Michelle Obama Stimulates Black Women

“If you’re walking down the right path and you’re walking to keep walking, eventually you will make progress.” These inspiring words come from the current President of the US, Barack Obama. Living up to spirit of being the President’s wife and First Lady of America, Michelle Obama, instigated a sense of heroism and nobility among black women at Black Girls Rock Event, happened in New Jersey, last week. It is an annual event that honors women of color from all disciplines and uplift individuals who find it difficult to remain positive and stand against color prejudice.

Though the evening was packed with several big names from the entertainment industry such as Will Smith, Jill Scott, Estelle, and others, Lady Obama brought the most driving momentum to the stage.    While educating and enlightening black women, she celebrated their dusky, bold looks and the grace they all carry.

Obama spent some mirth moments with the black audiences present at the event. She entreated young black girls to be fearless and recognize their strengths. She also mentioned, "No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, you are beautiful.” Further stimulating the black beauties, Michelle said, “I am so proud of you. My husband, your president, is so proud of you."  Presenting an illustration of anti-colorism (discrimination on the basis of skin color), Obama dressed in an off-shoulder snowy white outfit with some silver sparkles dangling from her ears. It was a splendid fusion of black and white though. She gracefully spread the message, “Black girls rock!”

Likewise, there were many such thrilling and sentimental stories and speeches voiced out on the stage, all paying tribute and rewarding the persistence of black women. Honestly, there is nothing as color bigotry. None other than our President and his wife can prove this fact as they see everyone equal and firmly advocate the black girls to gain right education and fame. What’s your say on this?

Share your thoughts about biasing on the basis of color? Are black people still denied of their civil rights?

Ideas for Celebrating St. Patrick's Day

Named after the patron saint of Ireland, it celebrates the arrival of Christianity in the country as well as the Irish culture and heritage.

Know the History:

Learning a little about the story behind the grand celebration would make it more meaningful and fun. So explore the history behind the festival. You can search the web to find the details. Sites like National Geographic and History channel have plenty of material to read. For a quick overview, here is brief about the festival.

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland has been credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. He was born to a British family but was kidnapped by Irish raiders. Sold to slavery at an early age, he turned to God to endure his time. After six years as a slave, he escaped, returned home and became a priest.

Finishing his religious learning, he came to Ireland, became the second bishop and started spreading Christianity. St. Patrick's teaching and methods were unique and thus widely accepted by the indigenous people. He included Christian teachings with native culture. For example, St. Patrick used a shamrock to explain the Trinity and included the religious symbol of Sun to Christian cross, thus creating a new symbol of faith widely known now as Celtic cross.

Although, St. Patrick's Day has been observed as a religious festival in Ireland over thousands of years, it was only after 1970 that the day became a symbol of Irish heritage.
