IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT ANOTHER YEAR HAS COME AND GONE RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES! But here we are saying good-bye to 2009 and ushering in 2010 in what many of us hope will be better than the year prior. As I write this blog, the song “Teach Me” from Musiq Soulchild was played during the Best of The Tom Joyner Morning Show, and it’s one lyric of the song that stands out the most in my mind…Teach Me How To Love….something that I believe this world is so sorely lacking in the latter half of this decade! Yes call me crazy and overly sentimental, but what the world needs is LOVE and much more that what we’ve expressed to one another as of late. Sadly everytime I listen to the news I watch stories of death and pure hatred between countries or stories of young people who never will have the chance to be productive citizens or a future President of the United States because their lives were tragically cut short at the hands of an adult who molested or sodomized them and even kills not just the body but the spirit!! And I know that death is imminent will all of us, but can we show a little more love and respect and kindness going into a new year…in fact let’s add on to some of the good things that took place before 2009 comes to an end…like having our first(and hopefully not our last) President of Color! So in closing I ask, “What’s in store for you as a new year is about to begin..I’m just saying!!!!
