This is by far one of my most intimate projects to date primarily because it is so personal. An enormous amount of time and energy was spent putting this together. I must admit that I became discourage on many accounts due to the countless road blocks I encountered along the journey. Throughout it all I remained persistent because I knew what my end goal was, and that was to tell my uncle's story. I understand that it is a lengthy video, but I strongly encourage you all to watch it in it's entirety!!! As we transition into this new year I will give the world more of me, I thank God for putting me in the position to do so. Follow me on this Journey people I promise it will be worth it.
For all who do not know the first quarter of 2014 was by far a really rough start for me. On January 1, 2014 my uncle Roger Waddell Pickett Jr. was shot and killed by retired Jersey City police officer James D. Corley, following an alleged dispute between the two men at Moore's Lounge aka Bill and Ruth's in Jersey City, New Jersey. Corley was originally charge with attempted murder and a weapons offense related to a handgun. Given the death of my uncle the charges were later upgraded to murder.
An intimate conversation with Lorenzo P. "My uncle was a soldier" PT2
