues, to help build healthier and stronger families, communities and businesses. Such a center would become a model for all communities and perhaps leave an indelible impact on the world.

I have now launched a new non-profit organization that embodies these endless possibilities and opportunities. Today symbolizes what we can achieve. Through an unyielding commitment, we will work with families, agencies, organizations, churches and the community to elevate individuals to be more positive and productive and harness their greatest ambitions, dreams and goals.

The Edward & Earlean Blakely Creative Arts Center, Inc. exemplifies standards for excellence! We are building and reshaping communities artistically and with care. It is my greatest honor to have named this organization and center after my parents for their diligence, ethics and lifetime of community service. These are the values that they have instilled in me, our family and the Boston community.

Thank you, mom and dad, for making me the man that I am today. I would not be where I am today if not for you. I pray every day that I will continue to live up to be the son and man that you raised me to be. I will always remember that you taught me to always put God first in my life and that everything will fall into place. I trust and believe what I’ve been taught, and I will always be thankful for this lesson.

“To God Be the Glory!”

Your loving Son.
