First of all, how beautiful is the Minister?! Brought back from death's door. I mean, not the outer gate; not the porch, but the door - key in lock, you name it. Still teaching, guiding, warning, Carrying. Never taking a break. Worryin' (yes, I said 'worryin') about us. Not just the Black nation, but everyone - the under-served, under-represented, the poor, the voiceless, the haves and have-nots. Listen, I could go on, but it's not my job to preach. Sorry.
Second, our prayers are yet again answered. As if Saviours' Day 2009, the reunion of Believers and friends, family, the wealth of wisdom flowing through the workshops, weren't enough, Min. Farrakhan gave us
an international cultural explosion in Mother Tynnetta's Ta Ha: Final Call Symphonic Suite on Friday, Feb. 17 at the Stephens Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
Earlier that day, he set if off with Min. Ava Muhammad (through the assistance of many, including Final Call Publishing Editor Nubian Muhammad). Min. Ava introduced the latest Study Guide in Min. Farrakhan's life-changing course, "Self-Improvement: The Basis For Community Development."
Study Guide 21, "The Education Challenge: A New Educational Paradigm For
The 21st Century" comes at a time when the U.S. public education, and let's be honest, to a degree, the private education system, is failing our children. The high school dropout rate is shameless, criminal, really. And masses of college-educated men and women are finding themselves back in their childhood bedrooms at their parents' homes, fresh out of college because there are no jobs awaiting the young graduates or their student loans.
What's the problem? Why is America's education system failing? I think it's because the system teaches us to get a job rather than creating something for ourselves and others, but that's just my opinion.
Don't worry. There's hope. Real hope. The concrete answers are here; they're clear; and they are FREE. Just download them at http://www.noi.org/study/.
Thank you Min. Farrakhan and everyone who sacrificed to make this happen.
Peace, Sis Charlene
