Kids These Days: Courageous Conversations By Teens About Teens.

6/21/2021
It is what it is, but it is not what it seems to be. During this past season, perhaps some of you have felt mental and emotional uncertainty and unrest. It seems that everything that could be shaken was shaking, where noise, angry noise, appears to be drowning out laughter and love. I am describing what I felt from an adult perspective, someone who has known challenge and loss and fear, and somehow with the help of faith and time and supportive friends, I recovered, I healed. I was blessed....

Voices from the Future. Meet the Praise Warriors and Script Hop 101!

6/6/2021
The recent challenging cultural and societal circumstances have forced my heart to turn to our future and ask the question, “What About the Children…and those who love them”. The children are both our future and our now. What they see us do, what they hear us say, shapes who they become. To give the question a platform, Frankly Speaking, has been highlighting stories where young people speak for themselves through their testimonies, their gifts, conversations with peers, siblings, and...

5/25/2021
The challenge for all of us today is to be a lighthouse in the next generation's lives. In this season of intense uncertainty and unrest, be on the lookout for lost souls. Be alert to those who may be in need and have nowhere to go or no way to get there. Be sensitive to children who find themselves left out, leftover, or left behind. Be a lighthouse to a child. Show children protection and guidance. You don’t have to say much; just let the child know you are there should the need arise....

Women’s History Month Celebrates the Fact That Truth is of No Color

3/19/2021
“The 19th Amendment had first been introduced in Congress in 1871. But Congress’ unwillingness to pass it meant women could only vote in states that had passed woman’s suffrage laws. By 1919 that had come to include 27 states, but not New Hampshire. Granite state women would have to wait for the state of Tennessee to become the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment before they could vote for President in 1920.”[1]And there is so much more to do! Join me in a fascinating, energizing,...

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

3/17/2021
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 100th 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...

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Moving Forward with Patricia Borowski District 7610 Governor Elect

3/16/2021
Patricia is a symbol of Rotary’s transforming commitment to diversity and inclusion. Women join the senior leadership ranks. It has been a process, not an event. Consider some of the journey's highlights: 1987 On 4 May, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Rotary clubs may not exclude women from membership on the basis of gender. Rotary issues a policy statement that any Rotary club in the United States can admit qualified women into membership. Sylvia Whitlock, of the Rotary Club of Duarte,...

In 1930, Rotary Founder Paul Harris said, "The world is a changing place, and Rotary MUST change with it." And it has. Maya Angelou said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you cannot change it, change your attitude.” And we have. Frances Hesselbein said, "Culture does not change because we desire to change it. Culture changes when the organization is transformed – the Culture reflects the realities of people working together every day.” And it has. Change is an external alteration....

"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...

It does not serve you or the world for you to behave as if you are powerless. You can think yourself into and out of any situation with which you are confronted. You have the ability to speak for yourself. You can defend yourself! Promote yourself. Encourage yourself. Teach yourself! Correct yourself....

In the decades that followed, mayors of cities across the country began issuing yearly proclamations recognizing Negro History Week. 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. President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History...
