Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 2017

Standard

I am so thankful for some time to reflect on the sacrifices of Dr. King. Of course I recall many of his famous quotes and teachings. Most of all, I am humbled to be a product of those sacrifices. I too am responsible for keeping his legacy alive, not just enjoying a day off work that came much too late.

This photo was taken at the Lorraine Motel at the exact site where Dr. King fell. He knew that his life might be short and traded quantity for quality and meaning.

Merry Christmas 2016_”Hidden Figures” the Movie Review

Standard

The best part of Christmas is spending time with close and extended family and friends. I really love that as our lives evolve and change we never remain stagnant and continually add new experiences and traditions to spice things up.

On this Christmas, us girls decided to start a new Christmas Day movie tradition. A bad movie would have probably ended the thought, however, we went to see “Hidden Figures.” The movie is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

I give the movie 4 out of 4 stars for story concept and music score which was the perfect accompaniment. But most of all, because of the intelligence, courage and grace of these three previously unsung women, perhaps we are all becoming less hidden from each other.
