Black History Month: Stories that need telling with guest Colonel Arthur Nick Nicolson Retired, and current president of the Mt.Olive Cemetery Historical Preservation Society

Black History Month: Stories that need telling with guest Colonel Arthur Nick Nicolson Retired, and current president of the Mt.Olive Cemetery Historical Preservation Society

The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. That September, the Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson, and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. By the late 1960s, thanks in part to the Civil Rights Movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Negro History Week had evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses.

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Healing the Wreakage with Dr. Sarah A. John in Haiti

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Healing the Wreakage with Dr. Sarah A. John in Haiti

“It’s true that, depending upon which community to ultimately decide to call a second home, you might just be the only medical professional available to meet the needs of multitudes.  The more remote the community in a developing country, the less likely it is to have a Western-trained medical professional.  You are likely to be very welcomed in your new community, but you should also expect to be viewed as an outsider and treated as such until you’ve established yourself and proven your abilities.  You’ll need to work with the community’s healers and find common ground in the provision of patient…

REWIND: Sweep in a new season with the courage to be vulnerable with Dr. Brene Brown and Krista Tippett from NPR

Spring is the season during which the natural world revives and reinvigorates after the colder winter months. During spring, dormant plants begin to grow again, new seedlings sprout out of the ground and hibernating animals awake. What are you doing to revive and reinvigorate your dreams, your soul, your mind? What script are you creating? Does it contain thoughts like “I am not enough!” or “I am more than enough!”? Are you stuck between your no longer and you not yet? Or are you willing to take new risks and experience the vulnerability that comes with it? Do you understand that…

Meet  Ms. Quay Holland, WELLTH Coach and Rebalance Strategist

Karmic astrologer Dora Jones believes, And I quote; “Each of us comes into life with a promise, a gift, a passion, and a deep, heartfelt desire.” The promise is what you have come to life to master. You have promised to overcome, resolve, or heal some aspect of your consciousness. As you face your life’s experiences, you are given the opportunity to fulfill this promise. Your responses to your experiences determine whether you fulfill or break the promise you have made to yourself. The gift is what you have come to give to life. It is the cornerstone of self-determination and…

Thank You for Your Service Hershel Holiday Sr. A View of War as a Family Affair.

Veterans Day honors all of those who have served the country in war or peace — dead or alive — although it’s primarily intended to thank living veterans for their sacrifices. It was initially called Armistice Day, commemorating the end of World War I. World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany…

"Time is the fire in which we burn" --Gene Rodenberry. Join our conversation with Hollywood screenwriter Christopher Derrick about the impact of AI, mediocrity, and exposure in storytelling.

“If man is to survive, he will have learned to take delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear.” “A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or turns his back on it and starts to wither away.” “Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate but take a special delight in ideas…

Were it not for those who care featuring developmental psychologist Suzanne Le Menestrel.

My thoughts are agitated when I look at our nation today, the one for which we are leaving a legacy. What will it look like? I think of the young girl in middle school who wants so much to escape the personal assaults she finds on social media. I think of the young man addicted to violent video games. I think of parents who see their child as lazy and distant; not understanding those behaviors could be a sign of depression. I think of the teacher who has so many children in her classroom that she cannot adequately address their…
