INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS BY AFRICAN AMERICANS



I hope these wonderful quotations by African Americans and these images of Tacoma I caught watching from Orton Hall's balcony this Sunday morning will brighten your day.

Happiness is like perfume; you can't pour it on somebody without getting a few drops on yourself.
James Van Der Zee, Photographer 1886-1983



Have you grown to the point where you can unflinchingly stand up for the right, for that which is honorable, honest, truthful, whether it makes you popular or unpopular? Have you grown to the point where absolutely and unreservedly you make truth and honor your standard of thinking and speaking?
Booker T. Washington, 1856-1915



Any encouraging words you have for us....

Enjoy this video of the blossoming tree and the skyline of Tacoma
