Grace and peace be unto you
First celebrated in 1926, the week was expanded into Black History Month in 1976 as part of the nation's bicentennial. Each year, the U.S. President proclaims February as National African American History Month. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the leading causes of death for African Americans.
In the famous words of Joe Madison, "So what are you going to do about it?" If you know that you have family history then start young with your kids. Make them aware of why exercise and eating right is important. This us not something for the school system.
Given our present governmental climate we might not have health care or extension services to help bridge gaps in our income. So it is important that we begin to get on top of our well-being.
And as always remember to. . . live Blessed
