Brenda Wood’s response to the Coke ad haters was, in a word … BRILLIANT! Further, I learned something new about “America the Beautiful”. Very interesting! Watch Brenda Wood’s classy counterpoint:
As a side note, I met Brenda Wood back in the early 90s. She was the president of the Southern Society of Adventist Communicators of which I was a member. She is the ultimate professional and a true class act. Back in the day, she put me in touch with Xernona Clayton (former corporate executive at Turner Broadcasting and Founder, President and CEO of the Trumpet Awards) when I had aspirations of working for CNN. All thanks to Brenda, I had the privilege of meeting Xernona which led to attending an event for the highly esteemed NBA basketball coach, Lenny Wilkens. I also met Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. And, Brenda made this all possible. She was a hero to me back in the day and is an even bigger hero to me today! Thank you, Brenda … for showing us what it means to be a true American! May God bless you and yours always and forever. You make me proud to be an American!
