Celebrate Juneteenth Day, America!

On this Day… CELEBRATE JUNETEENTH! In recent decades, we’ve heard little to nothing about Juneteenth Day but I think it is an important occasion for African Americans to observe. I find it rather disconcerting that I never heard the term Juneteenth until about fifteen years ago. June 19th, known as Juneteenth Day, Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is...

Celebrate Women!

Celebrate Women!

March 8, INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY It is my unsubstantiated opinion that women were the improvement model for when God made man. All women are special, God designed us that way. All women do not walk in it because many do not feel or believe it. The world may not see it because of its perception of value but it’s...

Somewhere at the top of that list of national polarizing issues is racism. Racism is nothing new in the USA or globally. It has existed as far back as earliest ancient...

I can vividly remember where I was; in my library/office at home in rural Virginia. I recall watching the first tower ablaze on television. I honestly thought it was a disaster movie of some kind because...
