"44"






I am happy.

Not just because the President is a Black man but he embodies the mission we have all be charged with, giving.

I was raised by a woman that embodied this same mission. My mother gave to my friends, family, and strangers without question. She would say you give because its RIGHT. No other reason mattered. You do because you CAN.

Our President has charged America to give back and to do what we can to rebuild OUR country. I'm proud of my President. I'm finally proud of my country. We need to recognize that not all of America was celebrating on 1/20/09. There are people who will mistreat one another. There will still be murders and crimes. Drug dealers will still sell drugs. There will be people who will still think Black men are unintelligent and lazy and that all black women sit around and have babies. Evil will still put forth its charged to destroy. We need to pray daily for country and our President. Evil will come after our President. Lincoln - assassinated, JFK and Bobby Kennedy - assassinated, MLK-Malcom x - assassinated. This is the reality of our nation. Evil lurks.

Good can win though. We can promote love daily and do our part.

I'm proud. Our First Family is wonderful. Michelle is a great role model for our girls and even women. Barack loves his wife and black women need to see this PUBLICLY. We need a see a black man love his black wife. Michelle spoke of how the girls love to see them hold hands. She spoke that their children have a sense of security because of this. Powerful.

We celebrate the Obamas. We celebrate the spirit of giving.

Let's go to work.
The fight has ONLY just begun.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I AM A SEXIST MALE.

I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

I will never, ever, never, ever live in a box.


again.


If I can't be appreciated, celebrated, loved, and befriended with honestly and openly....with no conditions and controls.....then I can't be....for you.

I'm a good friend.  I'm a good person. I deserve good things from good people who really want to celebrate whatever connection I have with them....outside the box.


I'm free to be.

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross



The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.


The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …
