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.

Hope Reflected, Restored, and Repositoned with Meesh Peters and Tijani Musa.

Rob Bell in his 2016 book How to Be Here, reflects, “That question the blinking line in your mind or on your mobile device asks is: Who are you to do this? It can keep you locked up for years, living in fear and doubt, looking over your fence or your shoulder, and comparing yourself with the people around you. But the first word about you is a gift, and you’re here, breathing, and you get to participate in the world’s ongoing creation. Creation is exhausting, exhilarating, draining, and invigorating, and it’s also a mystery because everybody sits down to…

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…

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…

What We Know Now featuring environmental chemist, photographer, art collector, Patric Gregory McCoy

I believe everyone not only has a story but is a story. Each of our stories evolves as a journey, not a destination, a process, not an event. We learn as we become emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically. Only when we look back and remember can we understand. This week, we look into the rearview mirror of the eternity of one intelligent,  evolving, creative story. He has discovered that life works for him because he knows everything he manifests on the outside results from who he has become on the inside. In the beginning chapters, Patric Gregory McCoy was born…

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…
