Hi Betty,
Congratulations on your nomination. Quickly, I want to thank you for the whole "No Pain/No Gain" songs. It took me a minute to appreciate the "wisdom" inside the lyrics; growing-up emotionally, allowed me to see: had it not been for folks in Sourthern communities lending hands to help families with double-digit #'s of kids our community could be worse off that we are. For that lesson, you also should be recognized during Black History Month, and I mean that. I wish I could say more, but just know you've got my vote. Take care and God Bless. Sincerely,
Kitty2pat.
