Mr. Wyclef Jean a True Humanitarian/Artist


http://www.yele.org/index.html (click on the link)
It was my pleasure to meet Mr. Wyclef Jean at the Black Enterprise Magazine/Golf-Tennis Gayla this weekend. I must say in the mist of all the entertaining Mr. Wyclef is very down to earth. He came amongs the people, and I had a chance to share with him, that I'm a follower of his charity and his great work for his native land. I also shared with him Children With a Vision, Inc and what we do. Mr. Wyclef was very attentive in the conversation. To me I have more Respect, because he is humble and mindful.
We have to support these charities and causes. It impact so many people lives. It is a pleasure again to see young Leader's as ourselves make a impact of so many individuals lives today. It's a Blessing to be a Blessing.

Push Play

Happy Birthday Babie. On this day September 3 we celebrated your Birthday, and 29 day later God called you home. My heart hurts, and still the pain and tears feel unbearable today. You left me with a mark in my life of what a REAL MAN besides my Daddy should be. I thank you for that.

You gave me real love, and that's priceless. I can't believe its 16yrs to this day since you been gone. But you gave me the best 5 yrs that a man could give a wife. Thank you Lord for lending him to me for those years. Because you made me go on with life, and look at the Women you turned me into. Helping kids and other. As long as I live Oliver, you will alway be a part of me.

Love your WIFE Mrs. Tonya M. Lewis

Do You Remember.....







DO YOU remember the times!!!! Survial 1. When you put a slice of bread of the bottom of the plate and piled grits,butter,and cheese over the bread, and that was a meal. 2. Rice with butter. 3. Sugar water frozen in ice tray. That was our popcicles. 4. Toast with surup poured over it.......... 5. Tomatoes sandwhich, with mayo, salt and a dash of pepper. 6. lima or blackeye peas with rice....NO MEAT 7. Powder milk, with a little bit of sugar. Government Block cheese, that made the best grilled cheese sandwhich.

See sometimes we forget those days. NEVER forget were you came from. Because that's what's going to help you get were you're going today. I thank GOD for those days. Because in the mist of this recession, WE know how to survive. Go back to those days before you had the resturants, and the fine dining. God BLESS everyone THIS DAY. And just to add, When God Bless us to wake up, we won't even smile, or say good morning.

I REMEMBER those days, That's what make me the young lady I am today, striving to make someone else day better. And that's what make me forget about what i'm going through. Now I'm going to go to work now, and make a better day for myself. Thank God for my DADDY, he made a strong LADY TODAY.
