America had and needs to return to a free college program in order to continue on her path to greatness. The Ellis Island immigrant and the greatest generation were poor people who could not afford to pay for college, they came to a country that helped smart people become successful. It is sad that the sons of these greatest generational members, fight so hard to prevent others from receiving the same benefits. When you fight against free college, stop and ask yourself, how did my father make it, and stop changing the reality of the past. When America does the right thing, funds come to make correctness possible. Ask not how will free colleges be paid for, ask what can I do to help this country that has given me life.

America had a free college education system, during the 1950’s I attended this system as a pre medical student in The City College of New York City. New York City, at that time, also had an outstanding public education system. The public schools in New York City […]

Harlem today stands as a symbol of America, the land of diversity and transformation. Million dollars homes and high rise apartment buildings attract people from all over the country, black and white, participating in this experiment of God for His people on earth. Man can and must live together in peace and harmony, it is the secret to the future. Expensive high end stores now seek to be part of this great excitement. In my youth and post depression days, Harlem still had the excitement, which continues to make it great and a mecca for all who wish to touch the heart and diversity of America. I sing Harlem it is the place of my birth and salvation. It was from its warm shelters that I learned the strength to survive and the courage to excell.

Harlem on my mind     Harlem is not some mythical place. It is not the battleground to fight all the battles of injustice. It is not that sacred streets where imaginary people believe imaginary things happened. Harlem is not the seat of capital for over 40 […]

Research and Development Learning Centers started in 1975, by a Columbia University graduate who was interested in providing for the needs of youth living in middle class America who needed positive activities and mentoring. Churches and community centers were encouraged to address the needs of these middle class children. The goverment was already addressing the needs of the poor and the challenged, but what about the other youth? Today churches and community centers are encouraged to open its doors to American youth, mentor them into adulthood, provide activities that will help them in areas of STEM and social development. America needs all of her youth, and she needs churches to become welcoming centers for youth, with opportunities to improve academic and social skills. Churches need to make Christ a living example of how to love God and love our neighbor, and sometimes the neighbor we need to love are our own youth. We love each other and together we can make America into the loving family of God she is called to be. Each church should be a learning center and a drop in center for all who seek God’s love.

Drop By For God, when and where did the process begin? Before becoming a public school teacher, I planted Learning centers in communities.   The question is when, where and how did I learn to be an effective teacher? When? Graduating from college, I made the decision […]
