Good morning, it’s Mother’s Day and it is the Lord’s Day! I hope everyone is out and about appreciating their mother’s today as well as everyday. Thank you for the mother’s who believe, trust and love us unconditionally because you are responsible for where we all are today!
On this day, for people who have lost their mother’s or grandmother’s who played the motherly role in their life I want you all to remember this quote by Dr. Seuss.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
I know this quote hits home for me, being the 9th year that my grandmother isn’t here with me. However, I find comfort in knowing that my goal on earth is to make my mother and my grandmother proud and I will not stop until I fulfill that. Today think of all the people who ever told you, “no” or gave up on you and your mom was there to pick you up.
Think of the distasteful or disrespectful things that you might have done towards your mom and remember how she still embraced you each and every time because she never ceases to see the good in you. I believe mother’s are the rocks, they are the full circle, without them and without women in general there would not be a human race. Today I encourage you to tell your mother’s: “Dear mama, you are appreciated.”, and then show it each and every day in each and every way!

Good morning to all, I hope everyone has been up and anxious anticipating graduation ceremonies all over the world. Well, today is a very special and memorable day for the student body and graduates of class of 2016 at Howard University. Barack Obama and Cicely Tyson have just arrived at the Howard University Commencement this morning, what a pleasant surprise, right?
91 year old, Cicely Tyson spoke last night at a dinner for the upcoming graduates and she was greatly honored. She is also receiving an honorary award from Howard University today, that is beautiful! Barack Obama has definitely been making many appearances at different historical places before he leaves the White House. The speaking at the commencement is happening right now and the #BisonPride and joy of the real #HU is very much evident.
Videos are going viral all over the internet from celebrities that are alumni of colleges all over. Yandy Smith, showed her appreciation of her school, Howard University, of course letting her fans know that she’s a proud Bison and her children will be attending when that time comes. Barack Obama couldn’t be more proud to shed his wisdom to the beautiful and successful graduating class of 2016!
Congratulations to all the graduates, your hard work always pays off!

I do not know if everyone agrees with the song, “Started from the bottom”, but wherever Drake started from, he is definitely here now! Drake just confirmed that his album “Views” has sold a million copies in one week. Have you bought yours yet?
This is good news for an artist considering the fact that it is very easy to download free music these days. Drake, often referred to as the sentimental artist by many, never stops grinding and it clearly pays off. The album “Views” is a big milestone for him and I believe he is more than grateful for where life has taken him. Truth be told, many people make fun of how corny Drake can be at times, (including myself), but that doesn’t change the fact that he makes music that many people appreciate, can relate to and can vibe with.
I’ve heard different reviews about this latest album, saying that most of the songs are “slow”, but I’m pretty sure that this is the kind of music that Drake prefers to make. If you don’t like it then, that’s fine because as an artist once your following is built up and sturdy your creativity flourishes even more. When you make good music then that’s just what you do and Drake is continuously showing us that this is what he was made for.
Make sure you all get that album!

President Barack Obama is back at it again with leaving his trail of love, wisdom, and care all over the world as he gets ready to leave the white house *tear*. The white house just confirmed that Barack Obama has granted clemency to 58 men and women who have earned a second chance! It really can’t get any better then him as commander and cheif in the white house.
This gracious act is one of the numerous things that shows why this strong man needs to be in the office for a THIRD term. Don’t you agree? Who wouldn’t be grateful for a second chance in life, no matter what you did, second chances can make all the difference. Having a president who sees people as people and struggles as struggles with no prejudice is so comforting. I know you think of yourself more than a number, right? These 58 men and women were nonviolent drug offenders and have done the necessary tasks in order to receive a clean slate.
It is no surprise to anyone that the majority of the people in jail are behind bars for minor things and are also minorities. This president never ceases to amaze the world with the little hints of genuine concern for the people of this nation. Whether you agree with him or not, he is persevering. Barack Obama is the only president in history who lives up to the slogan of America “In God we trust”, while many others have used it in vain. Barack Obama has come, he has seen, he has loved, and he has conquered!
Despite what you choose to see or believe that fats remain the same. Thank you Obama from the bottom of my heart from everything you have done for us! Hate him or love him you are all still watching him!

“Your heart is the most sacred place in the universe. You deserve the most supreme, kind, gentle, illuminating love and most trust worthy guardians of this holy embodiment of you. You deserve to be held in truth. With hands that want to continue to sculpt you and help carry you into a better you. Do not let another moment pass where you aren’t receiving this respect. This love. This is your home. Your precious treasure. Your life force. Don’t just let anyone in. Only let those who come in your highest reverence and honor enter your divine temple. Take care of you. You are luminous.” These words borrowed from “Holistic Healers” are so profound. READ MORE

What do you think about Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill? Well let’s explore this ideal together. In one way It makes me say, yea! But in a another way, it makes me think why now. Where is it coming from? What is the purpose for it! What are they saying this is supposed to mean. Is it going to bring recognition to Harriet Tubman in all that she did? Or is it suppose to bring attention to slavery? Let us work through this.
