For the first time in my life, I have taken to my heart, this is such a beautiful time. This is a month to reflect on afro-american forefathers. A month that many will celebrate throughout our nation. I am proud by nature, but the feeling of being an afro-american has become more sincere. I think of what it took our culture to become as who we are today. Althouhg it was then, it remains to be a reflection of me. I find myself searching for movies reflecting back on past times in America, when things weren't so great for afro-americans. I want a deeper understanding on the actions that took place, that remain in a memory for someone to want to write about it and in many events make a movie. It has become more of a discussion with others, but not reflecting so much on the negative. But, the postive that came from the sufferings. People that were oppressed, yet strong willed and determined to have a better life. The instinct of intelligence to become inventors even though many were deprived of learning to read and write. Education wasn't allowed for them to have, that made them want it more. A tool that would strengnthen their understanding. The movie Men of Honor, a man struggling to pass an obstacle course to become a Navy Seal. When asked" why do you want it so bad", he said, "because they don't want me to have it". He endured more to become a Navy Seal, but, he became one.
