13. MOST HAPPENSTANCE ACCOMPLISHMENT.
In a 1969 discussion at the Vanderbilt Afro House I was trying to make a point. I wanted to use an example which I had learned in Middle Eastern History Class from the professor Dr. Drew about the camel getting his nose in the tent, but I decided to modify and update it, so I talked about ignoring an elephant that got into your living room. It soon became popular on campus and thirty years later it started popping up in debates all over the country.
14. PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS, [A Personal Statement]
I am most proud of the fact that God blessed me to be able to help tend to both of my elderly parents during the final years of their lives; that I was able to help my wife at the time through her last years of college and graduate school; that I was able to attend every athletic contest, recital and program of my two sons, my nephew [3rd son], and my niece, as well as the fact that I was able do something every week with these children while they were growing up; that I was always there for my true friends; that every semester I am able to use my education, training, and experience to guide a few students past the facades of life to see how law, business, society, and politics truly operate in the world; that I have created a small body of scholarly and artistic work that might have some long term merit; and finally that I was able to contribute in a small way toward the peaceful integration of the south.
