On this last day of teacher appreciation week, I wish to pay tribute to my late mom, who was a teacher, Miss Calhoun and Ms. Gibson.

As a young immigrant, Ms. Calhoun and Ms. Gibson were my elementary teachers who helped me learn to read, write, and speak English and to speak up and fly like an Eagle.

In the '90s, I moved to City Island - A Slice of NYC Paradise to build News 12 The Bronx. I then hired and trained my new staff. Following a successful launch, I was recruited by The Associated Press to serve as its founding television news, NY Bureau Chief.

Kennedy testified at the time that “I have short-term memory loss, and I have longer-term memory loss that affects me.”
