Shirley Sherrod Fired From White House

Shirley Sherrod Fired From White House
When we think of the Internet, we admire the advancements in technology and how life has been made so much easier. We surf the web with ease because in this Information Age, everything is just a click away. It's had advantages and disadvantages. Many have gained employment and shared good information. Unfortunately for Shirley Sherrod that wasn't the case.

Recently, Shirley Sherrod, former USDA State Director, overseeing the rural development in Georgia, lost her job fueled by misinformation. A snippet of a speech she had delivered in previous months, spitefully surfaced and was misconstrued as racist.

The Obama Administration denounced Sherrod and within 48 hours became apologetic along with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsak.

Black Man! Daddy!

400643_uncle_and_nephewI want to start out by saying that this is my article filled with things I have seen through my eyes.  I want to thank everyone that participated in the part one of Black Man.  I was going to write about enablers and the black man but I will save that for part three.

GOD LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT HE MADE YOU A DAD!

There are so many sisters with families. The most important person missing from a lot of these families is daddy. I drive transit buses for a living and for most of the month; you see a majority of women and children. When the first week of the month rolls around, DADDY”S HOME! He’s grocery shopping with his family, getting new clothes and shoes at the mall, his woman is paying HIS bus fare and all is good. When that week is over you don’t see him anymore.

Are We Our Brothers Keeper?

I am on my computer every morning and I say good morning to everyone in my chat box. Most will respond and say good morning back. Some will ask how I'm doing, few will hold a conversation for a few minutes, and some will say absolutely nothing.

The other day I was doing my daily ritual, when a wonderful author by the name of Sandra Peterson Lott popped up and told me that I had made her day. I was trying to figure out what I had done to make her say that. Maybe she had read something that I wrote. She said that I had reached out to her and that many people don't do that. She said that she just wanted to thank me. I know it will sound corny but I was touched and brought to tears. Such a small gesture made someone’s day. I was honored and felt great the rest of the day. You never know what a person needs but God does and He used me to bring happiness to someone else.

We can all do that and I challenge you to.
