I remember years ago, 10 to 20 years ago there was a lot more done and said regarding Black History Month. What happened?
It’s important to remember what Black History Month is and what it meant to the liberation of people and the building of the USA.
One of the hopes I have in remembering people like Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and many, many more is that I won’t forget and that through hearing, reading and watching their stories on tv that the world could be changed and not repeat the horrors of its past.
What’s happened to Black History Month? How do you celebrated the month?

Pushing through the bowed strings of memory, experiences and today’s hurdles does not release her to go forward.
The sharp arrows pressing against the strings have fired at the heart of her, piercing the flesh that was once resilient.
The tears once wet streaming down her face are now dry but the marks of what was and sometimes still is are buried in the stench of creviced scars.
In this reality she gets strength from seeing what’s not there but yet still is, she believes the Creators plan clinging on to what’s been promised and the love she can not deny that is real.
Has she been prepared for this time, every experience and hurdle bringing her to an understanding that she will never understand but now accepts believing there was and is a Godly purpose that will be known if not here there in the place where joy, peace and love reign.

One finds herself with her family and friends at a county fair.
One finds himself in the middle of a crop of corn.
One finds herself in a courtroom as a Judge ready to give out a sentence.
One finds herself in an office on the 25th floor.
One finds himself cooking a large meal in an executive restaurant.
One finds herself in the middle of a tropical location absorbing the sun having fun.
One finds himself taking care of elderly patience in a nursing home.
No matter where they find themselves the question is always where is their HEART?
