The Voice of the Black Community

Good editorial Beau. It is so refreshing to know that someone of your generation appreciates the struggles that "OUR forefathers" encountered. It is very refreshing as well to know that the struggles of the 60's Civil Rights movement are no longer the struggles of todays Civil Rights movements- we have made great strides. Those battles that were won on Our , Your behalf were well fought. Now with that said, I am the parent of a rising senior at Mallard Creek. I want to admonish, encourage as well as challenge you to remember and pay homage to those past struggles and strides in a different way. Being the product or of the generation directly to benefit of those great strides- We were the ones to be the recipents of both the Love and Pride the previous generation bestowed on their Future- Somewhere we lost the Pride and Love for our Future. Somewhere when we gained the right to be educated not only the same way but in the same place, we lost our comradship- thus making us in a sense, every man for himself. While we have made great strides for our own individual success, what have we done for our own right to exist as a people in society as ourselves. I admonish you and my own children to put The Love and Pride back into US as well as others- The Good Book tells us to Love your neighbor as yourself- If we don't Love and Respect Ourselves first, we have no real love for others-I challenge your generation with the responsibility to Love and Respect each other's accomplishments, failures, weaknesses-to make them and Us strong. In our struggle to become Equal we forgot to strenghten our weak thus weakening our Ranks. When you endeavor to achieve your full potential, remember not so much your struggle- you may not have had one, but remember the struggle and why there was a struggle--The FUTURE, Yours- Mine, OURS. Be Blessed and Prosperous my young friend and always give OUR youth your respect, love and pride.

Way to go Beau! It's good to see that some of our young people actually appreciate the sacrafices that have been made for them. Don't allow anyone discourage you from being a positive role model.
