The Champions Who Walked Among Us

Learning From The Past- An Introduction To This Year’s (2013) Walk On Series


Hello Everyone,

I would like to thank you for your loyal support of my Walk On Series during the year of 2012.  It is an exhilarating feeling and an emotional high for me when I research the ladies I have chosen to learn about and pass on to you my reader.

This is the first article for this year, and it was an intentional delay.  The time needed to choose whose life I would become involved in demands that I look at the women carefully.  They become a part of me, and therefore, the Walk On Series always starts in March and ends in November.

Even though dead, these women live on, and the legacies they left behind astonish me every time I start digging.  I must admit that I learn enormously from them.

Their strength,

To move on,

To continue to struggles,

To turn the other cheek,

To reach out and help others,

To forgive and forget,

Are just some of the lessons that have affected my own life.

What is even more shocking for me was their determination to make a difference, to change themselves, and thereby change the world they lived in.

I sincerely hope these women of the past that I present this year will be an encouragement to you, and that each of you, whether male or female will continue to

Walk On!

    • I start out sitting before my computer, and I have to admit the first thing I do is prayerfully ask for guidance. As I begin to search thoughts and ideas come through.
      I didn’t know about Dr. Franklin before I started out. I had never heard of her but now I feel like I have met a fellow friend who has crossed over after completing her journey. She was a wonderful woman.
