Warning labels are fire alarms that alert parents to content that could potentially damage the character of their child. Labels appear on media materials from CDs, DVDs, Games, etc. Introduced back in 1985, warning labels provides accountability between parents and the entertainment industry. However, there’s a bigger threat that parents ignore on a regular basis!
Nichelle Nichols is a legendary African American actress who played the role of Lieutenant Uhura on the hit T.V. show Star Trek. She stated, “Science is not a boy’s game, it’s not a girls game. It’s everyone’s game. It’s about where we are and where we’re going”. Her role was not only a breakthrough for African Americans on T.V., but she represented the entire female population in the race for S.T.E.M. related careers. In fact, her statement captures the heartbeat of America and its quest to encourage youth to prepare for careers in science and innovation. A noble goal indeed, but we cannot ignore the fact that America might be a leader in innovation, but falling behind in advancing the human soul to improve our society.
With over seven billion people on the planet, we all have a hunger to find more purpose in life. It doesn’t matter if it’s a personal or professional endeavor; purpose is the invisible gold that causes us to perform worthwhile activity. It’s the symphony of the human spirit that causes the human race to move in harmony, but somehow the human orchestra continues to play different sheets of music. What suppose to sound like music to our ears sounds like a composition from hell.
Can you believe another year is about to escape into the annals of time? It seems like yesterday we were welcoming 2015 and today packing its bags for the grand departure. Perhaps you had an extraordinary year, or maybe it was ordinary and you can’t wait for 12:01 a.m. January 1st, 2016? Regardless of where you are on the spectrum of achievement, the reality is that 2016 is knocking on the door of your dreams and it’s screaming, ready or not here I come. If there’s any consolation about the end of every year, we should be thankful that we have an opportunity to reflect on our goals to see what we’ve accomplished for the year. However, the last thing we desire to do is remain stuck in a cycle of extraordinary expectations with ordinary achievements.
For years, America has been a beacon of hope for people around the world. It has been viewed as the land of opportunity where dreams are made a reality. Stories abound where people from all over the world have crossed our borders with nothing, and transformed their personal net-worth into a legacy for their family. America is one of the only nations where Jews have been able to find a safe haven without persecution. What’s amazing about our great country is that even though Jews and all ethnic groups have prospered tremendously in America, we have managed to become the number one nation in producing Egyptian Slaves!
