Making changes that will result in a better 2021
February 25, 2021
The year is off to a busy start and if we get involved, things will continue to move at a fast pace. As you think about what you will spend your time on, I suggest you take about a week to jot down somethings that are important to you.
Our goal is to come out of the pandemic better than when we went in. If things go well with the vaccine and people continuing to wear their masks, Dr. Fauci and President Joe Biden said that by December of this year, things could be almost back to a sense of normalcy.
That means that we have ten months to get it right. First of all, we must wear a mask when we are around other people. If you don't have a KN95 mask then wear two masks. It's better to be safe than sorry. If you are over 65 years of age, contact your mayor's office to see when they will be offering Vaccine shots.
Next, I know it is Michigan and the warm weather won't last, but when it is comfortable for you, begin taking walks outside. You will feel better and you might even loose a little weight. Take the time to meditate and pray for your family and your city while you are walking.
As Black History Month comes to an end, I hope you have used this time to learn about the cultural of Black people. Black History is American History and this pandemic has revealed many levels of systemic racism. Who would have thought that systemic racism exists in many of our cities and businesses?
Lastly get involved in a community group in your city. You have a voice and you should practice using it. We are powerful beyond measure and we must band together to make changes that result in a better life for our children and grandchildren.
Don't let the year pass you by without making any positive changes. We are counting on you.
