Letter: Success is best measured by joy, not money
Re: ‘A look back at Nickelodeon’s “golden age”’ (Metro, Sept. 24)
I liked your article in Tuesday’s paper on Nickelodeon. One of your paragraphs talks about how Kenan and Kel no longer speak. At the end, you said Kenan is on “SNL” and Kel becomes a gospel singer. You perceived just because one is an actor, that he is more successful.
In today’s world that is what people think and it is all about money — that is NOT how true success is measured. Most of the actors that have been on “SNL,” although very funny, have not really led successful lives. They end up making bad movies or die in some lonely hotel room from a drug overdose.
But being a gospel singer is true success. There may not be the money in it, which is how you may measure success, but I guarantee you he is a very happy person singing God’s word and helping people to love Christ.
