OUR BLACK FAMILY PLEDGE
BY: Louise Massey Merrill
Family is a very powerful word. A word that brings laughter, joy, pain and sorrow to all. Families go through many trials and tribulations, but as long as we have our family and our faith, we can continue to stay strong.
We are the descendants and images of those who have come before us. We are the vision of their dreams and the pride of their hearts. We are the hope of the next generation who's future is filled with choice. We are family.
