Honesty is the Best Policy

Dear Facebook,

I think it's time to be honest with you. I have been cheating on you with Twitter. Twitter and I have been knowing each other since 2009 but didn't became close until last year, thanks to my Blackberry. I still like you it's just that you are too slow and don't fit the Blackberry. Twitter is faster gives me constant updates and tells me what's going on in the world. Twitter keeps me stimulated. But, I'm not letting you go. We can have a threesome between me, you, and Twitter. Don't worry it will work out because you are my computer love and Twitter is my Blackberry love. It's just that I have my Blackberry with me all the time.

I apologize for neglecting you.

Love

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Women and Girls are Taking Action in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS

Now it's time for you to decide: What can you do?

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls. It is coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health (OWH). It helps organizations across the country come together to offer support, encourage discussion, and teach women and girls about prevention of HIV, the importance of getting tested for HIV, and how to live with and manage HIV/AIDS.

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is observed specifically on March 10 every year, but OWH encourages organizations to hold events throughout the month of March.

Quote of the Day

"If there's just one piece of advice i can give you, it's this - when there's something you really want, fight for it, don't give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you've lost hope, ask yourself if 10 years from now, you're gonna wish you gave it just one more shot. because the best things in life, they don't come free."

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Today would have been Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 82nd birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. sacrificed his home life and his life so that we can have equality, justice, and an opportunity for a better life. He raised public consciousness about the civil rights movement and showed the world that America was not living up to its own creed, “All Men are Created Equal.” How can America preach democracy to the world and deprive its citizens their rights.

Martin Luther King established himself as the greatest orator in United States history. King's "I Have A Dream" speech still send chills down my spine. I learned about King at a early age. The more I learned about King's life and heard his speeches the more I became inspired to always to do my best, I gained a sense of pride. This is missing in the younger generation. We have failed to educate Black youth on the sacrifices our ancestors made for us to be able to achieve our dreams, it's never too late. We need to always teach the younger generation about King's legacy, regardless of race.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will always have a special place in my heart. I will make sure that my children will know about King and his contributions to the world, how he paved the way for us. God willing, I will be in Washington, D.C. on the day Martin Luther King, Jr.'s National Memorial is unveiled.

Happy Birthday and Thank you Dr. King!
