On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morning, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

Black youth both young men and women are being

A local's perspective on the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.

A local's perspective on the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.

This is the 100th Anniversary of the spectacular Spring festival in our nation’s capital.  On March 26, 1912, exactly 3,020 cherry trees in twelve varieties (mostly Yoshino cherry trees) arrived from Japan.   The next day, on March 27, 1912, Mrs. Helen Herron Taft, the First Lady, accepted Japan’s generous gift of natural and everlasting beauty.  Mrs. Taft and Viscoutess Chinda, the wife of the Japanese Ambassador, planted two Yoshino cherry trees on the northern bank of the Tidal Basin.  These two original trees still stand on the bank and at the base of these trees is a large bronze plaque which commemorates the occasion.  In 1912, there were only a few people who witnessed the acceptance of Japan’s gift.  But, this year, our nation’s capital will be flooded with tourists from all other the world who will desire to share the excitement of this 100th Anniversary celebration.

Hazing/Bullying: Duality of Physical Violence

The issue of Hazing and Bullying has created a new level
of concern for parents sending their children to college.
The elevated incidence of injuries and harm (physical,
emotional, psychological) and deaths of those falling victim
to the violence that is the result of inflicting suffering and
pain upon another person.

Bullying has many forms from verbal harassment, sexual
assaults (and favors), cyber threats and physical attacks.  
All used to create an environment of fear, trepidation and
compliance to the wishes of the tormentor(s). Hazing is
the execution of psychological manipulation, physical
violence and emotional persuasion to create conditions
of servitude (serving those who execute hazing) and
creating circumstances of acceptance for violence and
humiliation to gain entrance into an organization.

The lethality of words can create psychological and
emotional damage that can span years in a person’s
life. Creating damage to a person’s inner being,
their self-confidence, self-awareness and even the
ability to appreciate their own self-worth.
