Not Just Some, But All

God Bless America and save us all; not just "your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" . . . but also save the descendants of those former slaves, brought here against their will to help fulfill the dreams and cultivate the land of those who yearned to breathe free.

As Black History Month 2020 comes to an end, and we move toward Women's History Month 2020, we are blessed to have met and interacted with Diana Starks.  Diana's impact goes far beyond race and gender.  This professional and personable young lady is making history in many areas impacting Northeast Ohio, the nation, and the world.
