The Struggle is not for Crybabies

Adults must be able to communicate to each other by not crying. Using Jesus' disciples as an example, Minister Evans noted that too often we cry to the wrong people, instead of seeking the proper help. Our heroes and sheroes (e.g., Carter G. Woodson, Harriet Tubman, Mary McLeod Bethune, Booker T. Washington) were not crybabies, Minister Evans stressed. When they found themselves in a difficult situation, they went on ahead with whatever resources they had and worked to the best of their ability. Crying does not solve your problems. A crybaby mentality prevents us from being involved in organizations. You must spend time with positive people in the community to counteract the negative people in the community.

Reader, you are invited to celebrate the Week of Remembrance in Honor of Sister Siti Akanke from May 8-14.
