As it's Black History Month in the States, I thought I would post a link to my recent blog on Healing Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome. If you have been following my blogs for awhile, you know I have blogged on this subject before.
Plus click here to download my ebook, Why We Need to Heal.
Part of reparations involves repair work. Nobody else can do this for us - we have to do it ourselves. This is an urgent matter. We MUST focus on our healing. Regards, Zhana less

Young Black Love
Is different from any other.
For the young lady, the young man,
It’s a different sense.
A feeling only some really experience.
Young Black Love is natural,
It’s not planned or pre-arranged.
It happens at moment’s notice,
And at times, ends just as fast.
Words to my teacher peers, had an interesting discussion with my students about weight, diet and exercise. Please encourage your students to ask questions and even if it is personal remember they are relying on you for honest answers. Had a young lady ask me why my belly was so big. This was NOT in a disrespectful manner but a honest question. She even said she was not being disrespectful, so remember to keep it real and not personal. The discussion centered on physical metabolism and exercise. I do not get a lot of exercise and this grew into a great discussion on aging and exercise. Be patient and not personal.
