Imagine an organization that fuels its power through service above self. Join my conversation with Ms. Rene Laws, Rotary 7610 District Governor Elect

Over the past three years, Frankly Speaking with Tyra G has been intentionally curating thematic stories across generations, cultures, and genres. We are learning from and paying tribute to servant leaders, game-changing entrepreneurs, innovative organizations, planting seeds that yield precious harvests, and all who live “despite “rather than “because of.” These leaders and organizations have chosen SERVICE to heal themselves and the nation. Service as a way of lighting up the darkness. Tonight, we are hearing one voice out of 1.4 million members of a 117-year-old international organization called Rotary. Rotary has continued to grow itself into a position of…

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES. This movie changed me. A Conversation with NPR movie critic Lily Persy and guest commentator, Virgie Tovar

REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES. This movie changed me. A Conversation with NPR movie critic Lily Persy and guest commentator, Virgie Tovar

“Jimmy, Ana’s boyfriend, says, “You’re not fat. You’re beautiful.” She is both. “Real Women Have Curves” doesn’t argue that Ana is beautiful on the “inside,” like the Gwyneth Paltrow character in “Shallow Hal,” but that she is beautiful inside and out–love handles, big boobs, round cheeks, and all. “Turn the lights on,” she shyly tells Jimmy. “I want you to see me. See, this is what I look like.” Ana has learned to accept herself. It is more than her mother can do. There have been several movies recently about the second generation of children of immigrants–Indian, Filipino, Chinese, Korean,…

NEW YEAR MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS featuring Tyra G

NEW YEAR MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS featuring Tyra G

What’s so special about celebrating the New Year? “Why does the start of the new year carry such special symbolism? And why is its celebration so common around the world, as it has been for at least as long as there have been calendars? Behavior this universal must surely be tied to something basic in the human animal, something profoundly meaningful and important, given all the energy and resources we invest not just in the celebration but also in our efforts to make good on a fresh set of resolutions, even though we mostly fail to keep them. It’s fascinating…

REWIND: Unwrapping his gift of music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

REWIND: Unwrapping his gift of music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

A 2018 blog written by musicians who declare they believe in music says, “Music is simply a very special language that everyone understands. There is no feeling that cannot be described and transported through music. It preserves memories for eternity, turns dreams into reality. It caresses the soul or screams unmistakably. Music conquers fear, dries tears, gives courage and strength. It is the safe and expressive home of our emotions – with all facets between joy and pain, irrepressible lust for life, and thoughtfulness. Music can turn enemies into friends and cross borders. It can ensure that the injustices of…

Unwrapping gifts daddy Jay Little and daughter Gia build a gift of legacy together.

Author Kahlil Gibran in his 1962 book The Prophet says, “And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children. And he said: Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even…

The Voices of Women of Vietnam. Thank you for your service.

The Voices of Women of Vietnam. Thank you for your service.

My goal in November is to share varied war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. I am celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at high costs. We are reminded that war is a part of human history. The Vietnam war was my coming-of-age war. I became immersed in and confused by the concurrent war at home about the necessity of US involvement while at the same time grieving over school friends who paid the ultimate price. There were…

Thank you for your service featuring Brig-Gen, USAF, Ret. Sandra Gregory

Thank you for your service featuring Brig-Gen, USAF, Ret. Sandra Gregory

Do you go the extra mile? Do you do more than what is expected? Do you expect the best? These questions pertain not only to your relationship with the world but also to how you treat yourself. Do you go the extra mile when it comes to you, or do you think that the least is enough for you? Going the extra mile means taking what you have and looking for ways to expand it— you believe in your ability to make it happen. Going the extra mile means doing just a little more than is expected, being just a…

“We are in a time of new suns” says emergent startegist, Adrienne Maree Brown

"We are in a time of new suns" says emergent startegist, Adrienne Maree Brown

“What a time to be alive,” Adrienne Maree Brown has written. “Right now we are in a fast river together — every day there are changes that seemed unimaginable until they occurred.” Adrienne Maree Brown and others use many words and phrases to describe what she does, and who she is: A student of complexity. A student of change and of how groups change together. A “scholar of belonging.” A “scholar of magic.” She grew up loving science fiction, and thought we’d be driving flying cars by now; yet, has found in speculative fiction the transformative force of vision and…

The blessing of life and legacy featuring Karen and Cheyenne Harris

The blessing of life and legacy featuring Karen and Cheyenne Harris

A legacy may take many forms – children, grandchildren, a business, an ideal, a book, a community, a home, or some piece of ourselves. Our legacy naturally intrigues us. Understandably, we would want to know how the world will remember us after we’re gone. How many of us will be surprised? How many of us live so that our legacy reflects all that we genuinely hold most near and dear? How many of us are living with integrity and courage? Leaving a legacy is a human need. It is, in part, selfish – we want to feel immortal. We also…
