Let the Future Begin

WXYZ Detroit’s Chuck Stokes recalls:

“I remember it like yesterday.  Attorney Dennis W. Archer being sworn in as Detroit Mayor on January 3, 1994.  The slogan of his hard fought campaign against Attorney Sharon McPhail was “Let the Future Begin.”  Archer’s victory was the start of his eight years as the Motor City’s top elected municipal official.  He took the political baton from retiring Mayor Coleman A. Young and ran with gusto!”

Listen to his conversation with Dennis Archer shortly after Archer’s memoir was released.

by ELIZABETH

I always dreamed about being on The Oprah Winfrey Show.  I would visualize the experience in great detail, imagining the feeling of sitting in the big yellow chairs on her set, and pressing my fingers to the cool leather.

In June of 2002, I was sitting on the set of Harpo Studios in Chicago, pressing my trembling palms to the cool yellow leather of Oprah’s armchairs.

Because I was living my visualization as a guest on her show!
