Representative Margaret Barrett from the Red Cross made us aware that although African Americans make up approximately fourteen per cent (14%) of the population, we comprise only one percent (1%) of the blood donors. Additionally, the African-American community has been spooked by the Tuskegee Experiment and other atrocities, that we are reluctant to avail ourselves to the benefit of organ donation. DaUelle Burgess, B. S., M. S.Tennessee Organ Donation Association is seeking to change that image with an organ recipient on hand to put a face on the benefits of receiving a second chance on life through a donor's testimony. We were able to see just how lives can be saved with this procedure. With the H1N1 threat, we need to be conscious of the potential effects this will have on our behavior. Washing ones hands seems so simple, yet this overlooked procedure has been responsible for many outbreaks. The Metropolitan Interdenominational Church provided AIDS testing with the results given (in private) within fifteen minutes. Having an AIDS test can be a traumatic experience by itself. If you are sexually active with more than one partner it just makes sense to get tested. Just because it has moved from the front page to the back page does not mean the threat is not present.
Prostate screening was discussed by Will D., RN Vanderbilt Medical Center and TSU's Verla Vaughn Ph.D. staff was on hand to discuss the threat of obesity due to the food chain being altered since our parent's generation. We discussed ways of preparing food to help lessen the side effects of chemicals and fertilizers used to boost production and shorten the time frame from birth to table preparation. Gloria Patton was very instrumental in this regard.
Processed foods are the single most crippling factor in our quest for good health. Can we continue to consume foods without knowing their origin and not suffer ill effects? I think not. We must also make a conscious effort to read the side effects of medicines. If the side effects will cause more problems than the potential for cure, should we accept that? Exercise is another often overlooked preventive measure. The old adage "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" bodes well here.
When it comes to Spiritual matters, one can never predict the level of intensity. After all it is not within our control to bestow. I think that's a good thing though. Naima Johnston Ph. D., one of the guest Solo Artists, remarked "You know it's good when you go to Minister to someone and you end up being Ministered to yourself." Is it possible to get much better than that? I don't think so. Even if we had video taped this event, it would not do justice to the level of fulfillment that those of us who were present felt as the Spirit had his way in the service.
Rap music weighed in as artist such as Toney Dabney, K-Lyte , The Jackson Sisters giving testimony in their original rendition. The Jesus Unconditional Praise and Worship Group took us to another level of Praise and Worship. TSU's students Trevor Porter, (Piano) Derrick Lee (Drums) and Brother Pollard (Saxophone) were in their usual form with a slice of Jazzy Gospel, titillating each participant with Soulful and Harmonic Balance added to the occasion. St. Luke's Combined Choir, organized by Rita Porche', open with gusto and finished with heart throbbing selections that made you stand up on your feet and clap to the beat. Truly, this event will be re-lived many times over by the time the next Fair is hosted. This Worshipful Occasion was the combined heart felt need from both Jon Bush, who is more popular in the HIP-Hop Genre, and myself. We are not afraid to try something new as long as God gets the glory.
