Nationwide - Triangle ADOS in collaboration with ADOS CT, ADOS NE, Twin Cities ADOS, Rocky Mount ADOS, and Friends of ADOS TV have co-sponsored a petition for COVID-19 relief specific for ADOS. The proposal, submitted by Concerned Black American Citizens (CBAC) on May 4th, calls for the immediate release of $2.4 trillion in stimulus funding to provide: $6,000 per month, a 60% housing incentive, and federal employee health insurance to Black Americans who have suffered the highest disparities in death.

Justification for this proposal is due to the high percentage (35.7%) of Black Americans that have died from COVID-19 compared to the percent (13%) of Black Americans represented in the US Population.

Ts Madison shares 6 Words of Wisdom:

1. Be comfortable in your own skin.
I have learned the first step to becoming happy is to feel comfortable in your own skin. Everyone was born with a flaw. No one is perfect. Accept yourself.

2. You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing.
Make it your goal to live. Find something you enjoy.

3. See the positive in every situation.
You will always run into unfortunate situations in life that are outside of your control. You can choose to feel sad, annoyed, angry, or stressed about the situation or turn it around and focus on the positive. You can choose to be stuck in a bad situation or let go, move on, and start anew.

In The Documentary The Last Dance Michael Jordan's Legacy Is Examined From Contrasting Even Contrarian Perspectives
Michael Jordan Credits Wikipedia (left) And ESPN (Right)

By JV Howard

While inundated by information overload on COVID19 and the subsequent fallout I find myself searching for an escape that did not involve life and death.  Reading "Lost in the Appalachian Trail," watching Miles Davis on Netflix, following Roland Martin on YouTube, and viewing The Last Dance on ESPN are few options I employ to mitigate my imposed shelter in place.

While being Lost on the Appalachian trail offered a virtual chance of not being found by COVID-19 in reality there is nothing more sobering than taking a  nostalgic look back at Miles Davis. His rendition of Ascenseur Pour - an innovative  sound track - with no orchestra, producer, or conductor was stunning, so much so, i purchase the sound track. But at some point reality beckons and all that awaits - enter Roland Martin candid streaming of news void of spin - uncut and truthfully.  Yet, its my love of the game of basketball that made the Last Dance a welcome retreat.    

Many of life’s metaphors and lessons can be found not in just work we do but in the games we play. If football is a game of inches then virology is the study of molecular behavior.  How often are we reminded of the gargantuan significance  of the smallest common denominator having a profound impact on the results we chase, the games we play, and the life we live…or die.

During this period when all sports have acquiesced to COVID - 19 mandate “The Last Dance” rings loud and clear as the behind the scene insight divulges just how mine field laden the road to stardom and greatness challenges.
