Thank you, Charles Sharp for the encouragement, the "congratulations" and sharing the discussion with Kelly Armstrong of "Straight Talking With Kelly" about my film "Love Separated in Life...Love Reunited in Honor." It is an honor for me that you shared the link to the discussion with the great leaders and professional members of the Black Emergency Managers Association. The story of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. and Ouida Wright is representative of the millions of law abiding, salt of the earth, everyday Black people that work tirelessly investing their lives for this country to make a way for their families whose stories are not told in majority media. Thanks for helping share the news of Black Family Love that expand generations and racial harmony that is possible when we respect and honor each other. Truly, Jackie Wright, Wright Enterprises
