The book of the month selection for August is Terry McMillan's newest novel, I Almost Forgot About You. I'm a fan of Terry McMillan's novels, yet  realized I hadn't read her recent work. I Almost Forgot About You was also one of the books I wanted to read this summer. Terry McMillan's writing style flows with such a matter of fact, in your face narrative that you can appreciate as a reader.

Former Cosby kid, Keshia Knight Pulliam, is going through right now. But I'm sure she will pull through this current storm and be even stronger at the end of it. In several months, Keshia will give birth to her baby girl. I don't know what happened between Keshia and Ed's marriage, that's none of my business.

However, it says a lot about a person to put an expectant mother under this kind of stress. The fact that she is a celebrity, Ed Hartwell knew the media, blogs and social media would take this story and run with it. Keshia is successful, educated and financially secure. Unfortunately she married a person who obviously did not share her vision of family, marriage and financial stability.

DNC 2016 Speeches: President Obama, Tim Kaine, Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton + Hillary Clinton's Acceptance Speech

The 2016 Democratic National Convention was a powerful week filled with stellar speeches from amazing Democrats who set the correct tone after a tough week. Although Bernie Sanders devout supporters were at times rude by yelling and booing while speakers were on stage; no one can dispute the fact that the riveting speech from President Barack Obama on Wednesday night was a turn in the right direction.

Democrats must be unified to beat Trump. Republicans and Independents must also realize that at this point it is not about party affiliation. This is about our country. It would be irresponsible to vote for Trump. It would also be dire if folks failed to go to the polls in November. It is crucial that Hillary Clinton win the election and continue moving America in the right direction.
