Guest Editorial: Black History Month

AS WE END AFRICAN-AMERICAN OR BLACK HISTORY FOR 2007, IT IS A SAD COMMENTARY FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO HAVE TAKEN THIS "MONTH OF HONOR" AND TURNED IT INTO A MONTH OF MORE DEATH AND KILLINGS OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS BY FELLOW AFRICAN- AMERICANS.

  

EACH OF US HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE THE CITY A BETTER PLACE FOR OURSELVES, OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.  WHAT WILL YOUR LEGACY BE?  IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW YOU CAN MAKE MONTGOMERY BETTER, VISIT A LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND LISTEN TO YOUR CHILD READ .  I AM ENCOURAGING BLACK MEN, IF YOU ARE A FATHER, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STEP UP TO THE PLATE...YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS NEED YOU! 

  

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH....WE AS BLACK PEOPLE CAN NO LONGER SIT BACK AND ALLOW NEGATIVE ELEMENTS IN OUR COMMUNITY TO REIGN SUPREME...

  

I INVITE THE ENTIRE MONTGOMERY COMMUNITY TO JOIN WITH ME AND WSFA, IF YOU ARE SERIOUSLY READY TO MAKE MONTGOMERY THE KIND OF CITY WE ARE PROUD TO CALL HOME...OF COURSE, IT'S NOT PERFECT, BUT WORKING TOGETHER IT WE'LL MAKE IT BETTER...THANK YOU
