One night the Devil came home beat up pretty bad. He almost fell to the floor, but Mama was there to catch him; blood was everywhere. She gently sat him down in his recliner.

“I don’t want to go to no damn hospital woman, just get me some alcohol and bandages.”
“Thomas I think you need some stitches… Continue

December 25, 2001 The 16 year old twins Twon and Qwon rose from their beds anxious to see if the mom who very rarely keeps her word just happened to keep it this year and get them those Jordans they had been hounding her for. As they looked into the living room two shoe boxes wrapped in newspaper sat under their tree, which was really a plant with some school ornaments on it they had made when they were young. It was what it was in the projects. As they raced across the living room, damn near… Continue

Look, there out the window, isn’t that Ms. Smith?
She’s so well dressed; her beauty truly a gift.
You say those children all belong to her
Oh what a blessing to a proud husband, I’m sure.
What, no husband?

No, no don’t say that, her life is a common fad…
Wait one minute that limp she never… Continue

Affirmative Action and Education
Even though affirmative action was designed to eliminate discrimination, affirmative action has become an effective tool in creating opportunities for minorities in Corporate America and in the Higher Education system. For years minorities have struggled for equality and acceptance in the “Land of Opportunity” and for years they have been barriers put in place to keep minorities “in their places”. However, President John F. Kennedy issued an Executive Order… Continue

The saga begins and ends here. I moved to a college town a little over two years ago. I worked for a real estate company, the biggest mistake of my life. I remember the very first day I saw him with his red devilish eyes. He was recently divorce and later I learned why. I enjoyed my first few months in the company because I sat in a quiet office with a few nice young ladies we would have the normal office discussions and they were a few people in the office that I became real cool with at least… Continue

I would say I don’t need you but who would I call on in my time of sorrow
You extend your ear I extend my heart
You make me laugh when I really want to cry
You help understand me
You help me realize my strengths
There are times that I may hurt you
It’s never intentional
I am insecure at times and my mind plays tricks on me
Making me believe that you are against me
So for that I apologize
I must inform you that there is only one me

Of all His creations, God gave the most precious responsibility to woman.
The responsibility of being a Godly Mother, a Godly Mother’s responsibilities go far beyond her biological children.
A Godly Mother is responsible for her nieces, nephews, and cousins, the children down the block and the neighbor’s children.
Many women believe that she must only be responsible for the nurturing and caring of her own children. This is not the characteristic of the GODly Mother.
What if… Continue

It's the questions, the questions, the questions, the questions....
Well, this is my first blog to date and I am recovering from an emotionally draining heartbreak. After many debates, fights, talks and strain things still make no sense. They say if you love someone and you let them go and if they come back they were yours....but what if they never come back, do you just sit and try to accept the fact that they never will and try to hydrate your dried our heart. Or do you engulf… Continue
