harriet-tubman1“I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.” Mother Harriet Tubman

I am dedicating all of my remaining posts this year to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ females.

As in all of my posts, UNDERLINED WORDS are links.

CharlotteI received the following article today from my first love Charlotte, who have loved me for over 40 years in spite of me and I immediately decided to share it with all of you…

Slow down for three minutes to read this.

ChildrenA group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds , ‘What does love mean?’ The answers they got were broader, deeper, and more profound than anyone could have ever imagined ! See what you think:

Old Lovers‘When my grandmother got arthritis , she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time , even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love. Rebecca- age 8

SafeWhen someone loves you , the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’ Billy – age 4

‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and just listen.’ Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)

Little More Love‘If you want to learn to love better , you should start with a friend who you hate. ‘ Nikka – age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)

Fathers Love‘During my piano recital , I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’ Cindy – age 8

Being a Mother‘My mommy loves me more than anybody.  You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’ Clare – age 6

‘Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’ Elaine-age 5

Good Friends‘When you love somebody , your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.’ (what an image) Karen – age 7

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross..’ Mark – age 6

And the final one:

SilenceThe winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said , ‘Nothing , I just helped him cry’
