Wow! I’ve lived to witness yet another historic moment in time — South Africa’s first Black President, Nelson MANDELA being eulogized by America’s first Black President, Barack OBAMA.

I never want to take for granted what went into making me a person who loves and embraces who I AM. And may I never forget my accountability to my family and community — they are one in the same.
A historic day that reminds me to be diligent and conscious of the legacy I’m creating. And hopeful of the day many years removed, to have grands and great grands to share all of the things I’ve been blessed to witness in my lifetime.
As I tell my Daughter each morning as she heads into her school…
Hamba Kahle Nelson MANDELA. Your work on Mother Earth is complete.
