There are always a few warriors in a battle who stand out and are worthy of observing and imitating. In the United States Congress, of these Obama years, there are two Democratic Congress persons who I admire. One is James Clyburn of South Carolina, and the other is Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

I heard a conservative politician tell a sick joke this past week. He said someone wanted to figure a way to keep Black folks down. He then said that they were given a gift to make it happen. The gift was public education. I am convinced that public education has many problems, but it is up to parents to make up the differences to try to equalize the educational experience.

In Nigeria, one of Africa's largest countries, 223 girls (and counting) have been abducted from their boarding school while they were sleeping. As the story goes, a terrorist group called Boko Haram entered with guns and kidnapped the girls in the middle of the night. After taking the girls, the group burned down the school. Boko Haram apparently means western education for girls is forbidden.

At church on Easter Sunday, my wife and I noticed a child about one year old clapping her tiny hands and dancing to the lively music. As the week went on, I couldn't help but think about that child and the fact that she has a few lessons to learn, but starting by learning to love church is the right place to begin, because getting a start in the wrong place can be damaging.

I keep a picture of the two teams who played in the 1924 Black Baseball League World Series. The teams were the Kansas City Monarchs and the Hilldale Giants. The Black Baseball leagues are one of the many results of race segregation in America. The leagues history extends back to just after the American Civil War when Black baseball players could not play in the so-called traditional White leagues, so they would form their own leagues.
