Oct 2, 2014 1

By Connie Alsobrook


October is here and many people, celebrities, companies are “Going Pink” in honor of Breast Cancer Month.  The Good News Notebook found a gentleman by the name of Dwight Pope from Tennessee Valley that was doing something totally different.  He create an event hosted by a group of men to honor women that were affect by Breast Cancer, named, “Men in Honor of Women in the Fight against Breast Cancer.”

gnn in her honor photo shootPope was his mother’s caretaker for 3 years when she was battling the disease. “It drains you emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially on every level,” stated Pope. During the fight

Pope said he learned a lot when caring for his mother such as, using the energy should be focused on people suffering from cancer, not the cancer itself.  “It offers us the opportunity as human beings to show compassion for each other, to listen to each other, and be willing to care and uplift each other.” said Pope

The Genesis of the event was given to Dwight Pope, It’s an event that will totally be produced by men, décor, food, hosting, entertainment, affirmations. Men will buy all tickets as a gift for women that they want to affirm. The event will focus less on Breast Cancer as a whole and more on Honoring and affirming our women.
Throughout history our women have shouldered the burden as backbone of our communities, they often carry so much pain to keep their loved ones from worry. Men for the most part have been silent in their struggle; we support them in non-verbal ways, but they need to hear from us, they need us to open up about how we feel about them.
This event will serve as a formal acknowledgement to all of them, our Mothers , Grandmothers, Aunts, Sisters and friends that we are here, we see their sacrifice and we Love them.

“IN HER NAME” is an Affirmation Event produced strictly by Men in Honor of Women in the Fight against Breast Cancer. It will take place Sunday October 12th 4-6p.m at Bob Harrison Senior Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Honoring Sept. 11th… Never Forget

Sep 11, 2014 0

As we reflect on this historic date, let’s also choose to restore our faith in those who keep our Nation safe.  There is no better way to honor the memory of 09-11-01 than to honor the men and women who serve this country.  Make a commitment on this auspicious date to serve our Veterans of each of the Armed Services in a new & innovative way.

Whether they served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coastal Guard, or National Guard, our safety and protection depends on a special set of women and men have proven their willingness to give their lives for the citizens of the United States of America.  Now, it’s our turn.

Here are few ideas to serve our Veterans as we commemorate 09-11-01:

1.  Simple… Say “Thank You for Your Service.”  If you notice an Active Duty Soldier or an experienced Verteran, then nothing warms their hearts more than this simple 5 word statement.  Try it.  Let our Editor at GNN know what you discovered.  You will be amazed!

2.  Give…  Find a non-profit or charity (aka Veteran Support Service organization) who supports a specific cause.  Whether it is Wounded Warriors (www.USO.org), AMVETS (www.AMVETS.org), or little known VSO’s like Hearts for Veterans LLC in Atlanta, Georgia.

3.  Volunteer… Each of these VSO’s have events throughout the event, not just on Sept. 11th.  Perhaps, Commit to volunteer your time to Veterans Empowerment Organization by clicking this link (http://bit.ly/1lXPtUz).

 

THE MIRACLES OF 9/11

Amid the disaster, we need to NEVER FORGET that there were miracles and GoodNews that occurred as well.   Let’s take the story of the last World Trade Center survivor, Genelle Guzman-MacMillian.  Genelle tell her story in her new book, Angel in the Rubble: The Miraculous Rescue of 9/11’s Last Survivor.  The Port Authority employee and author, says that it is the ordeal of reliving how two hijacked planes 10 years ago sent the World Trade Center crumbling, burying her co-workers and herself beneath piles of rubble. As Guzman-McMillan lay buried alive for nearly 30 hours, the screams she heard in the darkness around her soon faded away. She was alone, she thought, and could think of only one thing to do – cry out to God.


FOR MORE INFORMATION:

Consider review the Veteran Service Organization (VSO) Directory in detail for additional opportunities.  In this official publication by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (http://www.va.gov/vso), you will find VSO’s and connect with their missions that will affect you beyond 9/11 to the ones who serves us so well… OUR ACTIVE DUTY SOLDIERS AND OUR VETERANS!
