RIP Don Cornelius

You never know what’s going on behind closed doors.  You can’t imagine the pain people are suffering unless you can walk in their shoes.  The news of Don Cornelius’s suicide is beyond shocking to the general public.  I wonder if his friends knew how dire things were in his life.  Now more than ever the world needs to pray for Peace, Love and Soul.  He taught the world how to get their groove on, unscramble words to make phrases and showed us all how to stay hip in the latest threads.  Regardless of race, creed or color, I imagine at some point in your life you’ve strutted your stuff down a Soul Train line.  If you haven’t, today is the day to do it.  Like Don would say:

And You Can Bet Your Last Money, It’s Gonna Be A Stone Gas, Honey!

For more about the life and legacy of Don Cornelius, VH-1 did a wonderful documentary on Soul Train.  Jump on board and take the ride.
