While my family and I spend our vacation time on a tour in Kemet -- now known as Egypt -- we're bringing updates to the WBLK audience as part of the "Know Thyself Educational Tour." The experience has been amazing so far, continuing our journeys to gain knowledge of self!
It all started in March 2009. While watching from the 13th floor of the Rand Building here in downtown Buffalo, I saw a large group of high school students fighting and behaving in a very demoralizing and degrading way at the corner of Washington and Broadway. I remember the saggin' pants, the disrespect, the lack of discipline and low moral standards!

The teachers support is needed for the children to even have a chance to move forward.
An Atheist organization in Pennsylvania recently erected a billboard depicting an African Slave with the words ‘Slaves Obey Your Masters’. The Atheist organization put up the billboard because they wanted to get the word out about the state House’s recent designation of 2012 as “The Year of the Bible” which they (atheists) find offensive.
