I was asked if I could write a blog in celebration of Clay Aiken’s second Father’s Day. Now, this is a tough one for me. Last year, I took the chicken way out and threw together a blend to commemorate Clay’s very special first Father’s Day ever and left the writing to musicfan.
But this year, well this year is a little different. Clay’s a great dad who is doing an incredible job of keeping Parker out of the limelight. I admire that more than I can say (although I will admit to wanting to see just one tiny little picture of an almost 2 year old mini Clay).
As I was perusing that big old World Wide Web looking for inspiration, I ran across this quote:
He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland
I fell instantly in love with that quote and put together a quick slide show of Clay living his life. Not the singing, concerts, TV appearances and interviews, but Clay’s work on behalf of children around the world. His quiet advocacy with the goal of ensuring that all children have the same opportunities; to be included and to be able to grow up and reach their full potential .
Here it is, hope you enjoy – oh, and make sure your sound is on for the last slide
