Word of the Day
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities." - Dr. Seuss
Happy International Women’s Day!
Joseph Kony is the world’s worst war criminal. In 1987 he took over leadership of an existing rebel group and renamed it the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). The LRA is encouraged to rape, mutilate, and kill civilians–often with blunt weapons.
The LRA has earned a reputation for its cruel and brutal tactics. When Joseph Kony found himself running out of fighters, he started abducting children to be soldiers in his army or “wives” for his officers.
In its 26-year history, the LRA has abducted more than 30,000 children and displaced at least 2.1 million people.
Joseph Kony has to be arrested before he destroys an entire country and its children.
This isn’t about politics, it’s about HUMANITY!
Get involved TODAY!!
The future is so bright, I gotta wear shades!
Some people are just born with style and grace. It’s just a DNA thing that can’t be learned. My mother is one of those fortunate souls. One of the many aspects of her that I admire, is her iconic fashion sense.
When I think about her amazing life thus far, and all she has accomplished it boggles my mind. It is my goal to aspire to be as thoughtful, kind, generous, creative, loving, wise, and Holy Ghost- filled as her one day.
Her style has evolved so effortlessly. As a teenager in the 60’s she and her boarding school mates would design and create their own clothes; a blend of traditional Ghanaian cloth intermixed with British and American trends.
There is a story behind every photo within her library of albums. I love the story behind the photo “She Wasn’t Tardy for the Party”. Her skirt was her own design (of course) but it was originally full length. She and my Dad were throwing a party and she wasn’t too fond the floor length look for that particular outfit. With guests arriving at the door ready to eat and have a good time, she altered the skirt and added a few accents just in time.
She attended to her guests like a gracious host, while making time to get down on the dance floor to do “the bump” and “the hustle” with her guests within minutes of performing alterations.
If that’s not an example of style and grace under pressure, I’m not sure what is.
Thank you Mom, for being an inspiration and a solid pillar of faith for my sisters and I to look up to.
