Greetings On-Line Family from Susan Mangatal 

and all of us at Arious - susan@ariousentertainment.us

Black History Month. - A time to celebrate, acknowledge, honor and memorialize our President, our leaders, inventors, discoverers, athletics, and even entertainers, business owners and politicians who have made exceptional accomplishments and contributions throughout our history.

Even though black history month is coming to an end, it's truly not THE END; because in each month for the next 4 years we will continue celebrating Black History due to our fantastic President Barack H. Obama - The First African American President of the United States.  We must honor President Barack Obama for constantly making history.  February 24, 2009 - Tuesday night's State of the Union Address was his first and it was historic, impressive and superb.  

Our President addressed a Joint Session of Congress and the entire Nation focusing specifically on the economy, and he pretty much had answers to many of our questions.  The content of his speech helped some of us to somewhat overcome our fears about what have been taking place with this awful downward spiral that many of us in America have been experiencing due to the awful recession.

Many had been very critical about what he would say to the nation, and what he would share with us regarding fixing the devastating and deteriorating economy, forgetting that he inherited this  poor economic problem (which was created and left to him by the previous President - George Bush and his Administration.)  Despite their criticisms he appeared to be poised, confident, relaxed , and he seemed to address everyone individually and very optimistically with some serious plans about how he intends to fix things with his newly approved Stimulus Package/Plan. 

I actually felt he didn't say anything much different from what he has been saying since he's been sworn into office, or even before.  However, he did expound on a few issues making them clear and a lot more understandable.  Of course, I cringed when he admitted the banking system will need more money, but he further explaining that it is crucial for the country's banks to start lending again.  Nevertheless, I feel together we must "do what we have to do" for the country to become financially stable again, and for the economy to recover and become secure; including each and everyone of us who are suffering tremendously.

It was wonderful that President Obama acknowledge and highlighted ordinary citizens in his speech. Leonard Abess Jr., Ty-Sheoma Bethea, and the entire community of Greensburg, Kansas, who are examples of "anything but ordinary" citizens who have done what they could to give back in these trying times.  The following were his words: 

"I think about Leonard Abess, the bank president from Miami who reportedly cashed out of his company, took a $60 million bonus, and gave it out to all 399 people who worked for him, plus another 72 who used to work for him. He didn't tell anyone, but when the local newspaper found out, he simply said, "I knew some of these people since I was seven years old. I didn't feel right getting the money myself."

I think about Greensburg, Kan., a town that was completely destroyed by a tornado, but is being rebuilt by its residents as a global example of how clean energy can power an entire community -- how it can bring jobs and businesses to a place where piles of bricks and rubble once lay. "The tragedy was terrible," said one of the men who helped them rebuild. "But the folks here know that it also provided an incredible opportunity."

And I think about Ty-Sheoma Bethea, the young girl from that school I visited in Dillon, S.C. -- a place where the ceilings leak, the paint peels off the walls, and they have to stop teaching six times a day because the train barrels by their classroom. She has been told that her school is hopeless, but the other day after class she went to the public library and typed up a letter to the people sitting in this room. She even asked her principal for the money to buy a stamp. The letter asks us for help, and says, "We are just students trying to become lawyers, doctors, congressmen like yourself and one day president, so we can make a change to not just the state of South Carolina but also the world. We are not quitters."  

Ty'sheoma Bethea, the 8th grader who wrote a letter imploring Congress to help her school is being hugged by First Lady Michelle Obama.  The following is some of what Ty'sheoma wrote in her letter: "People are starting to see my school as an hopeless, uneducated school which we are not. We finally want to prove to the world that we have an chance in life just like other schools and we can feel good about what we are doing because of the conditions we are in now we can not succeed in anything."

"The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere.  But while our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken; though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this:  We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before."

This week for Black History we honor Mrs. Susan E. Rice - U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations

Susan Elizabeth Rice, the first African-American to hold the post of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and is also America's 3rd Woman to hold this post.  Mrs. Rice who is 44 years of age is a native Washingtonian, and she is the daughter of Dr. Emmett J. Rice, who is an Economics Professor at Cornell University and a former governor of the Federal Reserve System, and Lois Dickson Fitt who is an academic scholar whose parents were born in Jamaica.  Mrs. Rice was raised in a household that stressed education and public affairs knowledge.

Mrs. Rice attended the prestigious National Cathedral School, an all-girls academy in Washington DC, where she played three sports, was president of the student council and class valedictorian.  Mrs. Rice went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in history in 1986 at Stanford University, where she received a Truman Scholarship.  She was elected to Phi Beta Kappa .  Mrs. Rice went on to earn a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University where she received her Master's Degree and wrote a doctoral dissertation on the transformation of white-ruled Rhodesia into black-ruled Zimbabwe. While a college student, she launched a divestment effort to protest South African apartheid. After earning her Ph.D. at age 25, she briefly worked as a consultant for McKinsey & Company.

In her mid-20s, she worked as a foreign policy advisor to Michael Dukakis 1988 presidential campaign.   In 1993, she joined the staff of the National Security Council in the Clinton Administration as Assistant Secretary for African Affairs, focusing first on peacekeeping and then on African Affairs.  In this position she was Clinton's top Africa diplomat when al Qaeda bombed the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, which led to her first middle-of-the-night official phone call ó from Kenya's Ambassador alerting her to the attacks. Additionally, in this position she also dealt with issues related to the 1994 Rwandan genocide, including the President's widely criticized decision not to intervene.  In 1995, she was appointed the NSA's lead Africa expert.  She later moved to the State Department in 1997, watching over issues and events in Africa.  

After leaving Government at the end of the Clinton Administration, Mrs. Rice became managing director at Intellibridge, a firm providing analysis on International matters.  In 2002, Mrs. Rice signed on as a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute.  In 2004, she worked for John Kerry's Presidential campaign

Two years ago she was a senior foreign policy advisor to the Obama campaign.  On November 5, 2008, Mrs. Rice was named to the Advisory board of the Obama-Biden Transition Project, and on December 1, 2008, she was nominated by President-Elect Obama to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations - a position which President Obama upgraded to cabinet level.  Mrs. Rice was confirmed by Congress on January 22, 2009, making her the first African-American woman U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

Mrs. Rice is married to Canadian journalist Ian Cameron, executive producer of ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos. They met in college when she was a freshman while he was a senior, and are the parents of two children.

Continue celebrating Black History throughout the year.  Please don't stop because February is coming to a close.  We must always celebrate the great, historical accomplishments of African-Americans!

Happy Birthday Todd!!!!!



Sometimes you donít appreciate peopleís real worth until they are gone, and you sit back and look at the things they have done in their short time on this earth and realize they really had the potential to do great things.  With this being said, we got word that memorial celebrations will be held for our late friend, actor entertainer-dancehall artist, and producer Mr. Alton Ashman "Rraw Dawg" in Jamaica.   See the flyer below for details or log on to: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewProfile&friendID=117454250
