Early Sunday Morning, September 2nd a movie came upon my television screen. The movie was "They Call Me Sirr" from 2000 about former National Football League player Sirr Parker who overcame impossible odds living in South Central Los Angeles to achieve a 3.9 high school grade point average and college football scholarship to Texas A & M University. Playing his high school football coach in the movie was Actor, Michael Clarke Duncan.
Michael Clarke Duncan passed away at the age of 54, September 3rd. Mr. Duncan who suffered a heart attack last month, was being treated at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in the Los Angeles, California area before succumbing to his illness. Three years prior, Mr. Duncan took a change in his lifestyle, becoming a strict vegetarian along with continuing to engage in robust physical activities to maintain a healthy body. His shocking death reminds us once again when God his ready for us to arrive in Heaven, No Man, Women or Medical Treatment can alter the final outcome.
Mr. Duncan will be remembered for his roles in various cinema works including as masterful fictional character John Coffey in The Green Mile, Armageddon, Breakfast of Champions, The Whole Nine Yards, Sin City, along with television work in The Apprentice, Two and a Half Men and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody just to name a few.
