June 2017 Lifestyle Letter

Bold. Brilliant. Brave. Beautiful. Could I possibly go on? Of course, I could! Even so, there still would not be enough words in any dictionary (traditional or urban) to express my whole heart when it comes to the important role of men in our communities. They’re our husbands, our guys or simply our “boo thangs.” They’re our fathers, our sons and our brothers. They’re our nephews, our uncles and our godfathers. If the truth were to be told, I’d even go as far as to tell you that they’re often fabricated, but not nearly enough celebrated. Isn’t it about time someone expressed just how much they’re appreciated? And that, my friends, is the aim of this edition: to celebrate and appreciate our men!

It is our hope that this month’s edition will be a tremendous treat for you. We have so many positive vibes to share that I get excited just thinking about what’s in store as you embark upon this literary journey. May every story put a smile on your face, may you learn something new, and may you feel just a little bit better about all that makes South Fulton the amazing place that it is. Happy reading! And to all the fathers out there, whether by birth, by marriage or by simply standing in the gap, Happy Father’s Day!

Peace & Blessings,

Alonia Jones
