For My Children
Words matter. Language counts.
Do not let them make you believe that all things Black are bad.
Even if so much of our vocabulary surrounding darkness makes you feel uneasy.
Black should not be scary; black is beautiful; black is rich; black is health, not death.
Maybe you’ve forgotten…
The darkest room provides the deepest sleep
The blackest berries produce the sweetest juice
Rich, black soil creates the best nutrition for growth
Blacklight shows what is often hidden
Black garments are elegant, sophisticated, classy
Black-belts are the best at what they do
The blackest night skies allow you to see the most stars
Black licorice heals
Black Beauty was incredible; The Black Stallion was the fastest
Black cats bring prosperity in Scotland and good luck in Brittain and Japan
Blackbirds beautify the sky
Black kings, Queens, Traders, Philosophers & Teachers enriched the world.
