Stop the Madness–Exercise and “Our” Hair

I wrote this article some years ago, and decided it was time to pull it out of the vault. As a woman of a certain age, a woman who is a mother, a woman who is African American and a woman who is an educator I wanted to write one about “our” hair and “exercise”. Since I’ve read negative things online lately about the Olympians, I thought it would be nice to revisit this article. Take a moment and enjoy and reflect. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”, and for those in the Olympics “thisistheirbestyear”. Be proud and be silent–it can be “Golden”.

Olympian Al Joyner talks of Loss

Olympian Al Joyner talks of Loss

Olympian Al Joyner tells how his daughter Mary saved his life after the death of his wife, Flo Jo.  The entire episode on Oprah’s Next Chapter was fantanstic.  If you are a fan of the Olympics, watch this episode before they come on.

Mary says she remembers saying her prayers with her mother every night.  She said her mother always told her to be grateful for “everything” because nothing was promised.  Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.
