He kept on believing, and now Jeremiah Dickerson, from James B. Dudley High School, is headed to Paine College, in Augusta, Georgia to attend to his college education, and to play college basketball…
You hear it many times, and sometimes it comes at you over and over again, “Don’t Stop Believing”, and Jeremiah Dickerson didn’t….He held on to that feeling, and felt like for sure that he would be playing college basketball somewhere, and now he is…
“Don’t Stop Believing, Hold on to that Feeling”, and that is what Jeremiah Dickerson did, and today here on April 3, 2020, we congratulate Jeremiah on his reaching his personal “Mountaintop”….
Jeremiah Dickerson:100% COMMITTED to Paine College
This sort of reminds me of something else I was reading just this morning, about another man who reached the “Mountaintop”….
It was on this night, April 3, back in 1968, and that was when Dr. Martin Luther King gave his final speech. “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”….
In it, he hints that he believed he might not live long.
He said, “We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to mountaintop. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you…[But] I’m happy tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”
The next day he was assassinated.
And now here we are on Friday April 3, 2020, and Jeremiah Dickerson has reached his “Mountaintop”…..
(And Jeremiah Dickerson is moving on, he is pressing forward.)
