We all know that giving is a part of living. Each year, everyone looks forward to Thanksgiving Day to give thanks for the many blessings that they have received throughout the year. Thanksgiving is a time for family gatherings and stuffing our bellies with turkeys, stuffing, and homemade pumpkin or potato pie.
Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children. It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the matter.”

Father figures have important roles in our lives …
They teach us to be strong and how to survive.
Father figures raise their sons from boys to men …
They protect their daughters until they become warrior women.
In recognition of Father’s Day, Black PR Wire has launched the month long campaign, entitled “Father Figures” whereby we honor and recognize African American men who have made a profound impact in the lives of hundreds of people on a local, statewide, national and even global level.
They help to shape us, mold us, and nurture us. They are the backbone of nearly every family, in virtually every area of our lives. As we salute these astonishing people who sacrifice daily in order to provide for us, let’s be mindful to take the time to say “Thank You,” as we hold dearly to their words of wisdom, inspiration and hope.
