Greetings On-Line Family:

 

This past Tuesday, November 11th, 2008, America paid tribute to its veterans.  

 

We honor and respect those who are living and also those who gave up their lives while serving this great country - The United States of America.   

Millions are currently serving, and we at Arious honor these brave men and women for their contributions, their dedication and loyalty.  They have indeed made some ultimate sacrifices to benefit many.  Certainly, they have courageously committed to working towards extending freedom and advancing peace to many around the world; and for which they are greatly respected and appreciated.

Veterans day to me is very solemn.  So even though we honor these great men and women, I am deeply saddened by the human cost of the wars they serve in, especially these wars on terror.  To date, approximately 4,197 lives have been lost in the Iraq war, and hundreds more in the Afghanistan war.   As for the injured, there is approximately 30,793 plus, which is very painful to absorb.  I find myself often thinking about the families of those who are in foreign lands serving in these wars on terror, and I'm sure the worrying about their safety by their loved ones must be maddening.

However, continuing on with the positive side of this issue, I must say once again we truly thank these brave men and women for their dedicated service.

Incidentally, Veterans Day cannot be recognized without mentioning the "Buffalo Soldiers".   The details below are courtesy of www.buffalosoldiers.com.

"Buffalo Soldiers" were African-Americans who were former slaves, freemen and Civil War Soldiers who fought in military conflicts since colonial days.  

They participated in many military operations such as: The Spanish American War, the Philippine Insurrection,; The Mexican Expedition, World War I, World War II and the Korean Police Action.  Buffalo Soldiers are known for the unsurpassed courage and patriotism they fought with distinction an all of this country's military engagements.  

However, some of their most notable contributions and sacrifices came during the Civil War. During that conflict, more than 180,000  African-Americans wore the Union Army blue. Another 30,000 served in the Navy, and 200,000 served as workers on labor, engineering, hospital and other military support projects. More than 33,000 of these gallant soldiers gave their lives for the sake of freedom and their country.

For Additional Details click the following link: http://www.buffalosoldiers.com or http://www.buffalosoldier.net/ 0r http://www.buffalosoldiermuseum.com/

The story of the name "Buffalo Soldiers" is as follows: 

"Throughout the era of the Indian Wars, approximately twenty percent of the U.S. Cavalry troopers were Black, and they fought over 177 engagements. The combat prowess, bravery, tenaciousness, and looks on the battlefield, inspired the Indians to call them "Buffalo Soldiers." Many Indians believe the name symbolized the Native American's  respect for the Buffalo Soldiers' bravery and valor.   Buffalo Soldiers, down through the years, have worn the name with pride."

 

 

As I did some research, I came across some "Buffalo Soldiers" that I hope you would find interesting, as I have.  Click on the following link to learn about 9 men "Buffalo Soldiers" who served in the Army's Italian Campaign in World War II.  http://www.loc.gov/vets/stories/ex-war-buffalosoldiers.htmlThey are: sham G. Genton; William C. Gryant, Elvin V. Davidson, John C. Foster Jr., Luther E. Hall, Robert P. Madison, A. William Perry, Rothacker C. Sith and Roscoe T. Spann.

 

Victory...Victory...Victory!

President Elect 

Barack Hussein Obama

The 44th President of the United States of America

 

Victory...Victory...Victory!

Quietly, many of us are still celebrating the victorious milestone that was reached by President Elect Barack Hussein Obama last week Tuesday, November 4, 2008.  Being elected the First African-American President of the United States of America is historical and awesome.  

As historical as this is, I understand many are having an awful time accepting this important fact across the country.  obviously, race is still a major factor in this nation, which is horrifying.  Nonetheless, over the past week we went back to our daily routine and tuned into the conservative talk radio shows.  Sure enough they were back at bashing President Elect Obama, his wife, his family and his team.  This irked me immensely, and what made me even sicker was when one of the idiot talk show hosts while talking about Michelle Obama acted as if he was about to vomit by the mention of her name.  So hateful huh?  I was extremely appalled, but had to "sock it up" and accept the fact that race continues to rule in this nation.  Undoubtedly, it will be a difficult road ahead for President Obama, not only with the mess he inherits, but with the hateful people who dislike him because of his race.  [With this in mind we must certainly keep President Obama and his family in our prayers always.]  

Additionally, I heard some black talk show hosts making some crazy statements against the newly elected President which was extremely disturbing.  This had me thinking about the "crab in the barrel" mentality we have exhibited throughout time, and how much it's beginning to show it's nasty head already - only a few days after President Elected Obama's winning.  

After "letting off some steam" to my colleague Ms. Gerri, and expressed my fears and disappointments, she spent some time discussing this serious issue with me and succeeded with reassuring me that everything will be fine!  Soon after Ms Gerri departed my office, she e-mailed me the following statement, which I feel sums up what needs to be done.  "Now that we have arrived to this era in history, we must all remember to show the same respect to Barack Obama, our new president, as we have our past presidents.  Just remember, throughout many of our past presidents’ trials and tribulations we continued to serve them well.  We should at least show President Obama the same support, especially with all of the many new tasks that await him; we must advocate together not to become the Achilles’ heel in this new administration by dissecting every word or action.  Most importantly, we must be mindful that he was supported and elected by ALL cultures and races."

Additionally, we must realize that President Elect Obama owes us nothing!  Personally, I feel he has already done a lot by becoming the 44th President of the United States.  He showed me, and many across the country especially our children and grand children that  "Yes...we can do it - "Yes, we certainly can achieve all we aspire!" 

I feel he may not be able to do a lot to directly changed our lives.  However, he will indeed be able to help overall with some things getting better on a whole, but it's truly up to us to (1) stop pulling one another down, (2) stop losing out in the economic race; (3) our youths stop with the taking of each other's lives; (4) stop with us being incarcerated; etc.  We must begin to UNITE, RESPECT AND LOVE each other; and most importantly, for every one of us that achieve success we must learn to help 10 others achieve what we have achieved.  Power will positively be achieved this way...economic power and our voices will be ever louder and heard clearer. 

As I think back to the Million Man March I fondly recall the "Million Man Pledge" that black men were to use on a daily basis to help bring change in their lives.  It may be something we need to begin to say as a people to help with bringing change in our immediate lives.  I have added it below. so check it out.

Million Man Pledge

I pledge that from this day forward I will strive to love my brother as I love myself. 

I from this day forward will strive to improve myself spiritually, morally, mentally, socially, politically, and economically for the benefit of myself, my family, and my people. 

I pledge that I will strive to build business, build houses, build hospitals, build factories, and then to enter international trade for the good of myself, my family, and my people. 

I pledge that from this day forward I will never raise my hand with a knife or a gun to beat, cut, or shoot any member of my family or any human being, except in self-defense.

I pledge from this day forward I will never abuse my wife [husband] by striking her [him], disrespecting her [him] for she [he] is the mother [father] of my children and the producer of my future. 

I pledge that from this day forward I will never engage in the abuse of children, little boys, or little girls for sexual gratification. But I will let them grow in peace to be strong men and women for the future of our people. I will never again use the B word to describe my female, but particularly my own Black sister.

I pledge from this day forward that I will not poison my body with drugs or that which is destructive to my health and my well being. 

I pledge from this day forward, I will support Black newspapers, Black radio, Black television. I will support Black artists, who clean up their acts to show respect for themselves and respect for their people, and respect for the ears of the human family.

I will do all of this so help me God.

  Mariam Makeba the "Mama Africa"

Many around the world is mourning the death of the legendary singer Mariam Makeba "Mama Africa" on Monday, November 10th, 2008.  Ms. Makeba died at the age of 76 of a heart attack directly after leaving the stage in Italy!  Photographer by Jurgen Schadeberg

Ms.  Makeba, was born in Johannesburg on March 4, 1932, and was one of Africa's best known singers.  She was well known for her hits "Pata Pata" and "The Click Song".  In her dazzling career, Ms. Makeba performed with musical legends from around the world; jazz maestros Nina Simone and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as Harry Belafonte, Paul Simon, and she even sang for world leaders such as John F. Kennedy and Nelson Mandela.  

Ms. Mekeba was known for speaking out about the abuses of apartheid, and expressed this through her music.  Her distinctive style which was a combination of jazz, folk and South African township rhythms, eventually got her banned from South Africa for 3 decades.  The South African white regime revoked Makeba's citizenship in 1960 and even refused to let her return for her mother's funeral. The singer spent these three decades in exile, living in the United States, Guinea and Europe.

In 1960 Ms. Makeba married black power activist Stokely Carmichael, later known as Kwame ture and moved to Guinea.  In 1962, due to her close relationship with Harry Belafonte she performed for President Kennedy at his birthday party.  In 1963, she appeared before the U.N. Special Committee on Apartheid to call for an international boycott of South Africa, which led to the South African Government to ban her records.  In 1966, Ms. Makeba along with her good friend Harry Belfonte received a Grammy Award for Best Folk Recording for "An Evening With Belafonte/Makeba" which dealt with the political plight of black South Africans under apartheid.  Ms. Mekeba also worked with Simone and Gillespie, and in 1987 appeared with Paul Simon at his "Graceland" concert in Zimbabwe.  In 1990 Ms. Makeba was invited back to South Africa by Mandela shortly after his release from prison.

Ms. Makeba continued singing and performing all across the world for all these years, and in 2005 announced her retirement, but despite a series of farewell concerts she never stopped performing. When she turned 75 last year, she said she would sing for as long as possible.

Ms. Makeba is survived by her grandchildren, Nelson Lumumba Lee and Zenzi Monique Lee, and her great-grandchildren Lindelani, Ayanda and Kwame. Her funeral will be held in South Africa  To the family, friends and fans our sincerest condolences are sent to you.  May the fond memories of Ms. Makeba forever live on within your soul.  She indeed left a legacy of music behind.
