“A Dream Fulfilled” written by Milan Ford. On yesterday, America made history.  History that at one time was only a dream.  So like millions around the world, with a renewed mind and spirit that what others had once said was impossible, or perhaps always needing to be deferred has now become a reality… I woke up today pondering the question: What happens to a dream… fulfilled? Does it rise up like a rye or a wheat stalk? Or dangle low like a sloth and then walk? Does it smell like a garden rose? Or freeze in time just to strike a pose? Does it compare what is now to what was then? Or maybe it is just free now to dream yet again?


Moreno Valley what an awesome past week we have seen. In this life we have seen something that so many of us never in our wildest dreams thought could happen.  As I look back over my life it was not in vain, to God be the glory. Now we must recommit to what this is all about, reach one, teach one and so on. What ever you can do to rebuild our America let us join hands and do it. The greatest thing we can do is to love one another right where we are and then build.

There was one female Buffalo Soldier her name was “Cathay Williams.” Because she wanted to be independent, she turned her name around, cut her hair, and became “WILLIAM CATHEY.” Cathay was also born a slave in Independence, Missouri.  Cathay join the Army in November 1866, I will write more at a later time about the Buffalo Soldiers.

Paula Gilbert lived most of her life here, now lives in Bellevue, Nebraska. She funeralized her husband Ret. MSGT and USAF MSGT. Marvin Lamar Walker on January 6, 2009. We are asking that you remember Paula and the children in your prayers.

Let me leave this with you as in this year of 2009. Live your best life and remember, “Happiness keeps you sweet. Trials keep you strong. Sorrows keep you human.

Failures keep you humble. Success keeps you glowing. But only God keeps you going.

Be Blessed
