Inspiration From The 2012 BET Honors

It's been a long month, but the awaited 2012 BET Honors has finally aired for the first time. While watching I couldn't help but notice all of the legends that showed up to the awards just to be there or honor someone else.

Patti LaBelle was one of them. She performed in the tribute to Mariah Carey and it was amazing. Stevie Wonder was also shown love by Aretha Franklin. Plus he got on stage and sang one of his classic hits. Legendary filmmaker Spike Lee was also there to receive an award. Plus several Tuskegee Airmen showed up. However, it wasn't just the fact that they were there that made the night special. It was the words of wisdom that they gave us. Some quotes and paraphrased quotes are below.

"Do not kill your children's dreams"-- Spike Lee

"I did not know it was possible for me to feel better than I look...and I look good."-- Coach Beverly Kearny

(Paraphrased) "Back then I didn't know what we were doing was historical but now I know that it is."-- The Tuskegee Airmen

The most special moment for me was not what Mariah Carey said. It was the fact that her husband announced the award and gave it to her.
