Again, thanks for
far this month (November) has been a full one all
around. It’s been filled with celebrations and awareness of
important issues and causes. Although, I have
highlighted a few of these significant issues throughout

few others. (Other issues that November
is set aside to bring awareness to.)

Adoption Awareness Month - November is
set aside to raise awareness about the adoption of
children and youth from foster care. Further it raises
public awareness about the approximately 500,000 of
children and youth waiting/living in foster care

Epilepsy Awareness Month. November is
National Epilepsy Awareness Month, and 2009 marks the
40th anniversary of this important designation. There
are approximately 2.5 million Americans with epilepsy
(characterized by recurrent, unprovoked
seizures). For many, the biggest problem they
face, besides seizures, is society's negative
attitudes about the condition. Each year the Epilepsy
Foundation presents a public education campaign about
seizure disorders, first aid, acceptance and

the month of November we honor the extraordinary
contributions and sacrifices of our nation’s
military families Army families of Active,
Guard, Reserve, survivors, veterans, and retirees are
giving back in a time of need and sustain and support
the Soldiers who defend our Nation. Army Families are
Army Strong. Throughout our history, the
steadfast support of military families has always been
a source of inspiration. /They have faced the
special challenges of long deployments, family
separations and frequent relocations with great
courage and resolve. In doing so, their selfless
dedication has directly contributed to the mission
readiness of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines,
Coast Guardsmen and Merchant Marines. For

((501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization), held at Zanzibar on
the Waterfront in DC on Nov. 14th (Produced and Directed
by Mr. Keith

impressed with the talent I witnessed at this
exceptional event, and my experience of judging these
talented teens was quite difficult, but purposeful
We were treated
to special performances by several local young artists
and special guests, who entertained us to the
fullest. I was very moved by the electrifying
performance of Rashida Jolley, a young Harpist
and fantastic singer. Ms. Jolly recently appeared
on the nationally syndicated NBC show "America's
Got Talent". Local dance group Beat Ya
Feet Kings and Queen was outstanding as well (They
recently appeared on the syndicated "America's Best
Dance Crew". Additionally, we were graced by
(1) the lovely ladies of MAIN GIRL who rocked the
house; (2) local singer and judge Mahoganee
who took the stage and sang a lovely song - a tribute to her
mother, as well as (3) artists FACE and MAIR.
Finally, local Hip Hop artists OVER TYME and
MARLOW closed out the entertainment with their
hit "Me and my Skateboard"
The entire show
was so incredible, and well directed; and the
contestants were really very good. I would like to
say congratulations to First Place winners Shannon Hayes
and Deja Briggmon; 2nd place winner Ms. Keziah
John-Paul who was my favorite; 3rd place winner Sherae
Smith; and 4th place winner Jesse Thomas.
Additionally, congratulations to rapper Acurah White (Ms
