Not Until
January 7, 2021
I recently read about another African American man by the name of Andre Hill that was killed by a White police officer in Ohio. The officer mistakenly thought a cell phone Mr. Hill had in his hand was a gun. I also just read that since the death of George Floyd, there have been at least 76 Black people killed by White police officers. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window – Is it Time to Reset Your Expectations?
December 31, 2020
Every year as the clock rolls over to the next, I begin to reflect on how I did during the current year and then I write out what I hope to achieve for the year to come. If you are like me, I am so ready to say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021.  However, even with all the pain and disappointment that came this year, I still was able to experience some joy when I married the love of my life in our backyard this past summer. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window: Good Enough
December 17, 2020
When you hear the phrase “good enough” what do you think? Most of the time we take it personal and we think that WE are not good enough.  We start thinking about our shortcomings, and mistakes and we even go as far as to look at things like our bodies, hair, clothes, and everything else in between.  ... read more »

Wendy’s Window– What Does Your VOTE Mean?
October 22, 2020
Plato said, “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” We are in countdown mode with less than two weeks before the election.  Some of us have already cast our vote, either in person where we stood in long lines, or we sent our ballots in by mail. For those that may still be on the fence regarding if you are going to vote, I am telling you it is not an option.  Too many people have fought, sacrificed, or even died for us to have the right to cast our vote.  It is imperative that each one of us does our research about the candidates and the issues that are before us right now. If you are not sure, I am here to tell you your vote means everything. I decided to take a personal look at how I view the importance of everyone’s vote, especially during this 2020 election. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window-A Change is Gonna Come
September 24, 2020
In 1963, just two years after I was born, Sam Cooke sang a song called a “Change is gonna come.”  It’s been too hard living, but I’m afraid to die ‘cause I don’t know what’s up there beyond the sky…there been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long, but now I think I’m able to carry on.  It’s been a long, time coming, but I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window– Chaos Everywhere!
September 17, 2020
Now we have fires to deal with! Who would have every thought we would experience so much chaos in one year? In January we learned about the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the rest of the passengers on the small private plane. Our hearts were full of sorrow in such disbelief. In February, we publicly experienced another Black man killed in cold blood by the name of Ahmaud Arbery. March was terrifying as we were officially introduced to COVID-19, the pandemic we all have been living with for months now, and an innocent woman by the name of Breonna Taylor was murdered in her own bed by police officers.  ... read more »

Wendy’s Window- ‘We Have Only Just Begun’
September 3, 2020
The Democratic and Republican Conventions have always been a sight to behold. Most of us wait in anticipation over all the fanfare and excitement that happens when they occur.  Every four years, leaders and party supporters come together to rally around their chosen candidate and to help the voters get to know a little more about the candidates and their families. The pandemic has made all of us adjust to a new way of doing things and this even includes political conventions.  Everything has gone virtual.   Or at least we are told that is how things should be; but there will always be those that do not follow the rules. ... read more »
