"Georgia changed my way of thinking about truth... You gave me the reason, and the root... Taught me, in order to be a man... I needed to see a man... Gave me the spiritual guidance I so needed, and pleaded that I didn't repeat the cycles that I had seen repeated... I want to thank you for the lessons, and blessing that you bestowed upon me... I hope that I can someday be the man you want me to be... I'm on my way... Bottom dollar you can bet... Because God is not done with me yet..." Eric Braylock
In relationships, both men and women must be mutually respected, and they both must be seen as a value to the relationship. There is no big "I" and little "you." This value transcends into respect and consideration needed to support a healthy relationship. Mutual respect is the foundation for honesty, trust, and meaningful communication. In order for relationships to remain healthy, both the man and the women must be equally respected and appreciated.
Social change begins with the exercise of leadership. Throughout the passage of history, there have been leaders who have played a key role in promoting justice and leveraging their influence to foster change. They have modeled the way for future generations to achieve a vision of justice and freedom for all. We can learn from their example how to take a stand in the face of injustice and chart a new course for the future. These leaders have shown us how to be courageous despite the obstacles set before us. They remind us that we must lead social change since we are indebted to future generations to leave the world in a better place than when we found it.
Motivational Moments: Take the time to appreciate life

Have you ever taken the time to just appreciate the things that you have been blessed with? I heard someone say once that every morning they wake up and spend time meditating on everything that God has blessed them with. They don't just talk about their home or their cars, but they say thank you for everything. And I do mean "EVERYTHING!"
Motivational Moments: Think about your life's journey

Today I spent time talking to an old friend about some of the choices that we have made in our lives. We have been friends since we were three and four, and have never lost contact with each other. She lives in another state, but that doesn't stop us from talking at least three times a week. Lately we have been talking about our life's journey and all of the lessons we've learned along the way, some for good and some for bad. But we both agree that life has basically been good to us. And we are very appreciative of what we have been blessed with and where we are in our lives.
