On This Day In TCXPI History - A Self Reflection (2013)



On This Day In TCXPI History - 24/7/365
As I begin the last month The Chinue X Project (TCXPI) of sharing African And African American Historical Facts, I reflect on what this project has meant to me. 
First and foremost, it gave me the opportunity to research daily the contributions that Our Ancestors have made in the struggle for Liberation, Existence, Equality, and Justice. This was MY Daily Affirmation of - Where I had come from, Who I had come from, and How I would continue to Honor and Respect My African Heritage. I looked forward to rising each morning to research new and insightful facts On My People - the good, the bad, and the ugly - and sharing it with the world.
Second, seeing the responses - good, bad, ugly - inspired me to continue on. I realized early on that My People had been Mis-Educated for so long through no fault of their own. I sought to "Bring Forth" the Truth Of Our Story and to Critically Challenge that Mis-Education.
Finally, to have FB has a conduit to disseminate this knowledge, and have my FB family, friends, and others "Share and Comment" on the posts, was confirmation that I was reaching and connecting with my people. 
I have forged some wonderful friendships and collaborations during this year and I am so appreciative and grateful. 
I look forward to what 2014 will bring for The Chinue X Project (TCXPI)

Children Learn What They Live
By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.


 If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

 If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.


 If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.


 If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.


 If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.


 If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.


 If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.


 If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.


 If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.


 If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.


 If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.


 If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.


 If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.


 If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.


 If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.


 If children live with fairness, they learn justice.


 If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.


 If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.


 If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
