This is something I read today it simply says; “Can You Say.” Can you say in parting with the Day that’s slipping fast. That you helped a single person. Of the many you have passed? Is a single life rejoicing over what you did or said? Does someone whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead? Did you waste the day or lose it? Was it well spent or poorly spent? Did you leave a trend or kindness? Or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber. Do you think that God would say? You have made the world much better. Read your “Word prayerful and think.”


Moreno Valley as we celebrated Black history last month, I would like to share with you some history that Mr. Bill Barr, a marketing professional, shared with me.

Black History celebrations began in 1926 as a result of the lack of documentation (history) of Black accomplishments. Black History week was founded by Dr. Carter G. Woodson. The purpose of this celebration is to share, not only Black accomplishments but Black heritage, in an effort to educate/ inform the uninformed and help foster unity in the community.  Although the celebrations have been attended mostly by Black Americans, it is for everyone. This year marks the 23rd year of celebrations in the City of Moreno Valley. We solicit the participation of all the residents and surrounding areas. Please come out and enjoy the parade and share in the festivities.

The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. at Cottonwood & Fredrick.  8th Annual Parade. 23rd Annual Black History Celebration. 7th Annual Martin Luther King Jr.  Celebration.
