Snowmeggedon to Sensational Spring

My first winter in Cambridge and we're hit with the storm of biblical proportions. 

What's even more ironic is the fact that the eight foot snow fall record was broken...by an inch or two. 

Nevertheless we made it through and now you can share a moment in history with me by having an exclusive look at my year in review. 

Actually, I haven't been here a whole year yet, but after this winter, it think I have something to talk about.. 

So, are you ready to reminisce? 

Tune in to BeLIVE Tuesday at 6pm on Channel 9,, sit back and enjoy!

Jonathan Daniels Freedom Rider from Massachusetts Murdered for the Cause

Because I  am from the Maryland area, I watch events unfold in Baltimore here in Cambridge with sorrowful objectivism. I always hope for the best in mankind, but my heart is heavy for yet another mother that mourns her son. 

The weather was perfect for the launch of the Y2Y Harvard Square initiative to eradicate youth homelessness in Cambridge introducing a duplicable template.

I attended out of respect, I left in awe"

It was minus ten degrees in Cambridge on this particular night (at least it felt like it was). It was February and the start of Black History Month. So I attended the book signing to support the African American featured in the book who had just turned 90 years old. If nothing else, I would attend out of respect, right?

Legislative issues lie in wait to be addressed, we all agree. But Senator Pat Jehlen believes in the importance of taking a moment of pause to refresh and reflect over food & fellowship. Every year, Senator Patricia Jehlen opens her home to her constituents to sample her homemade soups. The event is free and open to the public. Medford, Somerville, Winchester, and Cambridge constituents are only expected to bring a hearty appetite. However, in the spirit of hospitality, most don't want to come empty-handed.

Jennifer Yanco, author of Misremembering Dr. King approached the subject of who really cares about remembering Dr. King from an interesting perspective by sharing a diagram of Dr. Kings approval rating in 1964 compared to today. Oddly enough, despite his approval rating being very low 2% in 1964, 98% of the population were keenly aware and knowledgeable of his message and his mission as opposed to today where his approval rating is 98% but less than 2% know of major issues that were the impetus behind the civil rights movement.
