  • BUT BECAUSE OF THE OVERSIGHT
  • 00:05:07.130 --> 00:05:09.020
  • THAT'S GOING INTO THIS
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:10.150
  • FROM WASHINGTON,
  • 00:05:10.150 --> 00:05:12.010
  • FROM THE WHITE HOUSE,
  • 00:05:12.010 --> 00:05:13.130
  • PROPER OVERSIGHT THEY'RE
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:14.210
  • GOING TO HAVE LESS RISK
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:16.240
  • BECAUSE THEY'RE GOING TO KNOW
  • 00:05:16.240 --> 00:05:18.100
  • THAT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:19.240
  • AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY DO
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:20.280
  • WHAT THEY GO IN THERE TO DO
  • 00:05:20.280 --> 00:05:22.060
  • AND HELP THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:22.060 --> 00:05:23.170
  • YOU SEE THIS AS CHANGING
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:24.250
  • THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.080
  • AND THEN SUDDENLY FINDING
  • 00:05:26.080 --> 00:05:27.200
  • THEY MAY NOT HAVE A FATHER
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:29.040
  • BUT THEY'VE GOT A MENTOR
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:30.150
  • REPRESENTING A FATHER'S HEART
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:31.250
  • WHICH YOU'RE DOING ALSO,
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:33.080
  • DR. CARSON DOES,
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:34.200
  • BUT THEY'RE GOING TO THEN SEE
  • 00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:36.010
  • THAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY
  • 00:05:36.010 --> 00:05:37.110
  • FIND OPPORTUNITY,
  • 00:05:37.110 --> 00:05:38.170
  • CREATE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:39.260
  • AND MAYBE CREATE
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:41.040
  • THEIR OWN WAY OUT
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:42.110
  • OF LET'S SAY THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:43.150
  • THEY'VE BEEN EXPERIENCING
  • 00:05:43.150 --> 00:05:44.200
  • ALL THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:45.230
  • Scott: ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:47.000
  • THAT'S THE HEART.
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:48.100
  • THE SPIRIT OF THIS
  • 00:05:48.100 --> 00:05:49.170
  • IS TO BRINGING REVITALIZATION
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:50.260
  • AND REAL TRANSFORMATION
  • 00:05:50.260 --> 00:05:52.070
  • TO DISTRESSED COMMUNITIES
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.140
  • IN AMERICA.
  • 00:05:53.140 --> 00:05:54.220
  • AND OFTENTIMES THE PRESIDENT,
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:55.280
  • DR. CARSON AND OTHERS TALK
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.050
  • ABOUT THE FORGOTTEN PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:58.100
  • THOSE THAT LIVE
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:05:59.160
  • IN THE DISTRESSED UNDERSERVED
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:02.040
  • COMMUNITIES OF AMERICA
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:03.120
  • WHERE THERE HASN'T BEEN
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:04.210
  • A LOT OF INVESTMENT
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:06.000
  • IN DECADES.
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:07.100
  • AND EVEN WITH
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:08.160
  • THE SYSTEMIC PROBLEM WE HAVE
  • 00:06:08.160 --> 00:06:09.220
  • IN OUR GOVERNMENT SYSTEM THAT
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:11.130
  • DOESN'T INCENTIVIZE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:13.110
  • TO MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:14.160
  • IT DOESN'T INCENTIVIZE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:15.190
  • TO WORK HARD AND GET RAISES;
  • 00:06:15.190 --> 00:06:17.280
  • IN PARTICULAR,
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:19.000
  • IF YOU'RE ON
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:20.050
  • GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE BECAUSE
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:21.100
  • THEN YOUR RENT GOES UP AND
  • 00:06:21.100 --> 00:06:22.150
  • THEN THERE'S NO MOTIVATION.
  • 00:06:22.150 --> 00:06:23.200
  • THERE'S NO MOTIVATION
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:24.260
  • TO HAVE A MOTHER AND A FATHER
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:25.290
  • IN THE HOUSE BECAUSE NOW
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:27.020
  • YOU DON'T RECEIVE
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.060
  • THE SAME SUBSIDY.
  • 00:06:28.060 --> 00:06:29.070
  • SO THAT SYSTEMIC PROBLEM
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.080
  • HAS TO BE BROKEN.
  • 00:06:30.080 --> 00:06:31.080
  • James: IT DOES.
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:32.090
  • IT'S KEEPING THOSE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:32.090 --> 00:06:33.130
  • IN BONDAGE.
  • 00:06:33.130 --> 00:06:34.170
  • IT IS A WORSE FORM
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:35.210
  • TO FIND ONESELF IN
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:36.220
  • THAN SLAVERY ITSELF.
  • 00:06:36.220 --> 00:06:37.240
  • THEY'RE IN TOTAL BONDAGE,
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:39.080
  • SUBJECT TO A HIGHER POWER THAT
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:40.120
  • NEVER LETS THEM GO ANYWHERE
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:41.190
  • AND THEY'VE NEVER
  • 00:06:41.190 --> 00:06:43.030
  • BECOME PRODUCTIVE.
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:44.130
  • I WANT YOU TO TELL US
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.230
  • A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY.
  • 00:06:45.230 --> 00:06:47.000
  • YOU PLAYED FOR SEVERAL
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:48.060
  • FOOTBALL TEAMS --
  • 00:06:48.060 --> 00:06:49.130
  • NAME SOME OF THE N.F.L. TEAMS
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:50.260
  • YOU PLAYED FOR.
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:52.020
  • Scott: SO I GOT DRAFTED
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:53.120
  • BY THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS.
  • 00:06:53.120 --> 00:06:54.170
  • James: OH NO!
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.230
  • Scott: I COULD HAVE
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:56.260
  • GOT DRAFTED BY THE COWBOYS
  • 00:06:56.260 --> 00:06:57.290
  • BUT WE'VE ALREADY HAD
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:59.010
  • THAT CONVERSATION.
  • 00:06:59.010 --> 00:07:00.060
  • WE TALKED ABOUT IT
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:01.110
  • BUT WE'RE GOOD.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:02.160
  • James: YOU TOLD JERRY
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:03.170
  • YOU WOULDN'T EVEN HAVE
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:04.180
  • A PLANE TICKET,
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:05.190
  • Scott: I'M RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:07.230
  • SO I GOT DRAFTED
  • 00:07:07.230 --> 00:07:08.260
  • BY THE REDSKINS
  • 00:07:08.260 --> 00:07:09.280
  • AND ALSO PLAYED
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.010
  • FOR THE SAN DIEGO CHARGERS
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:12.030
  • AND THE DENVER BRONCOS
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:13.060
  • SO GOD GAVE ME NINE YEARS
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:15.150
  • IN THE N.F.L.
  • 00:07:15.150 --> 00:07:16.170
  • I WAS THE SEVENTH ROUND
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:17.210
  • DRAFT PICK.
  • 00:07:17.210 --> 00:07:18.210
  • I WASN'T EXPECTED
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:19.210
  • TO GET DRAFTED,
  • 00:07:19.210 --> 00:07:20.260
  • WASN'T EXPECTED TO MAKE IT,
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.050
  • AND PARTICULARLY, THAT LONG.
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:24.130
  • BUT I HAVE A STORY OF COMING
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:26.170
  • FROM A BROKEN HOME.
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:28.280
  • I LOVE MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER
  • 00:07:28.280 --> 00:07:30.250
  • BUT THEIR MARRIAGE WAS BROKEN.
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:33.070
  • THERE WAS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:36.070
  • THERE WAS ALCOHOLISM.
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:37.140
  • THEY WERE YOUNG TEENAGERS
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:39.100
  • THAT GOT MARRIED
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.120
  • AND THEY STAYED MARRIED
  • 00:07:40.120 --> 00:07:41.180
  • FOR TEN YEARS;
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:42.230
  • UNFORTUNATELY
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:43.260
  • THEY WERE DIVORCED.
  • 00:07:43.260 --> 00:07:45.030
  • SO I SAW MY FAMILY UNIT
  • 00:07:45.030 --> 00:07:46.080
  • BROKEN RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES.
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:48.090
  • BUT IT WAS IN THAT MOMENT
  • 00:07:48.090 --> 00:07:49.130
  • WHEN I SAW MY MOTHER
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:50.160
  • AND FATHER SEPARATE
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:51.160
  • THAT GOD PUT A DREAM
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:52.200
  • AND A VISION IN MY HEART.
  • 00:07:52.200 --> 00:07:54.110
  • I TOLD MY MOTHER.
  • 00:07:54.110 --> 00:07:55.130
  • I SAID, "ONE DAY
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:56.160
  • I'M GOING TO PLAY IN THE
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:07:57.190
  • NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
  • 00:07:57.190 --> 00:07:58.230
  • AND I'M GOING
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:07:59.270
  • TO TAKE CARE OF YOU."
  • 00:07:59.270 --> 00:08:01.060
  • SHE SAID, "YOU CAN DO IT."
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:02.120
  • SHE SAID, "TRUST GOD."
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:03.180
  • SO MY MOTHER INSTILLED IN ME
  • 00:08:03.190 --> 00:08:06.190
  • FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:08.130
  • I ACCEPTED CHRIST
  • 00:08:08.130 --> 00:08:09.190
  • AT 13 YEARS OLD
  • 00:08:09.190 --> 00:08:10.250
  • AT MOUNT PLEASANT
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:11.280
  • MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:13.090
  • AND WAS BAPTIZED
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.200
  • AND HAVE NEVER LOOKED BACK.
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:16.020
  • GOD BROUGHT MEN IN MY LIFE
  • 00:08:16.020 --> 00:08:18.000
  • ALONG THE WAY
  • 00:08:18.000 --> 00:08:20.080
  • THAT DISCIPLED ME
  • 00:08:20.080 --> 00:08:21.170
  • AND THAT MENTORED ME
  • 00:08:21.170 --> 00:08:22.290
  • AND THAT CHALLENGED ME
  • 00:08:22.290 --> 00:08:24.100
  • AT THE RIGHT TIMES
  • 00:08:24.100 --> 00:08:25.190
  • IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE,
  • 00:08:25.190 --> 00:08:27.080
  • AND IN THE PROS.
  • 00:08:27.080 --> 00:08:28.120
  • AND THEN WITH DR. JACK GRAHAM
  • 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:30.000
  • BEING MY PASTOR NOW,
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:31.060
  • AND DAVID SOTO
  • 00:08:31.060 --> 00:08:32.090
  • FROM SAN DIEGO,
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:34.030
  • AND PASTOR BRETT FULLER;
  • 00:08:34.030 --> 00:08:35.120
  • SO THESE MEN
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:36.180
  • HELPED DISCIPLE ME;
  • 00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:37.290
  • AND DARRELL GREEN
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:39.020
  • AND TIM JOHNSON
  • 00:08:39.020 --> 00:08:40.070
  • AND ON AND ON --
  • 00:08:40.070 --> 00:08:41.120
  • AENEAS WILLIAMS.
  • 00:08:41.120 --> 00:08:42.150
  • SO WITH THAT
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:44.010
  • GOD HAS BEEN PREPARING ME.
  • 00:08:44.010 --> 00:08:46.090
  • AND MY FATHER TAUGHT ME
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:47.210
  • TO HAVE GREAT WORK ETHIC,
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:50.060
  • TO HAVE A SENSE OF PRIDE
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:52.130
  • IN WORKING HARD TO ACHIEVE
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:54.080
  • AND TO EARN WHAT YOU WANT.
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:56.290
  • SO MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME FAITH,
  • 00:08:56.290 --> 00:08:58.050
  • MY FATHER TAUGHT ME
  • 00:08:58.050 --> 00:08:59.120
  • WORK ETHIC, AND THEN GOD
  • 00:08:59.120 --> 00:09:00.160
  • PUT THE MEN IN MY LIFE
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:01.210
  • TO TEACH ME SPIRITUALLY
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:03.080
  • AND GIVE ME
  • 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:04.180
  • A STRONG FOUNDATION.
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:07.080
  • THE GREATEST PART OF THAT
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:09.100
  • IS THAT I GOT TO
  • 00:09:09.100 --> 00:09:10.150
  • PORTRAY THOSE SKILLS
  • 00:09:10.150 --> 00:09:11.200
  • AT SPRING CREEK BARBECUE
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:14.120
  • IN RICHARDSON, TEXAS.
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:15.200
  • I WAS A DISHWASHER.
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:16.290
  • WITH ALL THE FAITH
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:18.180
  • THAT GOD GAVE ME,
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:19.210
  • I STAYED IN THAT DISH ROOM
  • 00:09:19.210 --> 00:09:20.260
  • WITH MY FRIENDS RIDICULING ME,
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:23.070
  • LAUGHING AT ME,
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:24.130
  • LOOKING IN THE WINDOW SAYING,
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:25.170
  • "HEY! WE'RE GOING OUT.
  • 00:09:25.170 --> 00:09:26.220
  • YOU'RE WASHING DISHES."
  • 00:09:26.220 --> 00:09:28.060
  • BUT IN MY HEART OF HEARTS
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:29.160
  • I KNOW GOD WAS SAYING,
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:30.180
  • "DON'T DESPISE THE SMALL THING
  • 00:09:30.180 --> 00:09:32.270
  • THE LITTLE THINGS I HAVE YOU."
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:35.090
  • SO WHEN I WENT TO
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:36.230
  • THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:39.180
  • I WASN'T HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:41.110
  • AS A RECRUIT
  • 00:09:41.110 --> 00:09:42.250
  • GOING TO THE N.F.L.
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.270
  • BUT ILLINOIS HAD A STADIUM
  • 00:09:44.270 --> 00:09:47.020
  • CALLED MEMORIAL STADIUM,
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:49.030
  • AND BY THAT TIME
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:50.140
  • I'M 23 YEARS OLD
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:52.190
  • AND GOD HAD BEEN SENDING
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:54.000
  • THESE MEN TO DISCIPLE ME.
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:55.110
  • I HAD BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:09:55.110 --> 00:09:56.180
  • A LOT OF HARDSHIP AS FAR
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:57.250
  • AS MY CAREER AT ILLINOIS,
  • 00:09:57.250 --> 00:09:59.100
  • NOT BEING ABLE TO GET
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:00.200
  • ON THE FIELD FOR THREE YEARS.
  • 00:10:00.200 --> 00:10:02.030
  • I WAS A FULL TIME STARTER.
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:03.040
  • THEN STARTED FINALLY
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:04.260
  • MY SENIOR YEAR
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:06.010
  • AT A POSITION I NEVER PLAYED.
  • 00:10:06.010 --> 00:10:07.060
  • ALL MY LIFE
  • 00:10:08.120 --> 00:10:09.160
  • AND NOW I'M A CORNER
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:10.210
  • MY SENIOR YEAR.
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:11.260
  • SO HERE COMES
  • 00:10:11.260 --> 00:10:13.010
  • THE N.F.L. COMBINE.
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.050
  • THEY INVITE 300 PLAYERS
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:16.170
  • TO THE COMBINE.
  • 00:10:16.170 --> 00:10:17.210
  • I WAS A STARTER ON THE DEFENSE
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:18.270
  • BUT I DIDN'T GET INVITED.
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:20.010
  • I'M LIKE, I KNOW
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:21.060
  • I'M SUPPOSED TO GET INVITED.
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:22.150
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:10:22.150 --> 00:10:23.220
  • AND ALL OF MY FRIENDS STARTED
  • 00:10:23.220 --> 00:10:24.240
  • GETTING THE INVITATIONS
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:25.240
  • IN THE MAILBOXES.
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:26.240
  • AND I'M LOOKING
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:27.250
  • IN THE MAILBOX FOR MINE,
  • 00:10:27.250 --> 00:10:28.260
  • I NEVER GET IT!
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:30.000
  • YOU KNOW SOMETIMES
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:31.010
  • WE LOOK FOR THINGS IN LIFE
  • 00:10:31.010 --> 00:10:32.050
  • AND THEY NEVER SHOW UP.
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.090
  • AND THAT'S WHY OUR FAITH
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:34.130
  • IN CHRIST HAS TO KICK IN
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:35.160
  • BECAUSE WE WALK BY FAITH
  • 00:10:35.160 --> 00:10:36.190
  • AND NOT BY SIGHT.
  • 00:10:36.190 --> 00:10:37.220
  • I DIDN'T SEE AN INVITATION
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:38.250
  • BUT I SAW GOD AND I WENT
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:40.010
  • OVER TO THEIR STADIUM.
  • 00:10:40.010 --> 00:10:41.050
  • I STARTED RUNNING STADIUM
  • 00:10:41.050 --> 00:10:42.060
  • STEPS BY MYSELF IN THE COLD
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:43.110
  • IN CHAMPAGNE, ILLINOIS
  • 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:44.190
  • BECAUSE I KNEW THE VISION
  • 00:10:44.190 --> 00:10:46.040
  • THAT GOD GAVE ME
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:47.140
  • THAT HE WOULD REVEAL IT TO ME
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:48.220
  • AND THAT IT WOULD COME TO PASS
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:50.040
  • IF I TRUSTED HIM.
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:51.100
  • WELL, LONG STORY SHORT
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:52.190
  • 22 TEAMS CAME TO MY SCHOOL
  • 00:10:52.190 --> 00:10:55.150
  • FOR A PRO DAY
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:57.070
  • AND THEY ALLOWED US
  • 00:10:57.070 --> 00:10:58.120
  • TO RUN THE 40-YARD DASH.
  • 00:10:58.120 --> 00:11:00.030
  • WHEN I STOOD UP TO THE LINES
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:01.090
  • THEY DIDN'T EVEN KNOW MY NAME.
  • 00:11:01.180 --> 00:11:04.180
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:05.260
  • OBSCURE BEFORE?
  • 00:11:05.260 --> 00:11:06.290
  • INVISIBLE?
  • 00:11:06.290 --> 00:11:08.150
  • I STEPPED UP TO THAT LINE
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:09.230
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:11:09.230 --> 00:11:10.290
  • "I DON'T SEE 22 MEN,
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:12.090
  • I SEE 22 STOP WATCHES."
  • 00:11:12.090 --> 00:11:14.190
  • AND ALL OF THESE VISIONS
  • 00:11:14.190 --> 00:11:15.260
  • FROM MY CHILDHOOD
  • 00:11:15.260 --> 00:11:17.000
  • AND WORKING HARD
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:18.000
  • AND THE VICTORIES
  • 00:11:18.000 --> 00:11:19.000
  • AND THE DEFEAT,
  • 00:11:19.000 --> 00:11:20.020
  • AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:11:20.020 --> 00:11:21.040
  • AT THAT TIME ON THAT LINE
  • 00:11:21.040 --> 00:11:22.060
  • I LOOKED DOWN THERE
  • 00:11:22.060 --> 00:11:23.080
  • AND I SAID, "I'M GOING TO GET
  • 00:11:23.080 --> 00:11:24.100
  • DOWN THERE AS FAST AS I CAN,
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:25.120
  • FROM HERE TO THERE
  • 00:11:25.120 --> 00:11:26.140
  • AS FAST AS I CAN."
  • 00:11:26.140 --> 00:11:27.160
  • I TOOK OFF.
  • 00:11:27.160 --> 00:11:28.180
  • MAN, I'M RUNNING.
  • 00:11:28.180 --> 00:11:29.200
  • AND I CROSSED THE FINISH LINE
  • 00:11:29.200 --> 00:11:30.230
  • AND ALL I HEAR THEM SAYING
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:31.250
  • IS, "WHOO!"
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:33.070
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:33.070 --> 00:11:34.150
  • THEY LOOKED AT THEIR WATCH
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:35.220
  • AND THEY WERE LIKE 4.22,
  • 00:11:35.220 --> 00:11:37.220
  • 4.24
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:39.110
  • AND THEY WERE LIKE, "SON,
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:40.170
  • WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?"
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:42.090
  • I SAID,
  • 00:11:42.090 --> 00:11:43.110
  • "MAN, I LOOKED IN MY MAILBOX,
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:44.160
  • BUT Y'ALL NEVER
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:45.230
  • SENT MY INVITATION!"
  • 00:11:45.230 --> 00:11:47.110
  • WELL, I WAS 23.
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:49.240
  • WHEN I WAS STANDING
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:50.290
  • ON THE THRESHOLD
  • 00:11:50.290 --> 00:11:52.000
  • OF THAT FRONT DOOR
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:53.000
  • OF MY MOTHER THAT DAY
  • 00:11:53.000 --> 00:11:54.010
  • I HEARD MY FATHER SEPARATE,
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:55.060
  • I WAS TEN YEARS OLD
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:11:56.090
  • AND I'M REMINDED,
  • 00:11:56.090 --> 00:11:57.140
  • THAT WAS 13 YEARS
  • 00:11:57.140 --> 00:11:58.180
  • OF TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:11:59.270
  • OF BELIEVING HIM,
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:01.130
  • OF SAYING "YES"
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:02.200
  • WHEN EVERYBODY SAID "NO"
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:03.270
  • -- 13 YEARS OF PREPARATION
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:06.180
  • FOR FOUR SECONDS.
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:08.070
  • CHANGED MY LIFE.
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:09.220
  • AND MY LIFE
  • 00:12:09.220 --> 00:12:11.020
  • HAS NEVER BEEN THE SAME.
  • 00:12:11.020 --> 00:12:12.150
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, "OH
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:14.060
  • IT WAS JUST A 40-YARD DASH."
  • 00:12:14.060 --> 00:12:15.110
  • NO, THAT WAS TRANSFORMATIONAL
  • 00:12:15.110 --> 00:12:16.160
  • IN MY LIFE BECAUSE GOD
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:18.010
  • THAT PUT THAT VISION IN ME
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:20.140
  • HE DID IT
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:21.200
  • ON THAT DAY 13 YEARS LATER.
  • 00:12:21.200 --> 00:12:23.010
  • SO I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE,
  • 00:12:23.010 --> 00:12:24.020
  • HOLD ON TO THE VISION
  • 00:12:24.020 --> 00:12:25.220
  • AND TO THE WORD
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:26.280
  • AND TO THE DREAMS
  • 00:12:26.280 --> 00:12:28.090
  • GOD GIVES YOU.
  • 00:12:28.090 --> 00:12:29.180
  • AND EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:30.210
  • THE WORLD MAY SAY NO,
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:31.230
  • THE DEVIL MAY SAY NO,
  • 00:12:31.230 --> 00:12:32.290
  • YOUR FLESH MAY SAY NO,
  • 00:12:32.290 --> 00:12:34.040
  • James: I WANT US
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:36.200
  • TO STAND AGAINST EVERYTHING
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:37.250
  • THAT EVER KILLED THE VISION
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:39.050
  • OF EVERY YOUNG MAN
  • 00:12:39.050 --> 00:12:40.120
  • LIKE ME AND LIKE YOU
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:41.170
  • WHO DIDN'T HAVE A DAD
  • 00:12:41.170 --> 00:12:42.220
  • THE VISION IN DR. BEN CARSON
  • 00:12:43.270 --> 00:12:45.020
  • BECAUSE HE DIDN'T
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:46.090
  • HAVE A FATHER.
  • 00:12:46.090 --> 00:12:47.140
  • I WANT TO PRAY FOR ALL OF YOU
  • 00:12:47.140 --> 00:12:49.090
  • THAT FELT LIKE, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:12:49.090 --> 00:12:50.140
  • IF I HAVE A DREAM.
  • 00:12:50.140 --> 00:12:51.220
  • IT BREAKS MY HEART TO THINK
  • 00:12:51.220 --> 00:12:52.280
  • THAT MIGHT BE THE CASE
  • 00:12:52.280 --> 00:12:54.060
  • WITH ANY OF YOU OR ANYONE
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:55.110
  • YOU KNOW.
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:56.190
  • MAYBE YOU KNOW SOMEONE
  • 00:12:56.190 --> 00:12:57.250
  • THAT FEELS LIKE
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.260
  • THEY DON'T HAVE A DREAM
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:00.030
  • OR YOU WISH THEY DID.
  • 00:13:00.030 --> 00:13:01.070
  • AND MAYBE YOU COULD GET THEM
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:02.140
  • TO WATCH THIS ON LINE
  • 00:13:02.140 --> 00:13:03.210
  • WHERE I'M TALKING TO SCOTT
  • 00:13:03.210 --> 00:13:04.240
  • BECAUSE I WANT EVERYBODY
  • 00:13:04.240 --> 00:13:05.280
  • TO KNOW
  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:07.040
  • THAT GOD HAS A DREAM FOR YOU.
  • 00:13:07.040 --> 00:13:09.020
  • FATHER, I PRAY FOR EVERYONE
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:10.100
  • THAT FEELS LIKE
  • 00:13:10.100 --> 00:13:11.140
  • I DON'T EVEN HAVE A DREAM.
  • 00:13:11.140 --> 00:13:12.180
  • LORD, I WANT YOU TO SHOW THEM
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:13.230
  • YOUR DREAM FOR THEM.
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:15.290
  • BECAUSE I KNOW SCOTT TURNER
  • 00:13:15.290 --> 00:13:17.150
  • HAS COME TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:19.020
  • YOUR DREAM FOR ALL THE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:20.240
  • HE'S GOING TO SEEK TO HELP
  • 00:13:20.240 --> 00:13:22.190
  • AND THAT OTHERS WHO ARE GIFTED
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:23.250
  • WILL SEEK TO HELP.
  • 00:13:23.250 --> 00:13:24.290
  • AND THEN LORD FOR THOSE
  • 00:13:24.290 --> 00:13:26.010
  • WHO HAVE A DREAM BUT THEY'VE
  • 00:13:26.010 --> 00:13:27.050
  • NEVER SEEN IT FULFILLED,
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:28.100
  • I WANT YOU TO GIVE THEM HOPE
  • 00:13:28.100 --> 00:13:29.180
  • THAT IT WILL BE FULFILLED;
  • 00:13:29.180 --> 00:13:31.000
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:32.080
  • I WANT TO SAY

  • YOU PRAY FOR SCOTT TURNER.
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:37.100
  • THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:13:37.100 --> 00:13:38.140
  • I HEARD HIM SPEAK
  • 00:13:38.140 --> 00:13:39.160
  • HE WAS RUNNING
  • 00:13:39.160 --> 00:13:40.190
  • TO BE A REPRESENTATIVE
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:41.240
  • HERE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS.
  • 00:13:41.240 --> 00:13:43.000
  • I KNEW I WAS LISTENING
  • 00:13:43.000 --> 00:13:44.050
  • TO AN ATHLETE,
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.130
  • A FORMER N.F.L. PLAYER
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:47.090
  • WHO HAD GOD ALL OVER HIM.
  • 00:13:47.090 --> 00:13:49.170
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I'VE EVER
  • 00:13:49.170 --> 00:13:50.190
  • SEEN ANY MORE ZEAL OR PASSION
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.220
  • BUT WHAT'S BEST FOR THE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:54.050
  • IN OUR STATE.
  • 00:13:54.050 --> 00:13:55.120
  • THEN WHEN I SAW HIM
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:56.170
  • IN WASHINGTON D.C.
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:57.210
  • AND KNEW THAT HE WAS ACTUALLY
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:13:59.050
  • WORKING WITH DR. BEN CARSON
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:00.240
  • THAT I LOVE AND PRAYED WITH

  • FOR SO LONG FOR SO MANY YEARS;
  • 00:14:02.260 --> 00:14:04.070
  • HE SPOKE AT
  • 00:14:04.070 --> 00:14:05.170
  • MY 50TH ANNIVERSARY,

  • ALL THE SPEAKERS WERE.
  • 00:14:10.010 --> 00:14:11.010
  • BEN'S BEEN A BLESSING.

  • TO IMPLEMENT A VISION
  • 00:14:17.270 --> 00:14:19.010
  • THAT GOD GAVE PEOPLE
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:20.090
  • AROUND THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:14:20.090 --> 00:14:21.160
  • WHO LOVED JESUS
  • 00:14:21.160 --> 00:14:22.210
  • WITH ALL THEIR HEART,
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:23.240
  • AND THE PRESIDENT CAUGHT IT
  • 00:14:23.240 --> 00:14:25.150
  • AND LAUNCHED IT
  • 00:14:25.150 --> 00:14:26.250
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO TALK

  • THESE URBAN COMMUNITIES
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:37.170
  • AND INNER CITY AREAS
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:38.190
  • WHERE THAT DREAM
  • 00:14:38.190 --> 00:14:39.210
  • NEEDS TO COME ALIVE
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:40.210
  • AND PEOPLE NEED
  • 00:14:40.210 --> 00:14:41.230
  • TO SEE OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:14:41.230 --> 00:14:42.290
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.010
  • IS GOING TO HAPPEN
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:45.020
  • IN THESE AREAS
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.040
  • WHERE YOU ALL GO WITH
  • 00:14:46.040 --> 00:14:47.070
  • THIS REVITALIZATION EFFORT?
  • 00:14:47.070 --> 00:14:49.170
  • THAT GOD HAS PREPARED ME
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:51.270
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:53.070
  • BECAUSE I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE,
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:54.250
  • I'VE BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:56.040
  • BUT I'VE ALSO SEEN VICTORY.
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:14:59.280
  • I'VE BEEN VERY BLESSED
  • 00:14:59.280 --> 00:15:01.150
  • AND GOD HAS GIVEN ME
  • 00:15:01.150 --> 00:15:02.210
  • A TREMENDOUS PLATFORM.
  • 00:15:02.210 --> 00:15:04.050
  • AND HE'S GIVEN ME
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:05.120
  • A HEART FOR THE HURTING,
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:06.230
  • A HEART FOR THE LOST,
  • 00:15:06.230 --> 00:15:08.140
  • A HEART FOR THOSE
  • 00:15:08.140 --> 00:15:09.190
  • THAT MAY HAVE BEEN VICTORIOUS
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:11.020
  • BUT NOW ARE ON HARD TIMES.
  • 00:15:11.100 --> 00:15:14.100
  • IN ISAIAH IT TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:15:14.100 --> 00:15:15.220
  • BEING A REPAIRER OF THE BREACH
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:16.270
  • AND A RESTORER OF THE STREETS.
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:20.000
  • WHEN I WENT TO THE WHITE HOUSE
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:21.210
  • AND I GOT THIS OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:15:21.210 --> 00:15:23.070
  • AND ACCEPTED IT, SAID,
  • 00:15:23.070 --> 00:15:24.140
  • "IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE

  • 00:15:26.070 --> 00:15:27.150
  • IN THE WHITE HOUSE
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:28.220
  • AND I'M SO BLESSED
  • 00:15:28.220 --> 00:15:29.280
  • BUT I'M A STREET MAN.
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:31.000
  • I WANT TO GO TO THE PEOPLE

  • IT DOESN'T HAVE A PARTY.
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:26.210
  • REVITALIZATION
  • 00:16:26.210 --> 00:16:27.280

  • OF LIFE TODAY ,
  • 00:16:33.260 --> 00:16:35.010
  • IF THERE ARE ANY PEOPLE
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:36.060
  • ON THIS PLANET,
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:37.130
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:16:37.130 --> 00:16:38.200
  • TOO OFTEN OVERLOOKED,
  • 00:16:39.290 --> 00:16:41.110
  • JESUS SAID

  • THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH HIM,
  • 00:16:50.280 --> 00:16:52.070
  • AND YES, WHAT THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:16:52.070 --> 00:16:53.210
  • HAS INITIATED AND PUT HIS,
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:55.070
  • NOT ONLY APPROVAL ON
  • 00:16:55.070 --> 00:16:56.190
  • BUT SUPPORT BEHIND,
  • 00:16:56.190 --> 00:16:58.030
  • THAT WE WILL LITERALLY
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:16:59.160
  • SEE A MIRACLE TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:16:59.160 --> 00:17:01.080
  • WHEN THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE --
  • 00:17:01.080 --> 00:17:03.180
  • AND THIS IS WHAT'S SAD.
  • 00:17:03.180 --> 00:17:05.000
  • A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:05.000 --> 00:17:06.100
  • WHO CREATE GREAT WEALTH,
  • 00:17:06.100 --> 00:17:07.250
  • THEN THE GOVERNMENT EXTRACTS
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:09.160
  • FROM THAT WEALTH
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:10.260
  • CERTAIN TAXES.
  • 00:17:10.260 --> 00:17:12.040
  • ERRONEOUSLY,
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:13.150
  • THESE WEALTH CREATORS
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:14.180
  • WHO PAY THESE TAXES
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:15.210
  • LIKE MANY AMERICANS THINK,
  • 00:17:15.210 --> 00:17:17.170
  • WELL, I PAID TAXES,
  • 00:17:17.170 --> 00:17:18.200
  • THAT'S SUPPOSED
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:19.250
  • TO TAKE CARE OF THE POOR,
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:20.270
  • AND TAKE CARE OF THIS.
  • 00:17:20.270 --> 00:17:22.020
  • WITHOUT ANY PERSONAL OVERSIGHT
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.080
  • OR COMPASSION CONNECTION
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:24.110
  • YOU'RE JUST TAKING
  • 00:17:24.110 --> 00:17:25.170
  • THE PEOPLE'S MONEY
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:26.260
  • AND TARGETING IT AT SOMETHING
  • 00:17:26.260 --> 00:17:28.020
  • THAT IT SELDOM HITS
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:29.070
  • AND STICKS.
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:30.120
  • AND IF THERE IS
  • 00:17:30.120 --> 00:17:31.170
  • NO LOVE INVOLVED,
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:32.210
  • THERE IS NO CHANGE MADE.
  • 00:17:32.210 --> 00:17:33.260
  • IT ACTUALLY KEEPS PEOPLE
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:34.290
  • DEPRAVED AND DEFEATED,
  • 00:17:34.290 --> 00:17:36.020
  • AND WITH NO INCENTIVE,
  • 00:17:36.020 --> 00:17:37.070
  • AND THEY NEVER CHANGE.
  • 00:17:37.070 --> 00:17:38.120
  • THEY JUST STAY STUCK.
  • 00:17:38.120 --> 00:17:39.160
  • BUT PEOPLE IN POWER USE THEM
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:41.160
  • TO STAY IN POWER
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:42.210
  • WHERE THEY NEVER HELP THEM.
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:43.280
  • I WANT OUR VIEWERS TO PRAY
  • 00:17:43.280 --> 00:17:45.210
  • THAT THIS WILL BRING REAL LIFE
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:48.060
  • TO THE WEALTH CREATOR
  • 00:17:48.060 --> 00:17:50.000
  • WHO WILL SAY, OKAY, I'M NOT
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:51.200
  • JUST GOING TO HAND IT OVER
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:52.220
  • HERE TO UNCLE SAM
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:54.040
  • OR TO SOME PHARAOH OR CAESAR,
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:55.230
  • I'M GOING TO PERSONALLY
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:57.010
  • GET INVOLVED,
  • 00:17:57.010 --> 00:17:58.010
  • LET ME GIVE THEM MONEY,
  • 00:17:58.010 --> 00:17:59.030
  • BUT I'M GOING TO BE
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:00.060
  • RISK TAKING,
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:02.110
  • AND PUTTING MY LIFE IN
  • 00:18:02.110 --> 00:18:03.170
  • LET'S SAY THE GIFTING
  • 00:18:03.170 --> 00:18:04.260
  • GOD'S GIVEN ME
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:05.280
  • AND THE ABILITY, I'M GOING
  • 00:18:05.280 --> 00:18:07.050
  • TO INVEST IT RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:08.110
  • THIS IS CALLED REAL
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:10.240
  • ON-SITE COACHING FROM SOMEBODY
  • 00:18:10.240 --> 00:18:12.000
  • WHO KNOWS HOW TO WIN.
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:13.040
  • AND IT CAN TOTALLY
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:14.110
  • CHANGE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:15.190
  • Scott: YES, SIR.
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:16.270
  • AND I BELIEVE THAT IT WILL.
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:18.000
  • BECAUSE THERE IS
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:19.080
  • ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:20.160
  • AND THERE'S
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:21.230
  • COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.
  • 00:18:21.230 --> 00:18:22.290
  • THERE IS ECONOMIC IMPACT
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:25.070
  • AND THEN A SOCIAL IMPACT.
  • 00:18:25.100 --> 00:18:28.100
  • AND THERE'S NEW TOOLS
  • 00:18:28.100 --> 00:18:30.050
  • WITH OPPORTUNITY ZONES
  • 00:18:30.050 --> 00:18:31.100
  • WHICH WE'LL TALK ABOUT LATER.
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:32.150
  • James: THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:18:32.150 --> 00:18:33.200
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:18:33.200 --> 00:18:34.250
  • IN DETAIL.
  • 00:18:34.250 --> 00:18:36.000
  • SCOTT'S GOING TO GO OVER THIS
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:37.010
  • IN DETAIL IN THE NEXT PROGRAM.
  • 00:18:37.010 --> 00:18:38.020
  • SCOTT, SIMPLY BECAUSE
  • 00:18:38.020 --> 00:18:39.090
  • I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO HAVE
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:40.110
  • AS MUCH TIME AS OPRAH,
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.140
  • SO WE HAVE TO KIND OF
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:42.220
  • WRAP OURS UP IN A HALF HOUR,
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:43.250
  • AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT.
  • 00:18:43.250 --> 00:18:44.260
  • BUT DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:46.000
  • WHAT WE'RE DOING?
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:47.080
  • I KNOW YOU LOVE THIS.
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:48.140
  • WE'RE PUTTING, AND I USED
  • 00:18:48.140 --> 00:18:49.240
  • TO HOLD UP LITTLE SHOES,
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:51.050
  • I'D ALMOST TEAR UP BECAUSE
  • 00:18:51.050 --> 00:18:52.090
  • IT LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING
  • 00:18:52.090 --> 00:18:53.110
  • THAT YOU'D BE SAYING,
  • 00:18:53.110 --> 00:18:54.130
  • PUT A LITTLE SHOE
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:55.230
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO PUT SHOES
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.130
  • OF ALL SIZES
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:18:59.190
  • AND THESE DO PRETTY WELL
