The happy unicorn 🦄

Part 1.

Once upon a time in land far away there stood a beautiful meadow full of unicorns,

In this meadow there lived a unicorn named Starfire, she was a shy but happy unicorn, she lived in a small hut that was just right and to her liking.

In that same meadow there lived another unicorn who was magical and the fairest of them all, this unicorn had the power to fly, whenever the unicorn began to take off it’s magical, beautiful wings would open up as it went into flight.

Starfire would often gaze out at the open sky and day dream about the two of them maybe one day flying together .

One day as Starfire was grazing in the field, the magical unicorn flew down and stood a little ways off from her because she was hungry and searching for something tasty to eat.

Starfire couldn’t help but to stare at the unicorn in amazement and awe, quickly starfire realized that the unicorn was hungry so she said, hey there, here are some delicious apples and bananas to eat if you’d like, the unicorn gave a nod to Starfire and accepted.

As the magical flying unicorn stood there eating, starfire couldn’t help but stare at the unicorns beauty, as the unicorn was almost done eating, starfire gathered the courage to speak, she said:

“Would you allow me to somehow, someday ride the skies with you”?

Because you have fed me, I will grant you your request said the unicorn, starfire was so excited and overjoyed.

The magical unicorn introduced himself as Phillip, starfire then did the same and they became friends. For the remainder of that day the two stayed and played together until the night had fallen,

when it was time to part ways the two promised each other that they would meet again the next day, so they said goodnight and went their separate ways.

That night starfire was so happy and excited and couldn’t wait to hang out with her new friend Phillip again.

The next day starfire took care of all that she had to do, it seemed like her legs couldn’t take her fast enough to go meet back up with Phillip, when she finally arrived she saw that phillip had been captured, he was tied up and put in a cage by some horrible person.

Starfire was heartbroken, as she stood there with tears in her eyes she yelled out “why are you doing this to him”?!!!

starfire recognized the horrible person, she knew he was one of the men that captured unicorns and sold them for money, as heartbroken as starfire was, she vowed to herself that she would find Phillip wherever they were taking him and do everything in her power to save him.

The happy unicorn

Starfire was a happy Unicorn, she often dreamed of one day flying the skys but she hadn’t yet been given any wings until she meets and befriends the enchanted unicorn of the meadows named Philip.

Little did they know that their lives would change forever as Starfire goes on a journey to rescue Philip from the men who have captured him.

Naomi’s gifts

Little Naomi was one lucky little girl, each day for her was like Christmas because each and evey morning she  would receive plenty of gifts. 

 Now, normally any child receiving so many gifts would be beyond happy, But, little Naomi always found a reason to complain.

 Instead of being happy and grateful for the gifts she would kick them aside and ignore them, it was like none of them were pleasing, none of her gifts made her happy, one would say that she was ungrateful for them all.  Naomi only paid attention when she would see someone else with a gift that she wanted or  thought was better than the ones she had. 

 One day Naomi was home waiting for a gift to come, it was a gift she had been secretly waiting patiently for, and while she had so many other gifts already, she wanted nothing to do with them, instead she cried and made a fuss over what she did not have but wanted.  

When Naomi’s sister Mary entered the room and saw that naomi was sad she asked, what’s wrong naomi why are you so sad? 

“The gift that I’ve been wanting and waiting for hasn’t shown up” was her reply.

  This gift that naomi was waiting on was one that she really wanted,  this particular gift was the one that  she felt that she needed she felt as though it was the only way that she could best show her devotion and worship and adoration to the giver of the gift. 

Mary again turned to Naomi and asked, do you trust our King? do you trust that He is the giver of the gifts? Of course I do! was Naomi’s reply, After everything the King had done for Naomi, after everything HE bought her through, she Vowed to serve Him and worship Him until her very last breath. 

Mary again said to Naomi, does He hold your life in His hands? Does the King truly have your all? Naomi nodded and answered yes.  So, why then do you complain little sister?, does it matter if the gift comes? whether it be today, tomorrow or not at all? 

If the King does not allow the gift to come then certainly He has something else awaiting you that will be much better for you.  Naomi stood speechless, for a moment she thought on her ways and realized that all this time she had been selfish and ungrateful, missing out on opportunities that presented themselves for her to give thanks and to worship the King for the blessings and all that she had been given by the King.

Naomi paused again and turned to look at her sister mary.  With tears in her eyes she grabbed Mary by the hand then smiled, It had been so long since she felt the light and love and peace of God in her heart. Naomi eyes had finally been opened, After all this time she could now see that she was and had always been indeed blessed and surrounded by all the wonderful gifts of God our King.   

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”  (James 1:17) 

🎵  Jesus loves me this i know for the Bible tells me so little ones to Him belong they are weak but He is strong 🎵

Relationships are no longer what they used to be.

My mom married my step-dad when I was really young, TRUTH IS, I never took to him, to me he was like bad glue, he just didn’t rub off the right way, I just didn’t get along with him BUTTTTT it wasn’t about me it was about THEM…. one thing I can say for sure is that come what may they MADE IT WORK!, never once did I see my stepfather walk out because “he needed space or he needed to think” never EVER once did I see my mom disrespect him in any way, shape or form.

I’m so much older now and I see/hear people in whole relationship talking bout I/we need a break, I need to think, now, I’ve come to realize that relationships of old were, like ford “BUILT TOUGH”, they had the glue to keep it together comes what may, good times, bad times, tough times, tears and all but they STUCK IT OUT!!
I’m ALMOST 39 years old and the question that sticks with me is, if people are in a relationship or engaged and want to run or take a break every time things get rough HOWWWWW in the world will a marriage between them ever work?
Lately in my head I’ve come to see that being engaged is the new being married because it seems like NOBODY wants to get married anymore, nobody wants to stand before God and say I do and I mean I get it.

I remember a long time ago someone said to me “it’s just cheaper to keep her” because a divorce would just cost to much and be to much of a headache and take up to much time, not to long ago someone said to me that their fear was loosing the person simply because by loosing that person that would mean they would then know that they were completely rejected and understand that there was better than them out there, they would then understand that they could have/should have done better even though all along they chose not to.

It’s sad because it seems like often times, the only reason people hold on is out of selfishness and fear that the person they were with who they hurt or did wrong by actually ended up finding someone who treated them so much better OR didn’t find anyone at all because, well, “if I can’t have you then you can’t be with anyone else” right???

Here’s my thing…before entering into a relationship and dragging it out for years and then never marrying that person (I have seen this first hand) the female was devestated!. So before committing PLEASE be sure of what it is that you really want, otherwise leave that person be so to not waste their time or so that the next person who may indeed find them WORTHY of loving enough to marry can indeed be with them… let’s stop being selfish holding on to people… GOOOOOD PEOPLE because we know that they are good quality material but we are just to selfish to let go in fear of them meeting someone who will value them!….

In retrospect, let us Choose to do right or be the bigger person and let them go.

Allenworth, California

Did you know that when Allenworth was first established it was an all black township?

Allenworth, California was founded in 1908 by colonial Allen Allenworth and a few other men of color. The town was designated to be a refuge/ a safe space for African Americans, a place to get away from the oppression that they were facing at the time.

• By 1912 the town was able to run off of Agriculture, they had their own school district and they also owned small businesses.

• By the 1920’s the town was flourishing, they had a population of about 300.
In the 1960’s things began to go down hill,
The water in the land now had arsenic and they also faced a famine in the land, because of this there was loss of lives.

• By 1976 the town was dormant, after some time the town was built up into a state historical park.

Mr. Carter G. Woodson

The Father of black History!

Carter G. Woodson also known as the father of negro history week.

 Mr. Woodson along with his Omega psi phi fraternity brothers banded together and  established Negro literature and history week in February of 1924 because he believed that african americans were not being taught enough about their heritage, after that mr woodson decided that he wanted a much wider celebration.

In 1926 Mr. Woodson took the opportunity to send out a press release that would announce the very first “Negro History week” the reason why he chose February was because it is the month that Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick douglas were born,  Mr.Douglas and Mr. Lincoln were two men of historic achievements, since they were already celebrated by the black community Mr. Woodson saw it fit to choose february as the perfect month.

Mr. Woodson knew that Black history could not be limited to just One week so in the 1940’s he put forth the effort to push black history to not just a week but a month.

In the 1960’s young african americans on their college campuses asked that their schools and organizations would change with the times.

In 1976, the 50th anniversary of the very first negro history week, the change was finally made to black history month, since that dau, every president has made a proclimation honoring black history mohth.

President Gerald Ford in 1976 kicked off the tradition, he said that this celebration/month allowed people to give honor to the often neglected accomplishments of black americans.

President Ronald Regan during his term in his proclamation stated that “understanding the history of Black Americans is a key to understanding the strength of our nation.”

In 2016 President Barak Obama made his final proclamation in honor of Woodson’s initiative which is now recognized as one of the nation’s oldest organized celebrations of history. 

Mr. Woodson passed away at home of a heart attack in 1950 but his legacy, accomplishments and endeavours live on to this day.

A letter from a slave to his mother in 1859.

This is a letter from an unidentified slave that was written in 1859, it was said that both he and his mom were slaves.

My Dear Mother

I take this opportunity of writing to you to let you know that I am still in Alexandria. I expect to start about next tuesday. there is a young lady here that I am very much taken with and I think that my Master will buy her and take her out with us. since I was in Rappahanock, I have been in Faquier at the Widow Bailys and have seen all my friends.  I do not think I can leave Virginia without carrying out a Virginia wife with me. I went to Mrs. Bailys expecting to meet My Old Master as he said he would be there.  Mrs. Baily met me at the lot gate and was wondering who I was untill I got up to her when she knew me. I expected to come back to see you all again but as I bid you all good bye I thought I would not

My Dear Mother this all I can think of at present. If I succeed in my undertakings I will send you all the good news when I get home.

We have bought all our servants.

In Care of Mr R.W. Smith

• The letter was written in Alexandria Virginia

• The slave master was Mr. R.W. Smith who had a plantation and owned 74 slaves in Portland Alabama

• Francis Lee Smith was the brother of R.W, Francis lived in Alexandria, Virginia, at the time he had been visiting R.W and purchased slaves for his own plantation.

This letter was found in the possession of Colonel John A. Washington, George Washington’s great-grandnephew 

It’s a wonder if Mr. John Washington had slaves for hire in 1859, maybe Mr Robert Smith was a temp master at the time?.

Mr. Granville T woods

Born in Columbus, Ohio, on April 23, 1856, Mr. Woods was a rather uneducated young black man.

As a young man Mr. Woods worked several jobs, he was a railroad engineer, he was an engineer on a British ship, and he was a railroad worker from 1876-1878.

Mr Woods lived in NYC and he took courses in engineering and electricity, he soon realized that those courses would shape his future.

In the Summer of 1878 Mr woods for eight months worked for the Springfield, Jackson and pomeroy railroad company, there he worked at the pumping station, shortly after, he was hired by the Dayton and southeastern railway company as an engineer, he maintained this job for a total of 13 months.

While working and traveling, over time he began to formulate in his mind what would be his greatest invention, 

In 1880 Mr. Woods moved to Cincinnati and set up his own company. In 1889 he filed his first patent for a better steam boiler furnace, his second patent was for a better telephone Transmitter.

The combined patent for the telephone and telegraph went on to be purchased by Mr. Alexander G. Bell.   The payment from Mr. Bell allowed Mr. Woods to work on one of his greatest inventions and a huge success, it was called “The Troller”, a metal wheel that allowed what would become later known as “Trolleys” to collect electric overhead power to keep them moving.

In 1887 Mr Woods created his most important invention “The induction Telegraph”

This device allowed people to communicate by voice over telegraph wires which helped to speed up communication and helped to avoid train accidents 

Mr woods went on to be known as “Black Edison”

In 1890 the 7 foot tall Mr Woods moved his company to NYC. In 1901 he created what’s known as “The power pick up device”

This invention is to this day used by electric powered transit systems.

Mr. Woods end of life took place on January 30th 1910 in NYC. At the time of his death he invented 15 appliances for electric railways.

The case of interracial marriage. “Lovings vs the state of Virgina”

Mildred and Richard Loving.

Did you know that the marriage of Mr. And Mrs. Loving was the reason why the ban on interracial marriage was overturned in 1967?

Mildred loving was African American and native American, she became a civil rights activist in the 1960s.
During that time she was married to her husband Richard loving who was white, the two choose to leave Virginia to go and get married, when they returned Mrs. Loving was arrested because the marriage violated Virginia state laws.

When Mrs. Loving was released the coupled was then referred to the ACLU by Robert Kennedy.
Mr. And Mrs. Loving soon took their case to court, it was the case of “Loving vs Virginia” which made it’s way all the way to the Supreme court and won!

It was then that the laws against interracial marriage were found and made to be unconstitutional. In the year 2000 in Alabama the law that forbid interracial marriage was also overturned..

when you think about It 2000 wasn’t that long ago, it’s funny to think that interracial marriage was still unacceptable in this day and age in the USA)

The Lovings came to be known as the hero’s who made it happen and opened the door for others in the same situation who were afraid.
