A Good Name Is Worth More than Gold – Jackson Limousine

 Once again the limousine has arrived in the form of hope and great food for thousands of poor people who have been subjected to some really hard times and circumstances these days. They got a great deal of relief from Mr. Jackson, the owner of the greatest limo service on earth. People if you want to lead by example this is what you should do.

First of all, save up all your well-earned money and tips from your labor. Wait until the greatest time of the year in our country and give back some if not all of your blessings to a group of orphaned and disenfranchised people, like the ones Mr. Jackson and his staff feed every year for free.

This brother starts planning his give away the day after he gives away the thousand upon thousands of pounds of food. When I saw this brother help all those poor people I said to myself, “Wow, now that is how you take a bite out of crime!” We all know that around this time of the year, especially for poor people, it is very easy to be denied a decent chance of getting something to eat.

Mr. Jackson and some of his great friends have decided that it is better to allow a family to get together at home this time of year and sit down and eat as a family as a way to restore some of the family values that we have been afraid of. This brother and his kind staff don’t just hand you a turkey and shove you on, they offer you a chance to receive some respect along with a kind word to help you with your heavy box of food. Folks, there were thousands of happy faces on Thanksgiving Day. For some reason I think Mr. Jackson should have been a postman because he comes through for us, rain, hell, snow or shine–either in the form of doing a great job driving your favorite stars or taking a trip to Louisiana to fight against injustice.

This brother has not asked the poor people for one dime. His thing is to do the work and GOD will bless you with a great reward. Jackson, we here at the Sentinel and beyond respect your talents and intentions toward making a difference. What I have seen you do as a small but mighty business is equal to what we expect from firm who have tremendous wealth and blessings.

My advice to them is to just give back something to the poor in the form of respect and opportunity to help advance them to another level of thinking. Mr. Jackson I have to give you the Sentinel award of the week for your outstanding efforts in helping to eradicate the plight of our people both Black, Brown and poor Whites.

Within your ranks you have all sorts of people that you have attempted to help over the years. So Blackman may God bless you and your staff for their help. THANK YOU Mr. Jackson and we hope that people from this point on, rich and poor, have the chance to support your car services which has carried us to opportunities to walk the red carpet of life. I truly think that this type of action on behalf of Mr. Jackson only lends credence to the fact that we can and should take care of the poor in the hood. This thing with us not having respect for the little man has to stop. That’s why I felt that this article is timeless and very essential to record the good deeds that we will someday reflect upon to see who did what for who and how.
