Sista's start with a friendly hello...............

Why is it that women especially (African American) women have a hard time supporting each other. I watch sit and watch women walk pass each other and don't utter a word. No hello, good morning, etc...oh but she will look you up and down to check our your attire. What is this? I really have a hard time with this. Ladies, why is it so hard to speak or even giving another sister a compliment? You see that sister sitting at the bar with some fly shoes on, instead of saying nice shoes, you'll find something hateful to say. Oh let's not forget about the sister heading up your department. And why is it that you and the other AA women working in the department have a problem with her? I've heard it one to many times...she's changed since she made manager. Well guess what if she didn't change she would no longer be in that position. Instead of you being proud to see another sister move up your one of the ones eager to see her fall. Ladies we have to do better. How do you expect to get respect when you don't give it? Do me a favor. When you see a sister tomorrow...start by speaking...a quick hello will do. Next, how about a compliment, nice shoes, cute hair do. Bigup another sister and you will see how good it feels and believe me you just might make someones day.

I'd love to hear from you all when you see the reactions you receive from that sister, and maybe even a co-worker.

Motherhood...What you Don't Know! by Melinda Robertson

“ Motherhood . . . What You Don’t Know!” is the story of Nicole Washington, a fifteen year old honor roll student who loses her virginity, gets pregnant and attempts to hide her pregnancy. Once the father denies the baby, Nicole realizes she’s too young to be a mother, but it’s too late and Nicole is forced to have a baby she is clearly not ready for. Trying to juggle “motherhood” and demands of high school is far more than Nicole could have ever imagined.

Nicole’s pregnancy takes a toll on her parents’ marriage as they blame one another for Nicole’s predicament. Her father feels that since Nicole’s mother failed to talk to Nicole about sex, birth control, etc. it was her fault. And, Nicole’s mother feels that since Nicole’s father worked six days a week, twelve hours a day, he neglected Nicole and it was his fault. The story highlights the many obstacles Nicole faces throughout her pregnancy and the impact her pregnancy has on her parents, their marriage, etc. because each time a child is impregnated, the entire family is affected.
