Dearest On-Line Family and Friends: Greetings to all of you!

Chilling is all it has been about these past few days!  And why?  Simply, due to the intensity of a new perspective on life! 

LIFE?  Of course, we all know what life is!  However, to many of us the TIME we spend on building a comfortable and successful life is absolutely crucial.  We find that our TIME is typically dominated in various ways: if it’s not work consuming a huge portion of it; it’s the maintaining of our living expenses, the worry of our health, or the building and keeping stable our family and even our love life.  And unfortunately the pressures of it all goes on and on. 

Generally, because of this; we somehow miss the greatness of ourselves…the special person that we are.  Moreover, we develop a misunderstanding about us, and what we have done.  And most importantly, we forget about all our accomplishments and even challenges; which results in a serious lack of appreciation of oneself. 

Odd isn’t it?  Due to the deficiency of our time we are unable to sit back and reflect on everything on a regular basis; especially the good and most significant thing we should be aware of…OUR SELF ~~~ OUR WORTH .

Hum, this observation hit me “like a ton of bricks” recently while talking to someone who I can easily call a friend; [a friend I rarely have artificial dialogue with] who phoned me to share her experiences over this past weekend and to discuss things that are currently transpiring in our community.  After laughing, talking and sharing or experiences for a bit I found the conversation had moved into a more serious tone, and we somehow began to share many of our accomplishments; which I normally don’t do.  However, something I didn’t expect struck me during our conversation, and "Ms. C C" afforded me the special opportunity to reflect on my entire life thus far. [Gosh~~~LOL, and boy did I share!!!]  I totally surprised myself and couldn’t believe so much was “bottled up inside me.”  I couldn’t believe how much the outside world and people have been “beating me up” and “screwing around” with me mentally; resulting in me not recognizing my worth and all the good I/we have done.  I so needed to hear it~~~to hear OUT LOUD all what my husband Todd and I had created, developed and accomplished.  Not only what we have accomplished in recent years, but also what we have accomplished throughout our lifetime thus far; and "Ms. C C" helped me achieved this.  In reality, she helped me to truly RECOGNIZE MY WORTH.  Consequently, helping me to feel quite liberated mentally; and most importantly helping me to find a new perspective on life. THANK YOU "MS. C C"!!!

After this experience I clearly saw the importance of acknowledging one’s worth; and wondered if we have taken into account how important it is for us to clearly see the greatness of ourselves, and recognizing how special a person we are.  Perhaps, if you take the time to reflect on you and your accomplishments as well as your challenges; you too will see how important you are…you too will RECOGNIZE YOUR WORTH!  Below is a lovely poem by an unknown author.  Please read and enjoy! 

                 YOU ARE WORTHY

You are worthy of reaching for the greatest accomplishments…

And you are worthy of achieving them, no matter what other people think of you, no matter what you have done up to this point in life.

You are worthy of the best.

You are unique, you are special.

You are creative and effective.

You have much value to offer, regardless of what anyone has told you.

And no one can express that value but you.

You are the person who deserves to live your dream.

You are the only one who has what it takes to reach that dream.

If you can see it, if you can imagine it, if you can dream it, you are worthy of reaching it.

And it is possible.

No one will hand it to you.

In fact, you'll strive day and night to reach it.

When you give the best you have, when you refuse to be stopped by the obstacles in your way, when you do what must be done, you'll get what you deserve—a full, rich life that is like no other.

Each day, with your thoughts and actions, live up to the fact that you are the best.

This past Tuesday (August 17th) many around the world celebrated the 123rd birth date of the Powerful Honorable Marcus "Mossiah" Garvey.  Every year I have honored him by sharing with you some of my thoughts which was capture in a piece I wrote some years ago [This piece was published in The Caribbean-American Weekly, New York, 2007.]   Additionally, you will find I have shared with you a fascinating documentary on Mr. Garvey entitled "The Influence of Marcus Garvey", and it details the heroic and innovative ideas of Marcus Garvey, as well as his life's progress and achievements.  There are 5 parts to this documentary, and I have added all 5 parts below. Courtesy of Kane – The Prodigal Son “ProdSun83” and powered by YouTube.

 

 Marcus Garvey was born in St. Ann's Bay, St. Ann, Jamaica in 1887, and he was known as a black Prophet, Philosopher and an extremely influential speaker.  His vision, which he was determined to carry out was the liberation of his people.  Many believed he was a Messiah, a true Prophet, giving the prophesy of the coming of the redeemer who was going to "deliver the black man from bondage, and who had come to save a people who for centuries had been exploited by another race".  He promoted faith in the Almighty Creator of Africa and the Black race, "who created his Black sons and daughters in his own image and likeness".  

As I learned more about Garvey, it was clear to see he gave millions of Caribbean people a sense of pride and so enabling them to take their place in the world, Garvey stated "Never allow anyone to convince you of inferiority as a man.  Rise in your dignity to justify all that is noble in your manhood/womanhood as a race".  

Garvey dignified African beauty and promoted a "Back to Africa" campaign with a plan for resettlement in Liberia.  He was truly a powerful speaker and when he spoke it was electrifying, he was known to have a "silver tongue", and with this tongue and the words that came from his lips he inspired 11 million people to come into his Association -  The Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), and African Communities League (ACL).  Garvey organized the UNIA-ACL to promote a spirit of race, Love and Pride; to administer to and assist the needy; to reclaim the fallen of the race; to establish universities, colleges and secondary schools for the further education and culture of the boys and girls of the race; and to conduct a worldwide commercial and industrial intercourse (to fund a strong Negro nation.)  The motto for the UNIA- ACL was/is "One God!  One Aim!  One Destiny", the association sought to unite "all the people of African ancestry of the world into one great body to establish a county and Government absolutely their own."  He promoted a steamship company "The Black Star Steamship, Co."  that would provide transportation for blacks to return to Africa.  

Garvey traveled everywhere observing the working conditions and the living conditions of blacks throughout the region.  He visited Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Columbia,  Venezuela, London, and especially all across the West Indies; and clearly these poor conditions saddened him and made him more determined to obtain his goals.  He also witnessed in the West Indies the petty divisions that divided the islands, which he spoke about in his lectures and speeches "...You all know how the different West Indians despise each other, how the Jamaican despise the Barbadian and the Barbadian despise the Jamaican, and all the other islands hate each other.  The UNIA was founded in 1914 after my experience of travel in South America, in Central America, in all the West Indian Islands and in Europe seeing the need for greater unity amongst the black people of the World."  "Therefore, the American Negroes and the West Indian Negroes are one, and they are relics of the great African race which was brought into the Western World and kept here for 400 years".

Marcus Garvey through his plight to accomplish his goals endeavored lots of difficulties, as with every prophet throughout time.  Undoubtedly, it seemed he was loathed, criticized,  persecuted, maligned, scorned, and was even convicted (which his sentence was commuted by President Coolidge), and deported, but he stayed strong, held on to his celestial work with courage, resoluteness and strength, which enabled him to rise continually from whatever misfortunes he suffered.  He successfully built and consolidated the UNIA into an international organization, and because of his efforts by 1920 the association boasted over 1,100 branches in more than 40 countries (many located in the US which had become a base for the UNIA), he also had several branches in Central America and in the Caribbean countries.) 

Marcus Garvey was truly a good man, that gave hope to a lot of black people and the black race on a whole.  He is considered in Jamaica a hero and was proclaimed by Jamaica as its First National Hero.  After his death in 1940, he was laid to rest in London due to travel conditions during World War II, however his remains which was exhumed and taken back to Jamaica  now lies at a shrine in National Heroes Park in Jamaica.   I close my piece on Marcus Garvey with one of his famous proclamation "Look for me in the whirlwind or the storm, look for me all around you, for, with God's grace, I shall come and bring with me countless millions of black slaves who have died in America and the West Indies and the millions in Africa to aid you in the fight for liberty, Freedom and Life."

Next Saturday, August 28th, 2010, is the 47th Anniversary of the March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have A Dream" speech.  A mass rally and march will take place on this special day (Saturday, Aug. 28th) in Washington DC, and we welcome you to join us as we celebrate and reflect on this important day in history.  This rally and march is led by the Rev. Al Sharpton, President of the National Action Network; along with Benjamin Todd Jealous, NAACP President; Martin Luther King, III,  President of The Center for Nonviolent Social Change; TV and Radio Host Joe Madison; Radio Host Tom Joiner; Radio Host Warren Valentine among a host of others.  So let's get together on this special day to "Reclaim the Dream" and keep the special memory of Dr. King and his dreams alive.  Please read the official Press Release on this rally and march below!

Rev. Al Sharpton & National Action Network (NAN), along with civil rights leaders, clergy and progressive activist are to hold the "Reclaim the Dream Rally" and March on August 28, 2010 Martin Luther King, III, Ed Schultz, Marc Morial (NUL), Ben Jealous

Saturday, August 28, 2010 |  11:00 a.m. | Dunbar High School | 1301 New Jersey Avenue NW | Washington, DC | Rally and March to the King Memorial 

Forty-seven years after the historic March on Washington, Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network and leaders from his over 47 National Action Network chapters across the country, along with heads of progressive organizations, unions and clergy, will lead a mass rally and march in Washington, DC on Saturday, August 28, 2010 to RECLAIM THE DREAM.  

The rally will start at 11:00 a.m. at Dunbar High School, followed by a march to the King Memorial. Joining NAN will be a cross-section of organizations and principals including, but not limited to: National Action Network (NAN); United States Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, Martin Luther King, III,  President, Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Inc.; Ed Schultz, Television and radio show host; Tom Joyner, The Tom Joyner Morning Show & Reach Media; Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League; Benjamin Todd Jealous, President of NAACP;  Melanie L. Campbell, President of National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and Convener of the Black Women's Roundtable; representatives from Media Matters, and many other religious groups, labor unions, and organizations. While across town at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial the conservative tea party members and TV host Glenn Beck will attempt to hijack the dream, at the same time civil rights activists will convene at Dunbar High School to shed light upon key issues that have diminished the dream. 

As we prepare to mark the 47th anniversary of his "I Have a Dream" speech on this date, Glenn Beck and others are expected to push for the expansion of states' rights - the exact antithesis of the civil rights movement and Dr. King's legacy.

According to Rev. Al Sharpton and NAN, when we study the intense struggle for civil rights in this nation, we quickly - and rightfully - find ourselves analyzing the life and legacy of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  We learn of his tireless efforts to achieve equality and justice for all of humanity, as we pass on legends of sit-ins, marches and boycotts to our children. But what we as a collective sometimes forget to impress upon the next generation is the depth to which Dr. King was an advocate the position that the federal government as he knew it was the only effective tool to ensure a unified system of equality in every state.  

Today, the Tea Party and allied conservatives are trying to break that national stance on justice and, in turn, break the crux of what the civil rights movement symbolized and what Dr. King fought and literally died for. No one day was more important than that day forty-seven years ago when we stood still and heard the dream eloquently spoken by Dr. King. Event participants will Reclaim the Dream on Saturday, August 28th 2010

Greetings from the front of Harmony and Love. Today's message is entitled;
 
Thoughts and Thinkers.
 
All battles originate in thought, and is the conflict between the observer and the observed. The observer and the observed however, are the same. Separation comes only through the action of the observer; and therefore the observer (himself or herself) is the action which divides life into the thing observed, and someone separate from it.
 
There can be no thought without a thinker, and no thinker without a thought.
The two therefore, are really one, but we must go beyond the wall of time and memory, so that thoughts may come to an end, and only in this action will thought cease to breed division.
 
To personalize this example let me use some of my own experiences.
I must be the peace that I want to experience.
I must be the Love I want to receive.
I observe, I label and I conclude.
I react, I remember and I predict in order to support my observation, based only on thought.
I can observe. I can think differently. I can react from compassion, I can forgive and see the humor of the situation, thereby freeing myself from any negative judgments.
I am the observer and the observed.
I am the cause of all my conflicts.
I am the solution to all my problems.
I am the means beyond thoughts, and beyond the creation of conflict.
I am the one who must observe how the observer is observing, and learn to separate the threads of thought from the tapestry of the past.
 
Only then can I free myself from the accumulated memory of past conditioning.
I am the sole determinant of how I view my world, and I exercise this freedom now to visualize a world of Harmony, Peace and Love.
And So It Is.
 
Hollis Lashley,(c) 2010.



 

As I close, I must tell you that we had a very lovely time at Six Flags in Maryland last weekend.  We walked, and walked, and walked.  Of course, we enjoyed all the shows and sat looking at all the families and little kiddies as they enjoyed the water park, and the entire park overall.  Of course, Todd reminisced quite a lot about his years working at the park when he was a youth.  He pointed out, and shared with me all the places he helped put together and beautify for the opening day of the park, and shared some of his exciting stories and experiences [with his friends] during that special time as they embarked on a new fun job at "Wild World" now Six Flags a number of years ago.  Additionally, we talked and laughed about all the fun things he did to entertain the kids during his time there.  Our annual day at Six Flags is always fun; and this year was fantastic and fun-filled.

solomons-island-winery-awards.jpg (48878 bytes)As for last Sunday, the 1st Annual Caribbean Wine and Food Festival -- despite the rain, it was pleasurable.  We had a great time specifically enjoying the wines from Solomons Island winery, and particularly enjoyed the Watermelon White Merlot Wine.  The entertainment too was good, as well as the Jerk Chicken [which completely tempted us to try, and we did].  The rain indeed deterred many from attending; but those who were there, I'm sure had a lovely time (as we did).  Congratulations to the Caribbean Entertainment Network for the lovely day and great entertainment.

This weekend its all about the family, and we are so happy for Cousin Apollo as he gets himself ready to embark on Fatherhood.  Todd oftentimes talk about his baby cousin and smile when looks back on Apollo's childhood.  Funny how fast they grow up, because it seems like it was just yesterday Apollo was a baby; and now he is about to become a father.  We look forward to spending time with Apollo and the family, at Apollo's first baby shower.
