Legend Has It!
From Reggie Hill, M. Ed. –
Great Day, Good People. Blessings to you!
While there exists a plethora of matters in life which negatively influence human demeanor, many would argue that nothing sets in worse than uncertainty. The idea of not having enough. The possibility of an inconvenient outcome. The potential loss of something valuable. The power of worry is yet defined with a singular impact of any kind.
Scripture tells us, Philippians 4:6 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
As we look into a week designated for Thanksgiving in America, I consider it to be quite important for us to examine what we deem notable and worthwhile. As well, I find it imperative to observe the necessity for improvement in life quality—especially amongst those who people who ensure the least desired conditions of a “free society”.
Mobile, Alabama is rich in history. Not only is the Port City, Louisiana’s former Capitol City… Mobile is the first City in Alabama. Earlier this evening, CBS (on 60 Minutes) shared remnants to one of Mobile’s most quietly kept stories—Africatown!
Stories passed down insist that the last slave ship to enter the United States “anchored down” in the Azalea City. The descendants of those captives and many other prominent families settled the community known today as Plateau.
Plateau is home to the original public school for Blacks in Alabama (Mobile County Training School) and is the only surviving neighborhood formed by natives of Africa.
I often imagine what if this Country actually lived up to its quest for liberty. I have been very reserved in how I articulate what I understand regarding our purpose of existence. I can’t afford to limit the consequential conversation any longer. Not because of my own benefit… but because of the unimagined inconvenience my expressive isolation impressions upon the Public…
Grant me grace as I un-layer this for everyone. Find a means to spread empathy. Keep contributing your amazing. The world needs you.
