Women’s History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women's History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women’s History Month is celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at great costs. Considering this is the year after the 101st year anniversary of WWI, we are reminded that war is a part of human history. My goal is to share diverse war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. 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…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

In her own words, “We had music growing up, 78RPM’s that evolved into 45RPM’s and, always, the radio.  The radio in my day, Black and white, played everything.  Gospel Spirituals, even some opera when Leontyne Price came along.  You could listen to R & B late at night or you could go to the other station and listen to popular music.  There was also jazz if the wind was right.  I feel so sorry for the kids who only hear one kind of music.  Where do your dreams come from? My dream was not to publish or to even be…

Women's History Month salutes women daring greatly, featuring Helenia Bragg and Kari Galloway and the story of Friends of Guest House

We begin Women’s History and Appreciation Month celebrating phenomenal women who walk into this space through many doors. They willingly share their stories authentically and often vulnerably in order to pay forward what they have learned and to celebrate each other.  Thank you, ladies! Irish author C.S. Lewis says, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You Too? I thought I was the only one.” As a result of the women who have agreed to join me at the table, many friendships, although virtual will be forged. Author and life coach Iyanla Vanzant says,…

Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote.

Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote.

Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history, and the society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa. Did you know? To coincide with Women’s History Month 2011, the White House issued a 50-year progress report on the status of women in the United States. It found that younger women are now more likely than their male counterparts to hold…

“THIS IS US” featuring Cape Cod Entrepreneur Sandy Wycoff.

"THIS IS US" featuring Cape Cod Entrepreneur Sandy Wycoff.

Life will accommodate you in any way that you choose. Life is always listening to the silent requests of your heart and mind. Life is always surveying the landscape of your heart, gathering the bits and pieces of the emotions buried there. Life can be an open book through which you can learn about great mysteries and wonders. Or life can be a mysterious and frightening pit through which you fear to tread. Or life can be a basket into which you can place your treasures, in which you carry abundant blessings. Until today, you may not have realized that…

Tapping into Joy featuring Deb Beroset, award-winning journalist, speaker, and seasoned PR expert.

Author and coach Iyanla Vanzant, in her 2000 book, Until Today, suggests, “If you are waiting for something to happen that will make you happy, you are killing off your joy. Joy comes through you. Happiness comes to you. If you seek your joy within, you will be happy, no matter what happens. It is easy to believe in more than what you can see when you know you will be protected, guided, and blessed. If you only believe what you can see around you, you may miss the blessings right under your nose. If you have and hold love…

Were it not for those who care, featuring Jaleh Moslehi, Chairperson of the Board, of the Center for Improving Women’s Lives

Were it not for those who care, featuring Jaleh Moslehi, Chairperson of the Board, of the Center for Improving Women's Lives

Susan Taylor, Essence Magazine Editor-in-Chief said in her 1993 book, In the Spirit: “There is a wisdom that is as much a part of our being as our flesh and blood and bones. Intuition, the deepest knowing. It is alive in us as children as simple faith in our feelings. But as we grow up and the outer world begins to matter more, the channel to intuition narrows. Western culture stifles intuition, dismissing what can’t be explained logically and scientifically, and discouraging reflection and feeling. It offers no real answers to how life should be lived. But life is more…

Chocolate After Midnight: Own Your Magic featuring Deb Beroset

Chocolate After Midnight: Own Your Magic featuring Deb Beroset

Chocolate is an excellent metaphor for life. It’s rich, full of energy, and joyful to the senses. It also represents some of the struggles in life: guilt, complexity, and unrelenting desire for more. Midnight is the transition from one day to the next, a point in time. Today, Frankly Speaking with Tyra G invites all listeners to Chocolate after Midnight. Each time we share Chocolate after Midnight, we walk out of judgment and into a space of acceptance. We walk out of fear and into a place where “impossible” is merely a word to describe the degree of difficulty. Here…

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

Legacy is about life and living. It’s about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. The world isn’t connected only by molecules. It’s connected by stories, traditions, memories, hopes, and dreams. We are connected by the legacies passed down from those who came before us and the legacies we will pass down to those who come after us. English writer Dorothy Sayers, “Paradoxical as it may seem, to believe in youth is to look backward; to look forward, we must believe in age.” Today I have two guests that present legacy through different lenses.…

New weapons in the fight against human trafficking revealed with advocate Ms. Anne Basham

New weapons in the fight against human trafficking revealed with advocate Ms. Anne Basham

Researchers have found that sex traffickers often target children and youth with a history of maltreatment, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, and minimal social support. About 10,000 children a year suffer the horrors of commercial sexual exploitation in the United States. Each victim on average is forced to have sex more than five times a day. Yet the buyers who fuel the child sex trade are seldom held accountable. Most just blend back into their families, jobs, and neighborhoods. My guest at the table today is a wonderful resource to educate us about the human trafficking space. Beyond that, she is also an expert and advocate in the…
