HHH and Heros....

Good Morning! Glad you could make it here.

With Memorial Day coming up Yesterday's Hip Hop for Unity they chose Heros as the theme, each DT member talked about their Heros...there was amazing stories from everyone.
For the customers who chose to post Hip hop hangover posts on friday mornings we also decided to post a Hero post and talk about OUR heros too.
I couldnt think of any one Hero there are so many people I admire, All the Men and Woman in the Military, Barack Obama, JFK, Martin Luther King, Angelina Joile, Maya Angelou, Mother Theresa...etc...
But the unsung heros who everyday make me in awe are All the Women out there... Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Friends, Wives, Grandmothers, Aunts....
I am humbled everyday by what different woman all over the world do to make their lives better and their childrens lives better and the lives of others better. Our ability to Love, to be kind, to care for each other, to be there when needed...
All woman out there YOU are my HERO...I appreciate what YOU do to make this world a better place and for being there for us all! THANK YOU!
Here are some quotes
"How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!" Maya Angelou
"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded." Maya Angelou
"As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world." Virginia Woolf
