Greatest Love of All

“I believe the children are our future / Teach them well and let them lead the way.” Whitney Houston sang these lines, but Dr. Doris Elizabeth Cross lived them. Through the Upward Bound program she led, Dr. Cross gave poor kids like myself a chance to experience college life and she made sure that we were prepared for higher learning. I was too young to understand equal opportunity and education; therefore, I am forever grateful that she was there to lead the way. May her soul rest in peace!
