Young Offers Words of Inspiration

Philadelphia's mayor made a trip to Lauderdale County on Sunday to inspire members of the community.

Mayor James Young spoke at Friendship Baptist Church in Collinsville on Sunday afternoon as part of its Black History Month program. Young told Newscenter 11 he hoped to provide inspiration while emphasizing the diligent mindset people should have to move this generation forward.

"My message to the young people is number one, to love God, love yourself," Mayor Young said. "And strive to accomplish those things that have already been accomplished, but also have a mindset to want to reinvent some things. "

Mayor Young said no matter what your skin color is, everyone has a hero lying inside of them.
