Hi World,

I did it! I cycled over 7 miles as a participant in 'Cycle Around the Globe' Thursday, September 10th. It was a challenge created by the International Association for Suicide Prevention to collectively cycle the circumference of the globe, 40,075 km or 24,900 miles, and to have participants cycling on every continent. I represented for the United States by way of Brooklyn!-Check the 11th name down in pic below or click here.


We will break the silence, speak up and encourage our neighbors, family and friends to acquire mental health visits and let them know why we want to see them tomorrow! The hashtag #seeyoutomorrow was the campaign from To Write Love On Her Arms this year. I fell in love with this awesome, creative 'non-profit movement' a couple years ago. -They were advertising an event in NY which was listed on Citylimits.org-
(P.S. City Limits has a Citizens Toolkit and UrbaNerd section you gotta check out!)


TWLOHA is 'dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.' - TWLOHA


The Scudder Intervention Services Foundation has a series of events beyond the five boroughs of NYC regarding suicide awareness and prevention all this month! Click on their name for more information.

I pray that you were inspired by today's post. Share it with someone that may be blessed by the resources within. Research opportunities in your area or partner with an organization to create them and be blessed!-Peace.

Let Us Teach As We March On!

I recently attended a black history celebration in which a woman on the program was singing Lift Every Voice and Sing. This song is the Black National Anthem. As an African American raised in a predominate black church I'd sing it with congregants during service, as an alum of an HBCU (Historically Black College) we'd sing the anthem at special events and as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) which adopted it as the official song, I'm both humbled and proud to stand up in reverence of my ancestry. The lyrics request for a people to give high praise in continued faith and remembrance to past and present legacies of resilience. Be sure to view the words and related links below.
Yet at this event I was the only one standing. It was a teachable moment as I quickly nudged my eldest daughter to stand with me. I could hear someone whisper, ‘should we be standing?’ I didn’t turn around. I figured someone would tell them or they’d ju…

Putting CommUnity Ideas To Work!

Hello World! -Thank God For the Weekend!

Over the past three years I've worked to promote education, mentorship, emergency preparation and faith based initiatives in communities undergoing development. While serving to get the word out about services and supporting non-profit organizations and agencies, I've come across many amazing people and events in which many community members may not be aware.

I intend to highlight some of the entities in which I've engaged in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, East New York, Brooklyn, Far Rockaway, Queens, South Jamaica, Queens, Brownsville, Brooklyn, East Harlem, South Bronx, North Shore, Staten Island and more! I believe these are all areas to keep an eye on for old and new services which assist the community in addition to events which enrich the lives of friends and neighbors alike.

If you live in these areas and would like me to promote, host or cover your next community event ...Email your Beloved Community Ambassador Today! Blessmela…

Day On Dreams!

Happy Blessed 2018! I'm elated that new year celebrations are followed by national commemorative events and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Starting this weekend there will be many opportunities to lend a helping hand in our communities across the United States of America. This is a Day On to Serve! The Corporation for National and Community Service expects to engage nearly 1 million people in thousands of service projects in all 50 states. On this day, federal, state, and local
leaders will join citizens in honoring Dr. King's legacy through service projects addressing pressing
community needs.


In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day as the first and only federal holiday observed as a national day of
service, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this national
effort. Americans may visit MLKDay.gov to find a service project for MLK Day or a year-round volunteer
opportunity in their own community. If you have not already …
