Black History Month

February 1st is an immensely important date in the History of our great Country in that it marks the first day of the month, that has been dedicated to the Observance, Celebration, and Commemoration of “Black History Month”, also known as “African-American History Month”.

This month has always been a very reflective, appreciative, and blessed month in my life. As I have read about, learned of, and thought upon the individuals who were successful in bringing about one of the most enlightened changes our World has ever known by successfully changing evil perceptions and opening closed eyes to the fact that we are ALL created equal!! We are ALL Brothers and Sisters regardless of the color of our skin, our nationality, or our origin!!

It is inspiring to think about the immense light, the significant change, and the impacting influence a handful of individuals were able to bring into our World. The sacrifice, dedication, and persistence of these individuals has brought so much love, light, and understanding into a once darkened and deceived world.

I am so full of gratitude, admiration, and love for those individuals who have sacrificed to bring about such a Godly inspired change, for those who have enhanced the quality of our lives, for those individuals who have left their mark upon our World and left it a much better place for the rest of us!
