Dearest Online Family and Friends: 

I hope all is well with you and yours; and I hope you are preparing to make Father's day the loveliest and happiest.

Indeed another special time of year is upon us!  It is the Celebration and Honoring of our Fathers, Grandfathers, Step Fathers, Father figures in our lives who are mentors and role models, Mothers who are performing the roles of a Father (either single mothers or even those who are married,) and also our Father-In-Laws.  We absolutely honor and salute all of them!

Fathers are that brave, strong person in our lives who are our protectors, rescuers, and our mentors.  They instill values that will carry us through life.  This powerful man is also our savior…our safety net; the one that teaches us, and shows us the way to becoming successful in our lives, and with our families.  This lovely man we call Father is a courageous disciplinarian…the one who keeps us on a positive pathway through life (“on the straight and narrow”).  And without a doubt he leaves an awesome imprint …an imprint that grids our lives with strength, humility and integrity.

As I ponder on today’s society, it is disheartening that so many of our youths are growing up without that profound “pillar” of a person in their life.  That strong, wise male figure who encourages, guides, teaches and instill positive values; and most importantly take the time to talk with their young ones (their sons and daughters.)  Gosh, those few things I just mentioned are sooooo very important in a child’s life in our society today; because life in this world especially through the early and important years (of a child growing up) is critical and absolutely “no joke”.

Some of us like myself do have what we call our “pillar” [our fathers]; but our “pillar” has not always been there for us physically, mentally and even financially.   Hummm, as a little girl, I remember my father breaking my heart on numerous occasions; with his unexceptional thought patterns, ignorance, and actions…those always took a lot out of me.  I fondly remember, when he was loving...it was nice; but he would always go back to his craziness after a drink, or two or three or the whole entire bottle; and then some!  Yup, we knew his problem; but it was never looked at as a problem, instead a way of life.  My daddy has never changed; today he is still up to his old ways, just enjoying life (as he calls it;) and perhaps he is; LOL…while he makes everyone around him miserable!  You know…seriously; the relationship I have had with my father, I found I have learned a few valuable lessons.  In fact, I know my brothers have.  Wow, and I have found the love my brothers have for my Father is a different type of love...much stronger.  However, in our own little ways we love and appreciate our Father greatly. 

As I studied my life though; I see there are a few things I would encourage a father to do to be absolutely perfect:

  • look at your child, or each of your children in their eyes and tell them you love them (frequently);
  • make time for them to talk on a regular basis;
  • let them know you are proud of them;
  • give them your blessings;
  • make sure the legacy you leave behind for your children is rich;
  • make sure your virtues are positive and that they shine through brightly to your children
  • look at yourself, and make sure you are the man you would like your son to be; or the man you would like your daughter to marry;
  • make sure that you intentionally and purposefully spend time with your children not only in conversation, but with other things that really matter;
  • encourage them to be all they can be;
  • teach them right from wrong;
  • teach them respect for themselves and others;
  • teach them to be honorable; and
  • show them unconditional LOVE.

With these things in place, the following sad but true statistics [which I can attest to] can surly be defeated!: (1) difficulties/a risk of low school achievement; (2) low involvement in the labor force; (3) early childbearing, (4) and delinquency.  Most importantly, when it comes to boys without fathers the odds are doubled of being incarcerated, they have problems in the area of psychosocial adjustment, and control of aggression.  

As I talk about statistics an important issue came across my desk recently, which I found quite intriguing.  President Barack Obama has launched a Fatherhood Pledge.  The President’s Fatherhood Pledge was established to encourage individuals, especially fathers, to be involved in the lives of their children, and to be positive role models and mentors for children in their lives and communities.  To get all the details about this pledge and to join President Obama's program, plus take this pledge; log on to http://www.fatherhood.gov/pledge

As I bring my thoughts to a close on our Fathers I commend the many Moms among our on-line family, specifically the single Moms who are single by choice or circumstance for having to play both parenting roles in their children’s lives.  I have seen so many of you juggle, sacrifice and work excessively hard to make your children's lives happy and comfortable. You are doing a fantastic job and God Bless you for being that strong individual...that "Pillar".  To our Grandfathers: HAPPY FATHER'S DAY; To the Step Fathers: HAPPY FATHER'S DAY; and to the Mentors who have stepped into many of our youths lives we also wish you a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!  Most importantly, to all our DADS among our on-line family we at Arious truly wish all of you a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY...we wish you an awesome day...one filled with lots of love!!!!!

This is the time to tell your dad how much you love and appreciate him on his special day!!!  Again, to all our on-line fathers we wish you a very happy Father's Day!!!!

A final note to my brother in Trinidad:  You are the epitome of a Father!  Loving, strong, a protector, and a provider; and I love you dearly not only for that, but for being the greatest Father in the world and brother.  You are truly the opposite of our dear daddy.  You are simply the best!  I want you to know I am extremely proud of you, and I love you dearly.  In fact, your daughters; wife; Mom; and Todd, as well as your baby brother Mark (God bless his soul) all love you dearly!!!

TO MY DADDY: HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!  

Finally, even though my Father-In-Law is no longer with us; I must say he was an extremely wonderful man, and a good Father to my husband Todd and his Sister.  We all miss him dearly. Since we know he is looking down upon us from the heavens, we want to wish him a Happy Father's Day too. 

I truly love the words to Will Smith's Song "Just The Two Of Us".  It is the perfect "Father's Day" Musical Tribute to our Fathers.  Check it out by clicking the picture on the left.

Commemorating and Observing Juneteenth!

On Sunday, June 19th, many in America will celebrate "Juneteenth."  [100 hundred and forty-nine years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued and 31 years after the event was first recognized with a sanctioned holiday … [June 19, 1865].  "Juneteenth" is the oldest known celebration of the ending of slavery in America.  It is the date when the last slaves in America were freed.

JUNETEENTH:  June 19th - The National Day of Reconciliation and Healing From The Legacy of Enslavement.  Also known as Emancipation Day, Freedom Day and Jun-Jun.  Whatever name one calls it, the fact is that it is the oldest African-American Observance in the United States where the African-American History and Heritage is observed; which dates back to 1865.  This observance is one of the most important in American History because it commemorates the freedom...the ending of slavery.  This special day is celebrated across the United States on the 3rd Friday of June and is officially recognized as a state holiday in 39 states of the US.  

General Order Number 3: "The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer."

The history is as follows:

  • Abraham Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation on Sept. 22, 1862, with an effective date of Jan. 1, 1863. The problem with that executive order, which set the stage for the abolishment of slavery in North America, was twofold.
  • First, the United States and Confederate States were already engaged in a Civil War that would officially continue for another 2 years and 99 days, with the final shots fired more than two months after that.
  • The second problem was that a slow spreading of news combined with already established cultural patterns meant that no one seemed to pay attention and many slaves were never told or offered freedom.
  • It was on June 18 and 19, 1865, that Union Major General Gordon Granger and his union soldiers (2,000 troops) arrived in Galveston, Texas, to take possession of that state and delivered the news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.  And they begin what would ultimately become a national enforcement of emancipation.
  • Former slaves in Galveston took to the streets in celebration. But the observance of Juneteenth, a blending of the words June and 19th, went largely unnoticed for a century.

Note: This was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.  Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years.  TO CONTINUE READING THE HISTORY AND ALL THE DETAILS ABOUT JUNETEENTH, PLEASE CLICK HERE! (Courtesy of www.Juneteenth.com).

As we celebrate this important and historical day "Juneteenth;" we must take time to really reflect, study, and learn so that we can:

  • "REALIZE - Those early freedmen had choices to make and obstacles to surmount. To stay or to go? To forgive or to resent? To look forward or back? How does one move on from a trauma like slavery? How to obtain an education, learn to make a living, participate in society as a free and equal member? The scars persist and the questions remain for later generations."

  • "RECOGNIZE - Juneteenth marked the beginning of a new phase in African-American history, when emancipated slaves along with their former owners began, slowly and haltingly, to travel the long road to equality and integration. Many along the way, on both sides of the racial divide, have questioned the value of one or both of those ideals. Slavery was a defining feature of the early decades of our republic; dealing with its aftermath became the challenge of each generation."

  • "REFLECT TO RENEW - Even as we acknowledge the evils of slavery and the ravages it wrought upon our society, and pay tribute to those who suffered with no recompense, Juneteenth is also a time to strengthen our bonds of unity and to offer support to one another. This is especially true in the areas of economic opportunity and the opening of institutional and societal doors to guarantee fair and equitable treatment for all."

  • "REJOICE - Juneteenth celebrations in Texas and nearby states started soon after the fateful proclamation, but the early ones were low-key, simple affairs held on church grounds or on the outskirts of cities. Emancipation Park in Houston was the first public land purchased specifically for Juneteenth events; other tracts of land, also called Emancipation Park, followed in other cities, as did Booker T. Washington Park in Mexia, Texas. Years went by and attendance at Juneteenth commemorations declined, but the civil rights movement of the 1960s brought about a resurgence of interest (as well as some opposition by younger blacks who felt the day was a reminder of servitude and discrimination). Large gatherings began to be held in such places as Minneapolis and Milwaukee."

 



 

Continue Celebrating Caribbean-American Heritage!

In the 109th Congress both the House and Senate unanimously approved H.Con.Res.71, a measured introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland), on June 5, 2006, President George W. Bush issued a proclamation designating June as Caribbean - American Heritage Month.  This proclamation acknowledges the growing political and economic influence of the Caribbean Diaspora and its importance and contribution to the development of the cultural diversity of the United States.

Thanks to so many of you for continually sharing you news and events about "Caribbean-American Heritage Month" (CAHM").  Most importantly, I thank you immensely for sending me feedback about my writings regarding the Karel Mc Intosh Blog “Caribbean-Americans – A Case of Identity.” Glad that many of you found the article to be interesting; and the consensus was CAHM” (1) gets very little exposure, (2) it receives no visibility, and (3) absolutely needs to be exposed in a wider range across the US and beyond. 

For this 3rd week in June please continue with your celebrations of National Caribbean-Heritage Month.  Continue with dedicating the rest of this month to Caribbean-American Heritage.  Yes...please continue celebrating, recognizing, paying tribute and commemorating Caribbean-American Heritage by practicing what is listed below (which I shared with this entire month so far).   Also, share your Caribbean-Heritage with a friend, colleague, your co-workers; and anyone who would listen.  More awareness must be brought to Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

  • Celebrate the great contributions of Caribbean-Americans to the economic, social and cultural landscape of the United States.

  • Recognize the many contributions of Caribbean immigrants and their decedents to the well-being of America.

  • Celebrate the historic relationships between the people of the Caribbean and the people of the United States.

  • Pay tribute to the common culture and bonds of friendship that unite the United States and the Caribbean countries. (The vibrancy and hopefulness due to the talent, faith and values of Caribbean-Americans)

  • Commemorate Caribbean-American heritage, history, culture and contributions to the United States.

  • Recognize how Caribbean-Americans enriches society by being leaders in government, arts, entertainment, sports, fashion, poetry, theatre, in businesses and much more.

Obama ~~~ PLEASE CLICK HERE!

Events continue to take place in cities all across the United States commemorating Caribbean-American Heritage.  As I stated last week; although, I received lots of events from folks in different states (as in previous years,) this year I simply did not have a free moment to accumulate and list/create a calendar of all what I have been sent.  Therefore, I strongly suggest that you (1) log into Google, and do a search for “Caribbean-Amerian Heritage Month events [in your state;] and many of the events in your state should be listed.  Additionally, (2) go ahead and CLICK HERE to log into the official website of the Caribbean-American Heritage Month “The Calendar” to learn about many of the events taking place.

Celebrating Black Music!  

blackmusicmonth-Main.gif (22114 bytes)Black Music Month…Please continue celebrating Black Music!  

Woohoo,..by the way, I got some fantastic feedback regarding my thoughts, observations and analysis on the state of my Caribbean music (in my area) "The Market for Caribbean Music Crisis" (in my area.)  Oh...dear, I would love to share them with you, but I am beyond the deadline regarding my time of distribution.  Therefore, I am unable to elaborate this week...I will have to hold off on sharing these interesting comments with you , but I will absolutely pick back up on this important issue in an upcoming E-Newsletter.  

Remember this month is the "time to recognize the many black music genres throughout time such as BlackMusicMonth-1.jpg (16618 bytes)Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop, Neo-Soul, Reggae, and Soca.  Additionally, during this time we celebrate the contributions black singers, composers, writers, producers and musicians have made in the history of music." 

During this month of this 33rd year of celebrating Black Music; we must continue to reflect on the generations of BlackMusicMonth-3.jpg (21448 bytes)African-American, and Caribbean recording artists and musicians, songwriters, etc. from around the nation who came before us with their great talents and contributions. We must remember it was they who paved the way for the many talented artists today.  Whether they were fighting to get paid for a gig, or on the battlefield with record companies and radio stations regarding getting more exposure and recognition for their work.  During this month we must take the time to commend them on their fight/s; and to pay tribute to their tenacity.  Additionally, this is the month we must show them how worthy they are.

"FlashPoint" - Presented by Hollis Lashley

 

Be inspired and Motivated to increase your Spiritual Energy.  

Hello All & the Arious Family:

This week's focus is on the Art of being an M.C. So many of us have forgotten our roots that we are apt to become annoyed at what is just fun, and a way of communicating our cultural lifestyle. Hope that this reminds us of our beautiful cultural heritage, particularly around this carnival time.

One Light!

Thanks,

Hollis Lashley, Author, Gifts From the Heart

 

Be inspired and Motivated to increase your Spiritual Energy.  

"Cultural Awareness"

I want to explain about this culture

To you who not from the Caribbean

We are a Warm and Fun Loving people

We give jokes but we are not mean

 

Every calypso show have an MC

Whose job is to entertain,

To introduce all the participants

Give a "lil picong" now and again.

 

Don’t get vex if they sing about you,

Some ideas serious and some are fun,

Some are plain, some have double meanings

Some will escape you when they done.

 

Notice we have the judges

Who give points for presentation

Lyrics, appearance, if you on or off key,

Also the crowd participation.

 

Don’t get vex and threaten to shoot me

As a man a few years ago,

If you don’t understand, ask somebody,

Have some fun as you enjoy the show.

 

There is a whole lot of difference

Between Fatigue and mauvais lang,

If you understand the expression

You don’t need to start kankalang

 

Trinbago and the Caribbean culture

Full up with laughter and joy

You come to hear some calypso,

Don’t get vex if I say “Mih Boy”

 

Expect some ole talk and picong

But don’t take it personally

If you know you have a big belly

Stay in the back, so I wouldn’t see.

 

Sit back, relax, enjoy the atmosphere,

Meet friends, say hello to them,

Make sure you really enjoy the evening,

Then go back home to face your problem.

 

Sometimes I will be talking serious,

Sometimes is fatigue and trash,

Let me welcome you all this evening,

And remember your MC is Flash.
