Please join us for another episode of Black Fathers Radio this evening at 8 est, as we welcome Anitra Scott to the show. Anitra will be joining us to discuss the Det. Brian Stevenson Purple Kiss Foundation (http://purplekisses.org/Ho?me.html).
Purple kisses honors the life and legacy of former Baltimore City police officer and detective Brian Stevenson, and gives hope and help to the youth of Baltimore, just as Det. Stevenson did throughout his life, which was taken from him violently.
We will also be joined by other officers, who will discuss what it means to be in a position such as an officer in Baltimore City, and put your life on the line everyday.
What are the impacts of losing a father/father-figure on a family? A community? A people? If you have experienced that loss, please call in and join the conversation. We want to hear from you in the hopes that your loss will serve as others' gain, be their strength, give them encouragement. Or maybe you'll get encouragement of your own. Please call in 646-727-1205.
9 And also Elijah, unto whom I have committed the keys of the power of turning the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers, that the whole earth may not be smitten with a curse;
39 He also quoted the next verse differently: And he shall plant in the hearts of the children the promises made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall turn to their fathers. If it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Chronology and details of the Fathers, their birth, line, and little known facts concerning them.
Fathers are an under valued commodity because fathers are like air. U don't value them until they are not available. I know many times, my father was an after thought. He was dependable and I knew when he said something you could count on it. When my father walked into the room U could be sure things would be cleared up.I don't ever remember seeing my father panic. His consistency of behavior had a calming effect on me although he didn't always give me a solution to my problems. How does that work? It's kind of like what GOD does when U tell him your problems. God doesn't fix your problems that minute but you have faith that he heard you & you trust because he's not panicking then everything is going to be alright some way some how. Fathers make sure the family is taken care of each holiday, birthday, anniversary, graduation and Bar Mitzpha. Fathers daily fight all the demons of the world that arise with a straight face and stern jaw then come home seeking only some good ole fashion lovin' and respect. Fathers accept that they are the last defense when a family member is about to go over the edge. A father can talk a child down from the ledge and give him something to live for. Without the father there is no head and the body dies on the vine. It is never the same feeling when he's gone. My father passed and I yearn for the strength and serenity his voice brought to my life and as a father I try to be the calming factor for my family. We may act like we have no feelings but I learned from my dad that when a man becomes a father you have to be DaONE. Your family leans on you. Your wife and children are in a space where they aren't concerned with everyones everything. Where as with a father everything depends on you. Take the time to commend your father this weekend. That's a big enough reward for a father to keep him warm and fuzzy for a week.
We'll be talking about some of the efforts going on around Father's Day, including an event that I will be hosting, Black Fathers Rock!! Vol. II: A Hip-Hop/Spoken Word Tribute to Fatherhood on Fri., June 17th. Join us. If you know of any events coming up, spread the word to our listeners.
