Thanks, KC for the LINK to this very poignant NYT love story re what this couple went through to marry, love, and live with each other as two members of the human species!
They were so committed to their love for each other and to their son!
And to just think that these days, some timid bw will allow a mere scowl or a few words from a retarded hater stop them from being with a CQLL wm. This couple showed courage and grit to the max!
I am so thankful to this couple and for people like them!!
It's people like this man and woman who make me soooooo proud to be a human being! LOL!
Anyway, this is why I don't watch the "news" on TV and I try to overlook it online. The "news" is a steady diet of spoonfeeding of the most horrible about human behavior. Just think--if we could only get a steady diet of stories like this one. Wow!
I know, I know--many viewers would no longer watch the news if lots of stories like this one were presented. (Sigh) They would consider this boring, tune out, and search around to find stories about blood and guts flying all over the place. SMH
Lessons that this article teaches:
1. You must NEVER let the haters win!
2. African American women deserve every single privilege and perk they can get in this life. Your foremothers (like this woman) have paid all of your dues for several lifetimes, already. Be your best and be determined to not allow anyone to ever stop you from securing every privilege and perk that ANY man or any person can or will offer you. Don't ever self-limit. Don't YOU be the one who refuses to collect your privileges and perks. Don't ever announce that you're coming; just go out there and act the part!
I've never doubted that I deserve the best and if you have any doubts about that, just keep repeating to yourself: I-deserve-every-privilege-and-perk, etc. and make sure you're conducting yourself like someone who is deserving. People will respond.
