King Richard the movie was so inspiring and up lifting! To know their struggles and achievements, most of all keeping Jehovah in the forefront, saw them through many opticals. These girls had very strong and grounded parents. Will Smith congrats, I smell an Oscar! Great 👍 job!

Awesome ! Just saw the King Richard movie last night..... and really enjoyed it. This morning ran into a man who knows Oracene and her family here in Saginaw from "back in the day". Such an inspiring family.... I think the religion was the backbone and the guiding force in the amazing achievements (through a lot of hard work and natural ability) of Serena and Venuse. So happy for the family. :) Props to all of you !
