Savoy Elementary is one of eight in the country earmarked by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities as a “turnaround” school one in dire need of help. For three years, each of the eight is “adopted” by a well-known artist (in Savoy’s case, the actress Kerry Washington) and receives a tremendous funding boost to institute arts and other programs ($14.7 million for the eight).
It can be the hardest
It is often the toughest
It can also be the best gift
To give others
It is a gift worth giving
A gift worth receiving
Time and time again
It is the gift to give
It is the gift to have
It is the gift to choose

This week I must say I am not sure at all about what I am posting...I came up with a short story, and a poem.
At 13, her lips were full and scarlet red. The perfect lips for her angelic face, even mother thought on several occasions that she had red lipsticks on...but not her, her lips were natural, no enhancements, and no make ups.
If only she had known that a lifetime of kissing and making out with frogs who could never be princes would leave her lips busted, pale and bruised, Angelina would have kept her lips to herself.
They say time flies…and it is absolutely true. It seems like just yesterday I was writing my post for the 1st of June, and now June has come to an end. Thank God!
What an amazing journey this continues to be, an amazing journey of personal growth, self-discovery, and improvement. I am no doubt glad that I succumbed to my inner being and started blogging.
