Black History Month is an observance of the history of the African diaspora in a number of countries outside of Africa. Since 1976, it is observed annually in the United States and Canada in February, while in the United Kingdom it is observed in October. In the U.S., Black History Month is also referred to as African-American History Month. Black History Month was begun as Negro History Week by historian Carter G. Woodson in 1926. His goal was to educate the American people about African-American history, focusing on African Americans‘ cultural backgrounds and reputable achievements.

Life/Death – The Double Edged Sword

Love/Hate, Hot/Cold, Life/Death…..

All good comes with an ugly side. After watching my Chicago Bears give up a 4th quarter 10 point lead to Tim Tebow, I can’t help but think about the double edge sword that comes with being a fan and how that applies to life.

With great success comes great responsibilities, with a great relationships, can come very ugly break ups, and of course with mo money, mo problems. ┬áThat means you have to appreciate things for what they are at that time and place, and don’t expect everything to smell like roses and life to be easy.

Take life as it comes, appreciate the good and accept the bad. Life goes on, until we die, and other life continues to go on.
