“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” – Colin Powell
Colin Powell, born April 5, 1937, wan an American statesman and a retired four-star general in the United States Army. During his military career, Powell also served as National Security Advisor (1987–1989), as Commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command (1989) and as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (1989–1993), holding the latter position during the Persian Gulf War. Powell was the first, and so far the only, Jamaican American to serve on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was the 65th United States Secretary of State, serving under U.S. President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005, the first black person to serve in that position.

Hi everyone, my name is Sam McDermott. For my capstone I am going to be showing various Robin Williams films throughout the month of March. I will also be talking about Bipolar Depression before the movie and will be staying afterwards if you have any questions about it. This is purely to raise awareness, so it doesn’t cost anything. Every movie will start at 3:15 and will be shown in Mr. K’s movie room.
