Rest in Peace: Cecily Tyson 


Rest In Peace: What can I say about a true icon who always brought dignity, integrity, beauty and strength to her roles.

Cecily Tyson was truly a legendary-award winning actress who broke so many barriers for today’s actors. She was very selective with her roles which lead to a stellar body of work.

The world lost a great one! My condolences to her family, friends and all her fans who loved her.

46: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. becomes the 46th President! 

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. becomes the 46th president

 

Madame Vice President: Kamala D. Harris was sworn in as vice president of the United States

 

Amanda Gorman, the nation's youngest inaugural poet laureate

 

 

On this day, January 20, 2021, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was sworn in as our 46th President of the United States. Kamala Harris was sworn in as Vice President. 

This was a historic event because Kamala D. Harris is the first Black and South Asian Woman to serve in the second highest office in the country. 

Amanda Gorman became the nation's youngest inaugural poet laureate as she spoke at President Joe Biden's inauguration. 

After 4 years of darkness and pain, we can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. With the new administration, there is hope for a better tomorrow. I look forward to a restored sense of dignity, decency, and truthfulness to our nation again. I know this won’t happen overnight. There’s so much work to do but I know we will prevail. 

Over the past 8 months, the Covid 19 pandemic has ravished our nation. Over 400,000 people have died. Even in my own family and circle of friends, I’ve lost loved ones to Covid. We have to get it under control! 

This is not a hoax! We must get the virus under control because we cannot move forward with our economy until we do. People must get back to work. Businesses that have closed need to come back. We must get Broadway back! We need to go back to our restaurants and dine in again. We need our economy back! I feel good about this administration. Even before they were sworn in, they were assembling their task force to combat it. We now have a chance to beat it. 

As long as there is life, there is hope. The Biden administration brings us hope. Hope that they will work with the nation to bring unity and justice to everyone. President Biden vows to heal and unite our nation in crisis. I believe he will give it his all. 

I am hopeful for better days ahead! 

Much love, 

Benita Charles

 

 

Happy MLK Day! 

 

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (MLK Day)!

 

Today, we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was one of the greatest leaders of all time who fought for equity for all. He showed the world that one person can make a difference.

His fight is especially important in light of recent events of injustice and civil unrest. It’s a reminder that there’s still a lot of work to do! 

Let us continue to develop our talents and gifts to make a difference and change the world!

AS I CLOSE THE DOOR 

Dear Lord, as I close the door on the old year, I ponder the things I've done... the things I've said and the joys I've had I wonder, have I lost or won? 

I've thought of new friends I have made, and the old ones, staunch and true... the paths of the old year made easier, Lord, because I have walked them with You 

I think of all the many times, when my burdens were so heavy to bear, and how my faith slipped away from me but somehow You were always there 

Now, as I open the door to this New Year, and carefully peep inside, I wonder what it holds for me... but I'll throw the door open wide. 

Whatever it brings to me and mine, I'll meet it with a heart so true... I know that, Lord, whatever it may be, You'll be there to carry me through! 

--Merrei Thompson
