Oh, God, have mercy on me, for I was deaf dumb and blind but thought I could see. I was a college student at San Francisco State College/now University. I was in the cafeteria playing bid whist when Brother Edward came to save us with Muhammad Speaks. Oh, Allah, please have mercy on me for I rejected your angels sent to save me. We cursed Brother Edward, told him to git the fuck out our faces with that Muhammad Speaks bullshit, we spit on him, though he could have retaliated with Karate but he humbled himself to save us deaf dumb and blind college students who thought we knew everything but didn't know shit, not a goddamn thing. But Brother Edward persisted, humbled by the knowledge he had from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

No matter how much we cursed him, spat on him, ridiculed him, he persisted with the truth until we submitted and in the end we did. Some of us joined the Nation of Islam, others joined the Sunni movement of Waritth Din Muhammad, some became Shi'ite. But Brother Edward was the evangelist.

And so today, we honor and praise Brother Edward, Nation of Islam soldier, who saved us deaf dumb and blind intellectuals, who knew nothing but thought we knew everything. Thank you Brother Edward and all the FOI who came on campus to save us deaf dumb and blind students.

--Marvin X
