George: I was trying to lead the way. We needed a leader! Someone to lead the way to safety.
George’s Girlfriend: But you yelled ‘Get out of my way!’
George: Because, because, as the leader, if I die, then all hope is lost. Who would lead? The clown? Huh? Instead of castigating me, you should all be thanking me. What kind of topsy-turvy world do we live in where heroes are cast as villains, brave men as cowards?
Girlfriend: But I saw you push the women and children out of the way in a mad panic. I saw you knock them down. And when you ran out, you left everyone behind.
George: Seemingly, seemingly, to the untrained eye. I can fully understand how you got that impression. What looked like pushing, what looked like knocking down, was a safety precaution. In a fire, you stay close to the ground. Am I right? Whoa! And when I ran out that door, I was not leaving anyone behind. Quite the contrary. I risked my life making sure that exit was clear. Any other questions?
Fireman: How do you live with yourself?
George: It’s not easy.

"The Banjo Lesson"
- Henry Ossawa Tanner, 1893
The picture above, is my favorite piece of artwork by any painter. It truly captures the bond between father/grandfather and son like no other; and though it portrays a family of color, the portrait itself and it’s message transcends race, ethnicity and background. Secondly, this is special to me due to the fact that my family owned a print of the painting, which hung above our fireplace in New Orleans, LA until August 29, 2005. Upon viewing it, it always reminds me of my father, his father before him, and the life lessons and words of wisdom that they have to offer through their years of experience. 
Ironically, the institution of higher learning that I attended (Hampton University) holds the original painting, in their museum of art… Being able to see the original brought to me a feeling of nostalgia, and it always puts a smile on my face. So, if you’re ever the the Hampton area, make sure you go and check it out, it’s a beautiful piece of work.
