Wow! It's Labor Day already? This summer certainly has gone by quickly! School has begun for some, and will start this week for many others. I hope that your summer was a great one, and that you have enjoyed your newsletters and BellaOnline, and the African American Culture site. I've certainly have had a wonderful time. And, I hope we both will continue to do so!
Many Blessings to you and yours. And please have a wonderful and safe Holiday weekend!
