  Susan Mangatal -   susan@ariousentertainment.us 

Greetings On-Line Family:

This past weekend even though it was one of the most enjoyable (so far this summer) with all the exciting outdoor activities, festivals and concerts we attended, it came to a close for us in sorrow.  Sorrow..."the passing" of a loved one, why is it that we all must go through this?  The only answer that everyone seems to come up with is: "it's a part of life."  However, to me it's a part of life we all can do without!!!

A few years ago when we lost the dad of my husband Todd, it was a life-changing experience and very powerful, not to mention extremely overwhelming for our "Mangatal" family.  It took quite some time to come to terms with the drastic lost and to manage our lives back on to the road of normalcy.  In our situation, actually Todd's situation, he now had to be the head of our "Mangatal" family and to be strong for everyone, providing aid, insight, comfort and most importantly strength.  

Death...bereavement...sorrow....grief - all are very powerful, and very difficult to deal with.  The question is how do we deal with it?  In my readings I found that (1) people are encouraged to help even though they may feel they may make things worst, it's better to do something than nothing, and don't be afraid to show that you careDuring our time of loss we cherished every word of sympathy, every expression of love that was demonstrated to us, and every kind gesture that came our way.  With these small things we didn't feel entirely alone during this difficult time.  (2) people are encouraged to not stifle the emotions of those who are in sorrow.  Even though our family tried to be strong and tried not to be emotional in public, many times alone I/we  found ourselves breaking down in private.  We indeed found it better to just let it all out; found that it was OK to shed a tear or two, found that it was OK to be angry and question why.  I personally found it to be extremely healing when I expressed my emotions freely.  (3) "Healing is built on through perseverance, support and understanding". The healing process for us was not easy, but we managed.  Funny, at the time we didn't think we would, but as time passed we all just seemed to understand and except our loss, and was able to manage and deal with it.  Most importantly, (4) Growth and healing comes in learning to enjoy memories.  This is an absolute true statement, now we look back and fondly talk about all the many things that transpired in our lives with our beloved "Mano".

  During this past week, we have endured some of these same feelings, because we lost Todd's grandfather ("Da Da Ole" - a nickname Todd gave his grandfather William E. Bell, Jr. as a little boy).  "Da Da Ole" or "WEB" as many of the adults in our family called him, was a healthy, prosperous, and warm man.  A brave and strong soldier, father, husband, grandfather, great-grandfather who lived a very full life.  

As this week passed Todd talked about "Da Da Ole's" prosperous business, and about some of the issues with the family.  Of course, with every family, there is bound to be problems from time to time.   He talked about the problems Da Da Ole's children experienced throughout their childhood and along their way to adulthood, but most of all he remembered how strong his grandfather was throughout his life.  

William E. Bell, Jr. indeed left his mark on this earth, in our hearts and in our minds.  He will be missed and will always be remembered.  Most importantly, we must celebrate his life because we know he absolutely lived it to the fullest!!!  To the entire family of William E. Bell, Jr. as we lay him to rest we must pay tribute to him and allow the memories he left behind comfort us through this difficult time.

 

  Back to the lighter side of things, the Caribbean Carnival in Baltimore, we DID get to see (unlike DC's).  There were a handful" of small "mas" bands who participated in the parade that mainly came from/and participated in the DCs Carnival.  However, I'm glad to say we did see the entire parade!!!

 

   As for the  "Harbor View Steel drum Festival" presented by Baltimore Education and Cultural Institute, Inc. (), which took place all last weekend.  I understand this festival was nice (per reports from attendees).  I was told there were a few glitches, that certainly can be fixed next year, but overall it was nice.  We did pass through this event for a short time, but couldn't stay because of various other commitments.  Congrats to BECI, Inc. on their success!  To see some highlights of this event and to check out the performances of many steel bands that participated in this exciting event CLICK HERE to log on to "When Steel Talks, Everyone Listens" site to read the exciting article and to view the video they produced.  (Click on the white arrow to launch video once you are on the page.)   Check out the photos that was captured by When Steel Talks on this page as well.  For more details and to Support Baltimore Education and Cultural Institute, Inc. call: 443-854-2920, 443-722-1439, and  443-271-0406 or log on to their site: www.beci-inc.org.

This Week In History

This week in History - July 17th-July 23rd.  Last week I shared some important information about some interesting facts about American History, and I thank you for sending me some of your thought provoking comments.  Below you will find I have listed several more historic incidents that took place during this week in history.  Please take the time to read and become educated.   Click on to the titles listed below to learn everything about these important issues.

  The Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Volunteers - July 18, 1863.  (Courtesy of US-CivilWar.com).  The all black unit (one of the first) infantry regiment of the United States Armed forces who fought for the Union Army in the Civil War.  This was depicted in the 1989 film "Glory".  The Sergeant of this unit William H. Carney became the first African-American to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor for bravery under fire.  For additional reading click here: http://battleofolustee.org/54th_mass_inf.html  (Courtesy of  Battle of Olustee.)

  The Fourteenth Amendment Ratified - July 21, 1868.  (Courtesy of www.nps.gov, and created by Martin Luther King, Jr. Nat'l Historic Site Inter. Staff).  The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States was ratified on this date, which granted citizenship to any person born or naturalized in the United States. Ratification was completed on July 9, 1868.  However, Georgia was the last state who subsequently ratified the amendment on July 21, 1868 after rejecting it in 1866).

  The National Association of Colored Women - Formed July 21, 1896.  (Courtesy of African-Americans.com).  To read about the First President "Mary Church Terrell" click here: http://www.jstor.org/pss/2717758 courtesy of Beverly W. Jones, and for additional or http://gos.sbc.edu/t/terrellmary.html   For details or quotes CLICK HERE! 

  Washington DC Riots - "The Red Summer" Riots - July 19-23, 1919 -  This summer was filled with a racial frenzy of clashes, massacres, and lynchings bestowed upon blacks, all initiated and committed by whites throughout the North and the South.  Strangely, I found no actual details on these 5 days of rioting that took place in Washington DC during the deadliest race wars in American History, as I did with the Gregg and Longview Counties riots that I shared with you last week.  However, as I kept searching and reading I discovered 6 were killed and 150 were wounded.  If you find any details on this, please feel free to pass it on to me.  CLICK HERE to read a few words on the riots of 1919 

*  This week in politics I am in disbelief because it was reported that The Bush Administration decided to have talks with Iran.  I simply cannot believe they intend to talk to the so-called enemy.  

Remember only a few months ago, Senator and "presumptive" Democratic Nominee Barack Obama said he was willing to meet unconditionally with foreign leaders the United States don't get along with, including Iran, and pledge to negotiate with them at any level; he was "slammed" and criticized.  Remember he stated in a debate during the primary season: "It's important for the United States not to just talk to its friends, but also to talk to its enemies as well.  In fact, that's where diplomacy makes the biggest difference", he was called inexperienced, an appeaser, naive, and other worst things.  Actually, Senator McCain's campaign through its spokesman Tucker Bounds responded to Obama's remarks by stating "it would be a wonderful thing if we lived in a world where we don't have enemies.  But that is not the world we live in, and until Senator Obama understands that, the American people have every reason to doubt whether he has the strength, judgment and determination to keep us safe."   

I think Senator Obama needs an apology...The Bush Administration actually think Senator Obama's belief and statement on foreign policy was right, and is following his lead in showing proper diplomacy.  The Bush Administration actually has taken a 180 degree turn and has broken its policy by engaging in talks with Iran.   Unbelievable!!!  

Yes, it was announced a few days ago that William Burns will meet with Iranian diplomat Saeed Jalili this week during negotiations between Iran and diplomats from the European Union.  This is incredible.  CLICK HERE to read more about this issue entitled "America Envoy to Join Iran Talks" written by Glen Kessler-Wash. Post Staff Writer and published in the Washington Post 7/16/08; or CLICK HERE to read The Huffington Post article written by Matthew Lee and published 7/16/08.
