I can't believe the final show has aired. I'm going to miss her and thought her "final message" today was perfect.
The two United Center shows were amazing but, honestly, I could've done without all the "star" power. I guess I should've been impressed but I wasn't. My three favorite moments had absolutely nothing to do with star wattage - when the group of girls came out to thank Oprah for giving them a sense of "self" during the first show, I cried. When the Morehouse men came out to do the same and told some of their stories, I did the same. And when Dr. Angelou, whom I think is a true "star", came out and read her poem, I choked up again. Helping all of those people is quite the legacy and I'm just in awe of her for that.
Oh wait - when Michael Jordan came out, I clapped and cheered, so I guess I did fall for some of that star power. Not that I believe for a second that he & Oprah pal around together, though.
I can't wait to see what she's going to do next. She just doesn't strike me as the type who will sit around eating bon-bons or sitting on the couch with the remote in her hand as she retires...
