I have wanted to be a journalist (and soccer maven) since I was a little girl.
I wanted to be as smart as Christiane Amanpour, as sassy and curious as Ann Curry and (when I was a little older) as perspicacious as Nick Clooney.
A girl can still dream. Those people are my anchors and journalism mentors.
I have wanted to do a post about Nick Clooney for a long time.
Yes, he is the father of some famous actor we may have seen on the big and small screens and we’ve drank his Tequila like there was no tomorrow ( I sure did) and still, didn’t have the worst hangover.
Nicholas Clooney (the same given name as my father) is so fascinating. He was a well-known anchorman and television host for so many years.
He was a true leader in his field. But, he displays the definition of what it means to be a true leader with his actions.
He protested for the Sudanese with pride, even though he got arrested along with his son.
That shows you the man he is. Someone not afraid to fight the good fight. This is something that his son will probably pass down to his children.
In my eyes, this is the most beautiful legacy a man could leave to his descendants.
While watching David Letterman’s show last night on Netflix, I was so happy and touched by the generosity of all the Clooneys for sponsoring a very courageous Yazidi man named Hazim Avdal (and he is a good driver).
There is goodness around us. We just need to open our eyes and our hearts.
If you have the chance to watch it on Netflix, please do!
Mr. Clooney. Thank you for being one of my inspirations and in a way, one of my mentors.
I salute you.
Good Night and Good Luck!
