Los Cerritos Community News
PASADENA, Calif. –
This has been a magical year for J.R. Martinez. Last night the retired solider won the Mirror Ball as the latest champion of "Dancing With the Stars," and now he can look forward to a special ride down Colorado Boulevard as the Grand Marshall of the 2012 Pasadena Tournament of Roses.
What a thrill and what an inspiration to kick off the new year by celebrating the successes and accomplishments of Martinez who has inspired me to continue to reach higher and try harder in my daily life.
I would love to interview JR Martinez for Los Cerritos Community News. As a matter of fact, I am going to call the media department at the Tournament of Roses to see if I can get 10 minutes of "chat" time with J.R.
The theme of the 2012 Rose Parade is "Just Imagine…" and I cannot imagine what is going through the mind of Mr. Martinez during these past couple of weeks. It has been a whirlwind of wonderment, and he has become one of the most loved and most admired American's for 2011.
