This episode is dedicated to the memory of Emmett Till.
I recently had the opportunity to visit the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. It is an amazing museum that you must see if you ever visit the area. You'll need tickets to get in, but they are free.
Emmett Till was a 14 year old African-American boy who was killed for whistling at a white woman in a store in Money, Mississippi in August of 1955. He qwould be lynched fof this by her susband and his half-brother.
His mother found the courage to display his badly disfigured body during his funeral to show the world what racism had done to her son. This act led to the modern Civil Rights movement.
Mamie Till-Mobley's grief was the spark plug that forced America to deal with racism head-on.
I take a look at my own life and try to figuer out if there is anything positive that has come from my own grief.
This weeks call to action: Look back at your ow grief and determine if there is Something positive that you can take away from it.
