2010 is not playing!!!! So much has happened since that ball dropped in Times Square. Haiti’s disaster shook the entire world and forced so many to count their blessings. Over a month later the aftermath still lingers and 2010 for many has become a year of reality. Reality is jobs and the economy still has not picked up for many Americans, yet reality can bring hope. For me and many that I know, brighter days seems to be somewhere in their forecast. As the Lionel Richie & Quincy Jones classic and remake, We Are the World, says,” we are the ones who make a brighter day so let’s start giving, there is a choice we’re making we’re saving our own lives, it’s true we’ll make a better day just you and me”. Giving your all and not giving up is key to making it through any adversity. The New Orléans Saints came out on top to win the Superbowl. A city that has seen its share of devastation. 5 years ago the city was underwater and damaged as people died trying to make it to the Superdome. Now the Superdome is home to the NFL Champions. As black history continues, I am reminded of the plight of those that came before me. 2010 means possibilities and hope. Like the mythical phoenix, we all can rise from the ashes and be reborn.
2010, let’s do it!!!
