I’m glad to be back from a long sabbatical and offered to pick up writing my favorite column. Yea, I know some of the people heard what happened to me over the hot month of July. However, I received your love and support at the recent GLCCB Town Hall last month that many of you in the community attended. I truly appreciated it. I learned to forgive those who tried to defame my character and decided to move towards becoming a community builder, rather than a community separatist. We need healing in the community and love — after all we are the true rainbow coalition! To quote Maya Angelou: “Rainbows are people whose lives are bright shining examples for others.” This is a powerful message to me. It reflects the true meaning of being a shining example for our young people and elderly community whose shoulders we all stand on. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts — writing and journalism is a healing process.
Just one more thought. I’m a big fan of The Ellen Show. At the end each show, she ends by reminding her viewers to be kind to one another. That sticks with me. You never know how your kindness may change someone. And remember, love is for everyone!
Have a great and prosperous holiday season.
