13 Years #9/11

13 Years


By: Ms. K


I can’t believe it has been 13 years

I will never forget that darkest moment

I never taught I would experience such a dark moment in my young adolescence life

I will never forget the heartbreak

The lost of hope, and lives

We felt lost that day

A day in modern American history that we suffer another great lost on American soil

Another time in history that was unexpected

Another time that innocent people lost their lives

They will never go home

They will never say goodbye

Lives were lost with the memories still lingering around!

Wolves in Sheep Clothing

Men at times can act like wolves in sheep clothing. They show their innocent, caring, compassionate side, but under it all is a wolf waiting to appear. I’m not going to lie I am not a round the way (girl) woman, someone who has dated more then one hand. My longest relationship was almost 6 years. I am now 28 years old and have been single for a year and a half now. I might not have a strong dating past, but I have seen and learn many things along the way.

Saturday May 17, 2014 was a special day for my not only was it my birthday, but I also was able to take part in the rally to bring back our girls. Over 230 Girls were kidnapped in North East Nigeria on April 15, 2014 . The girls are between the ages of 12 & 17 years old. They were abducted from their boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria.  “Bring back our girls” has finally become world news and government leaders are finally stepping in to make a difference. Even though it took some time for this important issue to get world recognition it is important for these girls to know they are important.

Declaring My Skin Tone Within the African American Community: Part 1

 Declaring My Skin Tone Within the African American Community: Part 1


By: Ms. K



It is the lack of acceptance within the African American community that allows colorism to still exists. It is hard to make people realize that their beauty comes from knowing their own self worth. The moment people in the African American community can eliminate the term “light skin” vs. “dark skin” well be the moment colorism will end officially.
