History is a cyclic poem
written by time
upon the memories of man.
– Percy Bysshe Shelley
The Top 3
Florence Crittenden of Sacramento California, James D. Foster of Fort Mohave Arizona and Clifton & Marla Davis of Denver Colorado, each of you have contributed something special of yourselves and in the process have touched The Neighborhood’s heart. The audience has spoken. Your participation is golden and your storylines will continue unfolding.
Cash and prizes are wonderful gifts to win. And perhaps, before it is all said and done, a sponsor will come along or maybe a neighbor or philanthropist will see the work we are doing and hit the ‘Donation’ button (big smile). But the nine people who began this quest, knew there was no pot of gold, for no snake oil will ever be sold here. But from different parts of the world they came, nonetheless, drawn in to have their voices heard and wanting to be a part of something bigger then self.
The first Reality Show in a blog – ‘The Lives We Live’, offers no fabulous merchandize like the Price is Right, but Think Big – I often say- how many times do we receive and take the chance to be the first of anything. Living their lives out loud, that is what they are doing, takes guts and heart and a passion, that they may not have even understood. And whoever, you decide to follow all the way through, will not only have shared their story to a fascinated world, but will be the first winner of the first reality show in a blog: History’s Prize.You will still have it, even when that brand new washer wears out.
…I wanted to vote for everyone. – Rob Goldstein
Martina Right of Sacramento California and Kenderick Lil Ken Johnson of Baton Rouge Louisiana. One of you comprehends, that within this artists collaborative, we are controlled by our imagination and each time we take the stage, we deliver the type of performance to make them remember our name. The other, has found comfort and strength and peace here, but has much to learn about patience and plotting of storytelling – even an autobiographical one – and the grassroots effort of promoting oneself. With so many interesting lives to follow, viewers were torn by the emotion versus the nature of the game. But Kenderick Lil Ken Johnson, they chose you, which means Martina Right…. you are in the bottom two.
Celonacharles Okpere Iphy of Lagos Nigeria and Lance Stinson of Lumber City Georgia. Of all nine that started, you two not only have the biggest, but a fan base that loves you. A talented recording artists, who sings Country Never Goes Out of Style with the comfort of a Grand Ole Opry Veteran, but the flavor of a new generation. But his busy schedule, on the road entertaining his fans, has left The Neighborhood guessing, And the other, a young graduate, has found his passion in writing, and one day, he will be the star he longs to be now; Advice is only useful to those who receive it, “Breathe” and then write.” Two very talented people. The unfamiliar audience was undecided and left it up to your fanbase to drive home support. And no doubt yours, Lance Stinson, would prefer to see you on the road, for you… are in the bottom two.
Thanks to everybody for taking part in this awesome event. – BlogDogIt
