Greetings On-Line Family
The end of the month is upon
us and Easter is a week away, isn't it amazing how quickly the
year is "flying" by?
Now that we are at the
end of March the month long celebration of recognizing,
highlighting and honoring women and their accomplishments
throughout history comes to an end as well, but I cannot
close out this segment without honoring a wonderful woman here
locally who I admire for her unbelievable strength.
This woman came into my life
some years ago and she made it a point to get to know me, my
husband, the many around us and the community at large. She is the sweetest and
quite a delightful woman, but the most honest and serious/stern person I
ever met. She is all about business, heads up her own
non-profit organization, and when it comes to
working and helping out in the community, she is always
there...especially for me. I speak about this
because of my experience with her, you see during my time with the
Caribbean Carnival Committee here locally, for every event or project I
handled, she was there for me even before I asked. Not to
mention the many advice she openly, honestly and freely gave me
during this time. I think now, had I listened to her, I
would have had a much smoother "road" with the
committee, and she never lets me forget about my stubbornness.
Anyway, enough about my relationship with her. This woman,
Beverlee Dawkins is just a wonderful Woman!!!!
10 & 1/2 months ago Ms.
Dawkins endured something no one would ever want to experience, and
her life was turned "upside down", to her it seemed
her whole world suddenly stopped (and clearly if you were in her
position yours would stop too). You see, Ms. Dawkins son
Colin (in his early 20's)
was shot, and the gun shot wound was to his head. This
young man (Colin) is a very nice gentleman, full of life, full
of goals and doing everything to make it in life, and most
importantly trying to make his mom proud and happy about his
accomplishments. Colin and his mom were very close,
actually they were friends, so there is nothing Colin felt
uncomfortable telling his mom; nor was there anything Ms.
Dawkins would not have known about her son.
Therefore, Ms. Dawkins is at a loss for why her son got
shot. However, if you know anything about Prince Georges
County, Maryland (where they live), then you know how bad the
"black on black" crime and "youth on
youth" crime is in this area. Unfortunately Colin
became a victim of this senseless epidemic.
God has a plan for Colin
though, because he is still with us, despite his long hard road,
he is still fighting to live and trying to recovery. We
all know if Colin recovers he may/will not be the same
(possibly, but miracles happen every day).
As for Ms. Dawkins, through
her pain and heartache she is "making it". The
days and months after this incident occurred, I witnessed her go
from not knowing how she was "going to make it", and a
bit weak at times, to the strongest person I have ever seen and
known...this woman finds strength beyond belief. Even
though her life has made a major turn and is completely turned
"upside down", I have seen her overcome and have rise
through it all. She now lives life one day at a time,
which is always at Colin's side, doing everything for him,
reading to him, talking to him and taking very good care of
him. He too is doing everything he can to make it out of
this dreadfulness...he is a real fighter!!!!
I honor you Ms. Beverlee
Dawkins, you are indeed an amazing intelligent,
courageous, strong woman, and a good mother and friend. I
sincerely cherish your friendship. Please stay strong for
Colin and you daughter Lorenda.
My heart is so full of sorrow
for what Colin has endured and what he is currently going
through, so please know that you (Ms. Dawkins) can always count
on us, and our thoughts and prayers are forever - for you
and most importantly for Colin.
My thoughts and prayers also
goes out to the many strong women/mothers who are going through
the same experience, because of the senseless violence that is
occurring in our communities on a daily basis. When will
it all end, when will our youths see that they are just killing
each other and leading themselves, and us all back into bondage?
must come to an end...it must stop!
